Perth, 13 October 2013- A stunning tourist destination in the Swan Valley is being offered for sale through CBRE.Brookleigh is a lovingly developed estate with a French inspired chateau, state of the art equestrian centre, 24 bed lodge and associated buildings, three further residences and Stewarts Award Winning Restaurant.
This outstanding property is situated on four certificates of title with a total area of over 33ha of undulating land on the Swan River in the established Upper Swan wine growing region.The quality of the improvements is matched by the professionally landscaped grounds, with features such as tree lined burgundy bitumen driveways and ornamental water features.
David Kennedy, Senior Director at CBRE, and Ryan McGinnity, Associate Director, are marketing the property on behalf of the owner.
Mr Kennedy said Brookleigh offers great potential for a buyer with vision to turn the estate into a world-class destination and capitalise on the limited accommodation currently in the region.
Brookleigh is already a world class destination for the equestrian disciplines and a renowned name in the Swan Valley and Perth as a function venue.
“With over 2 million visitors a year and the growth of the tourist facilities in the region, the time has come for a major hotel or serviced apartment development, subject to approvals, and Brookleigh is ideal for this purpose. Imagine a beautiful rural environment on the Swan River within 30 minutes of the Perth CBD and some 15 minutes from the domestic and international airports,” said Mr Kennedy.
“There is an excellent synergy with existing improvements for an accommodation resort,given the 120 cover restaurant, restaurant managers house, farm managers house, gatehouse/ office, lodge and health spa and additional land which could accommodate a few well designed golf holes, without major interruption to the equestrian facilities,“ he added.
The Chateau residence is an outstanding 7 bedroom building which includes 2 luxury self- contained suites and a health spa. All the residences - especially the chateau - are finished to the highest specifications. All buildings architecturally designed with an eye for detail.
The suites and lodge are frequently used by wedding guests or restaurant/function patrons as well as tourists in the valley which further underwrites the argument for more short stay accommodation.
The equestrian indoor arena is world class, being approx. 2400sqm and is used for dressage and show jumping, as well as having the flexibility to cater for large concerts or conferences. Adjoining is an elaborate stable/barn/conference centre and gymnasium plus many other features.
The property has over 1 kilometre of frontage to the Swan River to the north and east and enjoys 3 bore licenses. The soil is an ideal loam which produces consistently 80 round bales of excellent quality meadow hay annually, without sowing.
The property comprises 4 titles which are being sold in one line by Public Auction at 11am Saturday 9 November on-site, and if unsold as individual lots, if not sold prior to.
