STEEPED in history, class and greenery, Deepdene is one of the landmark properties of the Perth Hills, swathed with a splendour you cannot look past.
Found in the bohemian suburb of Darlington, this five-bedroom, two-bathroom homestead honours the spirit of its namesakes: a large diamond and an English manor house, with a combination of cottage charm and dazzling features.
Once past the tall gates and through the lush greenery, you are greeted by a gorgeous façade of locally sourced stone, encompassed by a classic wrap around veranda befitted with all the vintage trimmings.
Entering the home via either the large farmhouse double doors or a white spiral staircase to the second floor, you will be left breathless at the meticulously preserved heritage of this 1915 building.
Ten-foot-high ceilings with tulip pendant lighting and moulding are paired with wandoo timber floors, French doors and dark-wood original fireplaces throughout the two stories of formal and informal living rooms.
A spacious and modern kitchen boasts marble topped benches, sleek cabinetry and views out into the garden from unique beamed windows, the contemporary space blending seamlessly with the old-world splendour.
The main bathroom offers black and white checked tiling, a classy vanity and large freestanding bath, with full floor to ceiling windows to watch the world go by whilst soaking in bubbles.
Several of the spacious bedrooms and main living areas have direct access to the veranda, allowing a 360-degree view of the beautiful green gardens for every member of the family.
Descending a flight of stone stairs from the rear of the upper balcony, you reach an enclosed courtyard perfect for an outdoor entertainment setup or a natural study space, with a winding pathway leading down to the manicured grounds.
Located just across the way from the town hall, tennis courts, park, oval, café and church, you won’t have to fret about sacrificing luxury for amenity.
105 Darlington Road is a hidden heritage gem you don’t want to regret not digging for.
