About this listing
Originally built circa 1868 this magnificent Double Fronted Early Victorian home was meticulously restored in 2016 with the entire build taking 16 months. Architecturally designed to maximize space and light, all the living areas face north.

A finalist in the 2017 City of Ballarat Heritage Awards, "Inverleigh" is by far the best example of a renovated period home currently offered for sale in the sought-after Central Ballarat property market.

The rebuild was exhaustive with the refurbished front façade and 2 working fireplaces being the only original components of the house remaining. Each piece of the front façade including the fully restored sash windows, weatherboards, cast iron lace work and grand entrance were dismantled and sent off-site to be restored by master craftsmen under heritage guidelines. Both chimneys have also been completely restored under heritage guidelines, including 200mm underpinning to ensure they last another 150 years.

The remainder of "Inverleigh" is a completely new build from the ground up; new electrical wiring, new plumbing, new concrete peers, new Vic Ash hardwood timber floors, new Meranti timber windows and doors and new James Hardie Linea composite weatherboards with a 25 year manufacturer's warranty.

With a 5.5 star energy efficiency rating "Inverleigh" provides you with the modern conveniences you should expect in a property of this calibre. The floor, ceiling and wall insulation ensure that the central heating and air-conditioning will keep you comfortable all year round and the instant gas hot water will reliably service the entire family.

Inside you will find nothing but the best quality fixtures and fittings, pure wool carpet, piped surround sound, Australian made Plantation Shutters and alarm system.

The Chefs Kitchen boasts soft close drawers, luxury stone bench tops which complement the 2 Pac joinery, 900mm Technika stainless steel oven, Technika dishwasher, fridge plumbing and hardened glass splashback.

Upstairs you will find the master bedroom and parents retreat with breath-taking city views. The "hers "component of the "his and hers" walk-in robes is big enough to be used as a dressing room. Both the master ensuite and downstairs main bathroom have floor-to-ceiling tiling and luxury stone benchtops.

Outside you will find 2 separate North facing decked entertainment areas, mains gas BBQ plumbing, oversized 6x6 double lock up garage with remote controlled door, and a small low maintenance cottage garden.

Close to schools, cafes, public transport and the Ballarat CBD this magnificent home on its own title is certain to appeal to the most discerning of buyers.

A unique opportunity that you may not see in the Ballarat property market again for some time.
