What is the age of my house?

It is difficult to determine the age of the house, or any buildings on a property strictly by looking at a deed. A deed is for land, not the buildings on the land, and may simply state, "and the buildings thereon," or it may state nothing about buildings at all. Looking up the architectural style may help you determine the time period it was built.
