304 Drummond Street North, Ballarat Central

Inner-city Victorian with a modern twist.

This appealing 5-bedroom Victorian home is an excellent example of the way a modern extension can blend harmoniously with classic period style. Sitting in the dappled shade of a large tree, the home is immediately familiar and welcoming.
Pretty cast-iron fretwork decorates the front verandah. Colourful leadlight panels surround the front door which opens onto the polished timber floors of the central hallway.

The front section of the home is the original Victorian property, and it houses the formal living room and 4 bedrooms. The formal living room looks out onto the front verandah and leafy garden, and an open fireplace with marble mantle and surrounds would be very enticing on those cooler evenings. Classic Victorian elements of this section include high ceilings, leadlight windows, picture rails, elegant timber fretwork and internal archways.

The master bedroom is a delight, with sash windows extending down to the floor to deliver an outstanding view of the garden. The original fireplace with timber mantel adds character and comfort to this important room. Adjacent is a separate dressing room, and a renovated bathroom incorporating period tiling along with a bath, large vanity, shower, and toilet. The generous second bedroom features leadlight windows with original stained-glass designs, a fabulously decorative wooden fireplace and access to a roomy dressing area. Two other bedrooms in this section of the home look out over the gardens, with one room opening out to a small deck.

Connecting to the contemporary rear extension is a glass-walled passageway and sitting area. This space is a sun-filled delight, both sides looking out onto gardens and decked entertaining area.

The modern section of the home holds the kitchen, huge lounge, 3rd toilet and the 5th bedroom. Modern appliances, granite benchtops and a generous pantry make this a beautiful and practical kitchen. The star is the enormous living area which sits above an understorey with carpark, wine cellar and storage room. Full length windows deliver views of treetops, so it feels like you’re sitting in a conservatory. A wonderful turreted centre skylight in the roof fills this space with light and adds height and interest to the room. The 5th bedroom or study is an interesting, angled space with large windows and is adjacent to the powder room.

Outside, established gardens surround the home and the two decked entertaining spaces which let you make the most of the private oasis.

This home sits in a leafy street within walking distance to the CBD. Close to schools, hospitals, cafes, shops, and the Yarrowee Creek trail, the location is hard to beat. If you want the convenience of an inner-city location plus the peace of a private estate, this home delivers. This could be your piece of Ballarat history and your private escape.
