Offering character and charm of a bygone era, while boasting 10 acres or approx. 4 hectares of land and virtually on Ballarat?s doorstep. Introducing 'Thornwood' Circa 1860's - this stunning Bluestone and weatherboard residence, has been fused with a distinct aura with original character & details along with modern convenient finishes and fixtures.
Firstly the two acres of English gardens provides a beautiful peaceful setting with colours, textures and perfumes along with prolific fruit trees (including plum, apples, quince, mulberry and olive), while summers will be filled with various water sports with Lake Burrumbeet just moments away.
Another bonus of this unique property is the historical old dairy with cattle yards and loading ramp with internal room with concrete floor and power which can be used as a fabulous party room or further entertaining space outdoors. There is also a raised floor shearing shed and combined workshop with power, along with a large Bluestone stable complex which is utilised for car accommodation and storage.
Approx. 8 acres of the land is fenced into a paddock, which is ideal for cattle or horses while also providing the opportunity for agriculture, horticulture, viticulture and/or hobby farm pursuits. Two concrete tanks supply approx. 60,000 litres of tank water plus a reliable bore that feeds the gardens and lawns.

The kitchen boasts a good size walk in pantry, with the dining & family room offering the beauty of the original chimney (with gas heater insert) and timber mantel. There is also a freestanding combustion heater that plays a pivotal role if there was a need to further warm the home.
The library and/or music room captures an artistic atmosphere with its deep coloured walls and timber ceilings, while the formal lounge offers a sunny bay window, a built in book shelf and lighter tones to utilize day and/or night. The master suite is a romantic zone with a pendant chandelier and drapes, while the further bedrooms and bathroom are also beautifully decorated to compliment the home.
