Situated in the Avon Valley, an easy 1.5 hour drive from Perth, Deepdale Farm is an exceptional property with outstanding historical credentials. The farm is recognised as one of the first established in the region and has been continually in use since the 1830s.
Behind the rich past, the main homestead of Deepdale Farm is a successful and luxurious fusion of the traditional and modern. The architecturally renovated homestead boasts four bedrooms and four bathrooms, three living areas and an open plan kitchen and dining area. Many traditional features have been retained including original rendered walls, traditional fireplaces and pressed tin ceilings.
The renovation and extension were overseen by award-winning architects which have resulted in stunning details throughout that seamlessly blend the old with the new, including the beautifully reconditioned and stained floorboards, Italian marble bathrooms and custom designed trundle bunks.
The modern conveniences have not been forgotten with a state-of-the-art kitchen featuring integrated appliances, automated shutters and blinds, Cebus system, and reverse cycle air conditioning.
The outdoor areas are a triumph of understated elegance. The sparkling pool area is newly installed and has the feel of a boutique luxury resort. Views from the deck stretch across to the main homestead and surrounding countryside. For those who enjoy their fitness, there is also a tennis court and pavilion, and fully appointed gym including mirrored wall, fridge and air conditioning.
This remarkable property benefits from a number of other buildings and facilities including a four bedroom guesthouse, a party barn, workshop, hangar, helipads, olive grove and manager’s residence.
The self-contained guesthouse provides the perfect luxury accommodation for visitors with its four bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The party barn is the ultimate entertaining area – a sympathetically restored barn with surround sound speakers, bar area, scullery, integrated pizza oven and separate male and female toilets. Adjacent to the party barn is the museum which shows a history of the property through images and also houses local historical artefacts providing a journey through the ages.
The farm itself is set on more than 3,800 acres of undulating farming and grazing land. It currently incorporates an Angus Beef breeding enterprise and the full complement of plant and equipment. The Avon River divides the farm into two enterprises, Deepdale East and Deepdale West. East Deepdale is comprised of 4 lots, on separate titles totalling 1,603 acres. It is currently leased for an agricultural enterprise of mixed cropping and sheep, expiring [February 2019]. This lease could be extended for a further 3 years. West Deepdale is comprised of 2 lots, on separate titles, totalling 2,249 acres.
The surrounding area is one of great natural beauty, all within easy reach of Perth. Close by is Toodyay, the Avon River flowing through the picturesque centre of town. The town offers an array of charming galleries, boutique shops, wineries, sporting facilities, and eateries. Toodyay has a District High School that caters for children from Kindergarten to Year 10, and is also easily accessible from the city via rail - the trip is a scenic route through the Avon Valley National Park.
Deepdale Farm offers the potential owner a wealth of amazing attributes – historical significance, architectural brilliance, significant investment potential and the promise of an outstanding lifestyle, within this stunning setting.
