Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Beautiful contemporary home on an acre plot within reach of Victorian coastal towns and National Parks offering bushwalking, ocean activities, music and cultural activities. Our home is bright and comfortable with views and decking onto a large country garden. It has two double bedrooms and a study with pull out sofa for extra bedding, large family bathroom and separate powder room. The lounge is open plan, the large kitchen having a woodburning Stanley range cooker, as well as electric cooktop and oven, also a laundry and pantry room.
Our home is situated in a village 15minutes south of the regional City of Ballarat, Central Victoria. Melbourne is less than 2 hours by car or via frequent train service from Ballarat or Wendouree. Ballarat is a major regional centre with heritage buildings , gardens and museums such as Sovereign Hill and the Eureka Centre and has a strong pastoral and goldrush history. It is well known for its cultural events and music and arts life.
The Grampians National Park with beautiful mountain bushwalks, waterfalls and outdoor sports and the Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road are all within 1.5-2 hours drive. The Ballarat-Skipton Railtrail is just behind our house for biking and walking with local village cafes providing a snack along the way.
