"The Gunyah" 126.46 ha (312 acres)With the very best that a rural lifestyle can offer, "The Gunyah" gives you privacy and natural beauty as well as ample size and resources should you wish to operate an agricultural or tourism business. Conveniently located 1.5 hours from Perth, 30 minutes from the thriving regional centre of Bunbury and just 5 minutes from Brunswick Junction town centre, "The Gunyah" is in a picturesque and secluded location at the end of Melville Road.
As you arrive, you will experience the dams full with bird life, and know you have found somewhere special. The gently undulating landscape captures pastoral vistas, extending east to the Darling Range. The property is bounded by two locally significant rivers, the Brunswick and Wellesley that provide a variety of passive recreation opportunities. The owners have lovingly planted in excess of 4000 native trees and shrubs to restore and bolster existing remnant vegetation of Marri, flooded gums and paperbark communities.
The two spacious residences are constructed of brick and stone with the original homestead built in 1896 and the second home in 1969. Both are well maintained, in good condition and have been lived in continuously. These homes will continue to serve as quality rural residences for many years to come.
"The Gunyah" has been owned and cared for by generations of the same family since the 1920s. Since then the family has primarily reared cattle, operating as a successful dairy enterprise and more recently as a beef farm.
The farm is divided into 36 paddocks (2 ha average), serviced via lane-ways with irrigation to approximately 30 ha. The internal and boundary fencing is serviceable with a hot wire. All paddocks except two have piped water troughs.
"The Gunyah" has 127 megs of water for irrigation. The district's Harvey Water irrigation runoff maintains the water flow in both the Wellesley and Brunswick Rivers through summer months for stock and the environment. Irrigation water is available from the Brunswick subject to Harvey Water approval on a non guaranteed basis.
All infrastructure, hay shed, machinery sheds and workshop are in good condition, as are the steel cattle yards.
The two brick dairies have been out of use for several years and provide a great opportunity for conversion into farm stay accommodation or refitting for the rural enterprise of your choice.
Don't miss out on this opportunity for the perfect balance of natural beauty, ideal location and business potential.
