Historic Ballarat Home is Reborn
A truly outstanding opportunity to buy a piece of Ballarat's history, located in the heart of town at Bakery Hill. Constructed circa 1865, this unique building has enjoyed many lives since the Gold Rush era, and is now reborn with a painstaking renovation to give it the new life it truly deserved.
Rebuilt from the ground up with no expense spared, it is now a gorgeous four bedroom residence filled with grandeur, and fitted out to a high standard for modern living while respecting its many original features.
Offering four large bedrooms, two living areas, and three bathrooms, there is a myriad of possibilities to use the property for business or commercial purposes due to the Commercial 1 Zoning (STCA).
Upstairs features three large bedrooms, the master suite huge in proportions and boasts a walk through dressing room and ensuite bathroom with free standing bath. Bedroom two also includes an ensuite, and all still feature operating fire places. Downstairs is a further bedroom, with adjoining bathroom where you can actually enjoy a bath in front of an open fire!
The stylish kitchen on the ground level boasts high-end cabinetry, timber bench tops, quality appliances, and a walk in pantry. Generous living areas include a formal lounge room to the front of the property, and a light filled informal family room to the rear.
Impressive hardwood floors, hand crafted timber-work throughout, and hydronic heating are just some of the many features of the property, not to mention the front balcony with restored fret work, wrought iron fencing and secure back yard, as well as everything being made new from the ground up.
Enjoy city living where you can walk to the train or to dine out, or perhaps live in and work from with the flexible floor plan and the beautiful creative environment it provides, the choice is yours. Call Chris to arrange a private viewing.
James Long built the home in 1865, he was the owner of the original Sunshine biscuit factory across the road, and the home was called ‘Long Wood’. He lived in a tent under Miners Rights prior to building the home. Once the home was complete he lived at 71 Victoria Street with his wife Mary and 8 of his children (there were 11 children but only 8 had survived). James was also Mayor of Ballarat East, and Justice of the Peace and also involved in the Ballarat East Orphanage for many years. James retired in Portland for his remaining years.
