Location: Adelaide

Nominated by the public as one of their favourite buildings in Adelaide in 2013, Darling House is not only historically and architecturally significant but has been the source of much intrigue since being left idle in 1997.

For the last 18 years Darling House has sat disused and un-maintained. Rising damp, water damage and wood rot have taken its toll on this once bustling establishment.

However, plans are afoot to restore the old building. Scheduled to be completed by the end of this year we eagerly await to see her rescued from its current dilapidated condition.
