CASA Ballarat - The Family Home - is a beautifully restored 1920's Spanish mission style home located centrally in Ballarat. The house has been architecturally renovated and extended to provide all the luxury mod-cons whilst paying homage to its beautiful period heritage.
The property is centrally located on Dana Street, within walking distance to the CBD, Sturt Street, Cafe's and Restaurant's, the Arts and Theatre Precinct, Lake Wendouree, Ballarat Hospital and Ballarat Central Train Station.
The front of Casa Ballarat retains it's original charm and includes an inviting entry and vestibule, 3 bedrooms, a cosy sitting room, modern bathroom with soaking bath and separate powder room.
The modern expansive 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 8 seat dining table and living room with wood fired heater.
There is also an additional bathroom with soaking bath, a separate power room and study nook.
The Laundry/mudroom facilities are located at the back of the house.
The double lock up garage has direct entry through the butler's pantry with driveway access off Lyons Street South.
