21, Ripon Street North, BALLARAT CENTRAL, VIC 3350

Prime Location 728m2 Property With Rear Access

This property is sited just 270m from the shore of Lake Wendouree and is a short walking distance to pubs, schools, shops, hospitals & restaurants.

Providing the new owner with plenty of scope to renovate & extend (STCA) to create a grand and stunning home in a blue-chip location, the property will need extensive maintenance works as part of it’s upgrades.

This unique pre-war home of brick construction with a terracotta shingled roof would have been admired by many over the years as they travelled from Sturt St to the Lake along Ripon Street. With 3m ceilings throughout, most of the heritage features remain including original timber doors, many with intact lead lighting, decorative cornice work, panelled ceilings and window seats.

Featuring formal lounge and dining rooms either side of the entrance hall, we have carpet flooring and picture rails on all walls. There are three bedrooms, two larger ones on the north side and a smaller one at the rear. The family bathroom has been updated and has a single vanity with Caesarstone bench, shower and toilet.

The kitchen has updated stainless steel appliances including oven, stove, rangehood & dishwasher. The charming original cabinetry remains intact. Beyond we walk through the original porch to the internal laundry. Adjacent, and providing access to the backyard is a sunroom addition, capturing north and westerly sunshine.

The outbuildings incorporate a woodshed, external toilet and single lock-up garage accessible from Republic Lane to the rear. The boundary fence on the north side of the property is scheduled to be replaced shortly. All other improvements would be a vast opportunity for the next owners to create an extraordinary and feature home in the Ballarat Central / Lake precinct, building on what is a beautiful and unique piece of architecture.
