We are looking for a kind, garden loving person or couple who will enjoy living in a historic Federation style home in the heart of beautiful Ballarat. If you are someone who will conscientiously look after our home and garden with care, you can have a wonderful holiday in privacy and comfort.
Our Home & Location
Lake Wendouree is a hub of activity in winter and summer, it's 100 metres from the house, you can walk around the lake in an hour; often there's yachts and fishermen, and always the locals taking a stroll. Swans and bird life abound.. it's very peaceful to take a stroll and sit by the lake. There's cafes and bars within 5 to 10 minutes walk... the supermarket is close by. You can catch a bus or walk into the centre of town.. 15 minutes and you are at the cinema, the art gallery, Myers, Target and every type of restaurant imaginable. The house is 104 years old, very private and peaceful - it's the sort of home you can live in without feeling nervous about doing the wrong thing. The garden is very pleasant, we have central heating and open fireplace with wood for wintry days.
Responsibilities & Pets
The house needs to be secured when you go out, and it would be nice if you're home during the day (but not essential) but we need someone to always be at home at night. If you are nervous about big houses, and the occasional possum in the roof, this may not suit you. If you like space, high ceilings, leadlights, antiques and all comforts it will suit. Pot Plant watering would be most appreciated especially during any very hot weather. Bring in the mail each day so it doesn't mount up in the letter box. otherwise your time is your own to explore and discover the galleries, cafes, historic Ballarat , Lake Wendouree and tourism attractions including world famous Sovereign Hill.
