Set on three levels, this grand Victorian home has history veritably oozing from its solid bluestone foundations.

Built in the 1890’s the front of the house was remodelled in the early 1920’s with render and bay windows added and a new kitchen was built on at the back.

In its day this was a grand home on a large scale with high ceilings and original leadlights still in place throughout.

The entrance hall is spacious with the hard wood carved balustrade adding drama as it snakes aboveto the upper levels. Authentic antiques, the light fittings would be collector’s items today.

Upstairs is a bathroom overlooking the backyard and the toilet is separate. On this level there is a little study. Another small flight of stairs leads to three bedrooms.

Two of the bedrooms are huge with many features of the day such as a built-in dressing table, fireplace and mantle. Overlooking the street, the master bedroom has built-in robes and a box seat from which to watch the world go by.

Outside, the stables of a bygone eraare something to behold. Dating back to Ballarat’s blacksmith in 1909, these buildings fire the imagination with possibility.

Close to shops, cafes, health care professionals, schools and the centre of town, the current owners have been happy here for 40 years. The home awaits another loving family to make it their own.
