Imagine. The calm reassurance of an historically significant home built of solid granite - which has already stood for a hundred years. Gently elevated and set back from the road on a corner, it occupies premium, level grounds. French doors open onto the big verandahs from where it commands story-book views across your own extensive gardens and then over the adjacent heritage area, the trail, the park and the passing life of the old central village.

It has the truly unique enhancement of rare WA cast iron in a feature staircase and the big verandahs. It has real timber floors and has been updated and extended in granite. And there is that sense of history - even from the cooling shade of deciduous trees in summer. Such are the things which give the soul to this place.

'Deepdene' is a well kept 1915 classic - with timeless design and character.

For more than a century, this gracious home has been a Darlington icon.

Become part of its story. Now For Sale - the first time in 24 years.
