In a great location, on a leafy tree-lined street in the popular suburb of Soldiers Hill, this wonderful three bedroom period home, full of charm and character is just waiting for you! Front picket fence, and verandah with iron lacework and headlight windows at the door create an immediate appeal, and once inside, the characteristic ceiling roses and cornice work typical of the era continue. The living, dining and kitchen is open plan and flooded with natural light, whilst the 3 bedrooms have BIR's and good storage. Bathroom is huge with claw-foot bath with shower, a separate toilet and wide hallway compete the inside. Polished hardwood floors & quality carpet throughout, with under-floor central gas heating, and split system a/c for the warmer months. Outside the decked pergola offers fantastic, elevated views over the extensive garden area, with plenty of storage under the deck downstairs. A bonus is the large room beyond the decked area that could easily serve as another bedroom, home office or studio. Completing the picture is a garage with workshop & remote, good driveway with automatic gates with enough room for a Caravan or extra vehicle. The garden is planted with low maintenance shrubs, and offers a private and secure area for children to play. All this is within minutes to the Ballarat train station and city centre!
