The front of Casa Ballarat retains it's original charm and includes an inviting entry and vestibule, 4 bedrooms, modern bathroom with soaking bath and separate powder room.

The modern expansive extension at the rear is the main living and entertaining zone.

A large open plan kitchen has an over-sized preparation bench that is the heart of the house. It overlooks the 8 seat dining table and living room with wood fired heater. The kitchen is very well equipped for keen entertainers.
