On entry to the residence you are greeted with a formal entrance, ceiling rose, stained glass and chandelier leading to three full sized bedrooms, two with ceiling roses and all featuring views to the garden and ferneries outside, and all with built in robes. The large formal lounge has a bay window to the east, an extravagant ceiling rose and chandelier, and is serviced by gas heating. The beautiful high ceilings throughout add to the charm and character of the home. Leaving the formal lounge, we enter a modern well-appointed kitchen with walk-in pantry and a bay window to the east.
Upstairs there is an adult retreat with a large bedroom with built in robes opening onto a large decked balcony with views across the city, the Grampians, Mt Langi Ghiran and Mount Cole. The upstairs deck also overlooks an 8.5 x 4 metre in-ground, salt chlorinated pool and has access to the pool via an outdoor staircase, a gazebo/entertaining space and covered barbecue area.
A second living area also looks out onto the pool with plenty of natural light flowing in. You will find a beautifully renovated bathroom area with clawfoot bath to compliment a second shower and toilet near the pool entry. A fifth bedroom toward the rear of the home can also serve as a study or studio.
The property has extensive gardens and ferneries surrounding the house with every corner a different feature. The grounds are serviced with automatic watering systems with 27,000 litres of rainwater tank and pump back-up. To add to an already huge list of features there is a massive 9m x 8m shed partially with removable mezzanine floor. The shed also encompasses a bright, fully lined room which can serve as a teenager’s retreat, a home office, or a business office. The shed also has rear lane access. There is room for a motorhome or caravan in the large, high gabled double car port.
This property has so much potential, is perfect for the family and is an entertainer’s delight. It is in a central location within easy walking distance of primary and secondary schools, early child care, shops, supermarkets, cinema, restaurants and the train station. “Green Gables” really does tick all the boxes especially with a 3.5 kwh solar system installed. On the doorstep of the Grampians and within an hour of Ballarat and two hours of Melbourne, this opportunity to buy your forever house is one not to be missed.
