About the property

Situated in a peaceful and extremely convenient location (opposite walking track parkland) within short distance to Lake Wendouree, Ballarat Botanical Gardens, the Ballarat Aquatic Lifestyle Centre, Ballarat Golf Club and Stockland Shopping Centre.

The home is light filled, clean and comfortable all year round with gas ducted heating and evaporative cooling in the living areas and bedrooms, fully fenced backyard, quality linens, plenty of entertainment for the kids inc free WiFi, Netflix and Xbox.

Each of the four bedrooms has a quality queen bed with fresh linens, plush towels and plenty of space for your belongings. The master bedroom has an ensuite and the remainder three bedrooms have easy access to the main bathroom.

The kitchen is well equipped (including a Caffitaly automatic coffee pod machine) and is centrally located within the home.

The dining and family room are light filled and spacious, with a large lounge suite, TV (with Blu Ray and Netflix) and sound system/radio. The dining table seats six.

The lounge room is comfortable with a leather modular chaise, TV with Netflix and Xbox, an extensive collection of board games for the kids (and Adults) and a variety of books to keep guests entertained.

An office/study (equipped with monitor and mouse) offers space for work.

The backyard is a secure outdoor space for the kids. From the backyard, access to the front can only be made either through the garage if both the door and roller door are open, or back through the house. Outdoor furniture is located under the attached pergola which is partially covered for rainy weather or Summer sun.

The garage has a remote control roller door and entry to the house can be made through the garage. A set of keys with remote is provided. The garage can comfortably fit 1 large car. 2 small cars can fit but this can be awkward. The street is wide with plenty of parking with houses on 1 side only.

The house is a short walk along reserves to the Ballarat Botanical Gardens, Lake Wendouree and the Ballarat Aquatic and Lifestyles centre.

Sturt Street (Ballarat's shopping and dining precinct) is a short drive away or if you prefer to catch the bus there is a bus stop on Gillies Street (roughly 7 minute walk) that goes to Stockland Wendouree and Sturt Street regularly.

Great place!!

  • 4 of 5

The property is well maintained and the environment is peaceful.

Very important is that the kitchen is well equipped that we could get the cooking done up quickly. At first we are worry about the noise the kids (not party but normal kids screaming etc) are going to affect the neighbour but i guess the house sound proofing is good enough.

Location is ok as it is just 5min drive to woolworth and other supermarket or fastfood.

There is nothing to complain about for this place and a thumb up!
