CASA Ballarat is a beautifully restored 1920's Spanish mission style home located centrally in Ballarat. The house has been extensively renovated and extended to provide all the luxury mod-cons whilst paying homage to its beautiful Spanish Mission heritage.
The property is located within walking distance to the CBD, Sturt Street, Cafe's and Restaurant's, the Arts and Theatre Precinct, Lake Wendouree, Ballarat Hospital & Cancer Care Unit and Ballarat Central Train Station.
The front of Casa Ballarat retains it's original charm and includes an inviting entry and vestibule, 4 bedrooms, a modern bathroom with soaking bath and separate powder room.
The modern extension at the rear is the main living and entertaining zone.
A large open plan kitchen has an over-sized preparation bench that is the heart of the house. It overlooks the generous dining table and living room with wood fired heater.

A Blue-ray player and Netflix provide ample viewing choices (did I mention unlimited 80-100Mbps Wi-Fi is included!). There is also a Bose sound system. The living area has a large reverse-cycle split-system air conditioner and ceiling fans to keep the space cool in summer.
Outdoor Area 1:
The main outdoor entertaining area is accessible via double glass doors from the living room. This area is gated from front and back.
Festoon lights sparkle overhead and are a perfect setting for a romantic evening laying back in outdoor bean bags under the stars.
Outdoor Area 2:
The second outdoor area has a small seated area making it great to read the morning paper over a coffee. The gas BBQ is also located in this space.
The front loading Miele washing machine services the laundry space/mud room.
The indoor area is strictly non-smoking. Please smoke outdoor and away from open doors. Always dispose of the ash and butts in an environmentally friendly manner.
Please respect neighbours and keep noise to an acceptable level after 11pm.
The house is heated by a gas-ducted system. We ask that you to respect the environment and turn off heating while out of the house and while the house is sleeping. A well stoked fire-heater will keep the chill off the air during those chilly Ballarat evenings. The beds also have electric blankets to keep you warm and cosy!
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors fitted.
Other safety - fire extinguisher and fire blanket.
