Be­tween the ma­jor South West ar­ter­ies of the Bus­sell High­way and Caves Road, Calgardup Brook Es­tate is an estab­lished vine­yard cur­rently pro­vid­ing its grapes to some of WA’s most pres­ti­gious winer­ies.

The ir­ri­gated vines are of mixed va­ri­eties and were planted be­tween 1995 and 1998.

The ver­ti­cal trel­lis­ing sys­tem has been beau­ti­fully built from pine and steel posts and cov­ers about 34ha.

Row widths are about 3m and vine spac­ing is 1.6m, run­ning north-south on the prop­erty.

A big olive grove of about 300 trees is also a fea­ture of the op­er­a­tion.

Be­cause the roots of all plant­ings are well estab­lished, they re­quire very lit­tle wa­ter­ing from the two large dams in the cen­tre of the block.

Over­look­ing the dams is a cedar weath­er­board four-bed­room, sin­gle-bath­room cot­tage which is cur­rently used as a man­agers quar­ters.

The large barn-style work­shop has about a 320sqm floor space with an ad­di­tional lean-to of about 90sqm.

Com­fort­able work­ers’ ac­com­mo­da­tion is also at­tached to the west side of the build­ing.

The prop­erty had pre­vi­ously been ap­proved to be di­vided into three lots which may be re­in­stated, giv­ing a po­ten­tial buyer op­tions if they do not wish to con­tinue to sup­ply the wine in­dus­try with qual­ity grapes.

Don’t miss this op­por­tu­nity to have a sub­stan­tial hold­ing in WA’s South West that could give a great re­turn on in­vest­ment.
