Sweeping city views from this natural masterpiece makes it one of Ballarat’s finest lifestyle properties on offer.
Dedicated vendors built the earthy Invermay home at 24 Acacia St from stone, timber and concrete about eight years ago, creating a timeless design that blends into its country landscape.
It’s now for private sale with a $2.9-$3.1 million piece guide, which CoreLogic shows would make it the most expensive residential sale in the suburb.
Jellis Craig Ballarat agent Phil Hayward said the house was cleverly divided into two wings: one for living and entertainment and the other for accommodation. The two open sections were connected by a study and easy-care outdoor zones.
An impressive stone wall runs through the length of the resting wing, which includes four large bedrooms, three bathrooms and a rumpus room.
The living domain boasts a stylish black kitchen with Miele appliances, a feature fireplace and sliding door access to a covered outdoor entertainment area near a heated infinity-edge pool.
Mr Hayward said another “spectacular feature” was views of the sparkling lights in central Ballarat, which could be spotted in the distance at night.
“There are a number of beautiful quality homes around here, but this is a real standout,” Mr Hayward said.
“There’s also a self-contained studio where the vendors lived while building the residence, which is now an ideal option for guest accommodation.”
The six-star energy rated home is supported by solar power, a greywater system and double glazing.
This is the first time the property has been put on the market since being built.
