Panoramic views from the heights of Ballarat’s most exclusive living precinct!

On an elevated 5 acre property at the edge of Creswick State Forest this stunning Peter J. Thompson architecturally designed home offers privacy and an idyllic lifestyle within the Australian bushland.

Entered via an imposing 3 metre door, the home has a great feeling of space. One living room flows to the next, and all borrow a sense of space from the full-length western windows with sweeping views to the southern Pyrenees and northern Grampian mountains. The home facade is a mixture of textures and finishes, giving a grand impression of red brickwork and soaring iron columns.

Inside, lofty Red Cedar curved ceilings and sweeping lines of natural timbers give the home a unique and stylish feel. The lounge and dining areas are generously proportioned and ideal for entertaining or private contemplation. A well-appointed kitchen, with expansive windows overlooking lawns and gardens, adds to the ambiance and boasts ample storage, a Victorian Ash slab benchtop, a ceiling of Red Cedar panelling, a stainless-steel Ilve double oven and cooktop, a dishwasher, and a fold-away ironing centre.

The master bedroom, elevated on a mezzanine level, is spacious and includes a walk-in-robe and ensuite with space for a spa. Four robed bedrooms, with broad windows and stepped/pitched ceilings, complete the ground floor, while a sixth bedroom/office or children’s living area boasts an elegant bay window and occupies its own second floor.

Beautifully established landscaped gardens and an alfresco dining area beside a bespoke pond, with waterfall and underwater lighting, offer a range of outside areas to relax, unwind and entertain.
The property is only 11 minutes’ drive from Ballarat CBD, 6 minutes’ drive from a shopping centre, and seconds from an unlimited network of forest tracks and foot trails. Its position and the extraordinary views on offer make it one of a kind in Ballarat.
