21 Roberts Road, Pemberton
Unique West Australian lifestyle opportunity. Surrounded by State Forest, national parks, avocado orchards and farmland, this undulating 7.44ha (18 acres) stunning property with high-level modern tourism and hospitality infrastructure offers a rare and unique lifestyle opportunity within Western Australia alongside a place to call home. Renowned for being Australias largest black truffle producing region and in the heart of the abundant and richly diverse Southern Forests fresh food bowl, this is a beautiful place to unplug from the stresses of modern life, reconnect with nature and delicious fresh produce and become part of a growing country community. This highly regarded food and accommodation business comes greatly supported by the local communities in the Southern Forests region and with visitation from the wider regions of Western Australia and beyond. Being drawn to the Pemberton area by the breathtaking natural environment, existing tourism industry, fresh produce and with established experience in hospitality and building, Sophie and Chris Zalokar purchased the property in 2005, undertaking the building and development of what is now known as Foragers Field Kitchen & Cooking School. Originally established in 1950 by Italian migrants, the property now provides a four-bedroom, two-bathroom owners or manager residence; a three-bedroom, two-bathroom Farmhouse Cottage; three luxury studios, three luxury chalets; and a multi-purpose food building with a commercial kitchen, wood fired oven, large dining space and kitchen garden. All of the buildings and property infrastructure have been built and maintained to a modern and extremely high-level industry standard, with the new Owners requiring no further investment except to put their own unique stamp on this well-established and successful business. Although focused on being primarily a food-based business, this luxury-level accommodation based property has great scope and endless creative opportunities for a range of applications such as a yoga, artist, corporate or active leisure retreat, boutique wedding venue, or the Field Kitchen building could simply be offered for group self-catering events. Having realised their vision with their children grown, Sophie and Chris are now looking to explore other creative opportunities. Understanding the challenges of a city to country transition, they wish to offer settlement assistance and support for the new Owners if desired.
