The Brief: 
Luke commissioned Milk Chocolate to find his first investment property in Australia (with ambitions to purchase another one or two properties). This is a long-term strategy as he plans to hold the property indefinitely. The investment needed to be in a growth area, with a property the could have value added in the future. 

Purchase Reason: 
Investment Property/commence property portfolio

Ballarat, VIC

About The Property: 
3 Bed / 1 Bath / 1 car - 463m2

The property is a real diamond in the rough. Built-in 1900 it's certainly showing signs of age on the inside and out, however, has great period features on a good size block. The home is situated in a gentrifying area of Ballarat, a stone's throw to the towns existing and planned amenities and a commutable distance to the Melbourne CBD. Purchased with an existing 12-month lease in place which allows us to plan and prepare for the future renovation.

  • 25min walk to Ballarat train station with a direct line to the Melbourne CBD

  • 22min walk to the approved Ballarat GovHub
