'General Darling Inn' - Historical 1820's Home


This gorgeous historical property has been nobly standing since the late 1820s. One of the oldest houses in the area, it was first licenced in 1830 as the General Darling Inn. Within these walls is a rich history with generations of stories to tell.

Set on a large 955sqm block you enter the home via a covered front verandah which has a "convict brick" built path. You step into a sympathetically renovated home which has retained many of it's original features and charm.

The property has a formal lounge with fireplace and formal dining with wide timber floors and 11 foot ceilings. The expansive main bedroom has original timber slab walls, brick fireplace, split system air conditioner and character filled ensuite. The bedroom opens out through timber French doors to a large undercover alfresco area and landscaped gardens.

The beautiful country kitchen has been modernised with a 900mm oven with gas cook top, dishwasher and also opens out to the rear deck and gardens. Original bathroom with claw foot bath and heritage tiling.
Upstairs offers a wonderful space for additional bedrooms or home office with timber lined pitched ceilings and dormer windows.

The authentic bath house is now being used as a workshop area and still has the original wood chip heater!

The level child and pet friendly yard has an array of fruit trees with a garden path leading to an oversized two-storey barn. Built in more recent times but with the charm of yesteryear, it is an ideal home office, man cave or teenagers retreat.

Located in a popular location close to Richmond shops, station & schools with easy access to Penrith centre. This is a rare opportunity to own your very own piece of Australiana history.
