ICONIC GRAND LAKESIDE LIFESTYLE RESIDENCE
It doesn’t get much better than this. Sitting on the elegant verandah of a classic grand Victorian home set in lush and leafy manicured green gardens, looking out over the lake, sipping a G&T while the sun goes down…
This timeless piece of Ballarat heritage is ready for its next custodian. Built around the turn of the twentieth century, it is one of the original homes in this prestigious location. Set on 1395m2 of garden and originally known as “St Elmo’s,” 13 Wendouree Parade, Lake Wendouree is an iconic lakeside property.
Period character fills every room. with high ceilings, ornate cornices, decorative ceiling roses, and pendant lighting. At the front are the original formal lounge, sitting and dining rooms.
Statement fireplaces in the front rooms add to the feeling of opulence. There are few things more welcoming than the cosy glow of an open fire on a winter’s day, especially sitting at the lovely bay windows, looking out over the glittering lake. Artificial gas log fireplaces in the formal sitting room and rear living room add character as they warm.
Modern touches to this grand old home are sensitive to the era. Four spacious bedrooms, including master with ensuite, a family bathroom, dining room and two separate living areas form the original section of the home. A seamless extension with high vaulted timber ceiling and large glass windows houses a period-style modern bathroom, country style kitchen with walk-in pantry, a huge games room and bar PLUS a high vaulted timber ceiling and expansive glass windows looking out to the rear garden and a large heated indoor pool (930X430) with its own bathroom and toilet.
