Unique tree-change lifestyle property with private lake and stunning views

Running Gully is situated between Pemberton and Manjimup in the south-west of Western Australia and surrounded by stunning giant karri and jarrah trees, this property is very special.

Running Gully comprises 160 acres (64.7 hectares) with a stunning private permanent lake that covers nearly 15 acres and holds over 80,000 kLt of water...(14 million gallons in the old language). It is one of the largest private water holdings in the area with licensing from the Waters and Rivers Commission to draw water for crops and the marron ponds.

Running Gully sits at the interface of two distinct ecosystems: jarrah forest and karri forest, and their specific under-storey vegetation which supports many species of wild flowers including many orchids. Mostly karri loam soils with some small areas of sand and peat. Ideal for vines and small crops including avocado, various fruit trees and truffles. Manjimup Truffles are now rivalling the French black truffle in world culinary circles and many properties in the area are growing this crop with great success and it has become a major export business for the area.

The annual Truffle Kerfuffle has become a major event with chefs from all over Australia and the world coming for a weekend of fine food and wines. Running Gully is an outstanding property, known in the area for its beauty and tranquility is finally for sale. "Offering so much, a property for sale like this hasn't been available for a long time....a lifestyle and tree-change opportunity not to be missed."

160 acres surrounded by State Forest and Department of Parks and Wildlife plantations and unlike many farms in the region that have cleared paddocks that are running livestock or crops, Running Gully is mostly natural forest and bush lands plus of course the 15 acre private "lake".

The property offers a number of income streams, including the current marron and blue-gums but also other crops such as vines, avocados and truffles all currently being grown with great success in the region.

There is also excellent potential income for a tourism based business as Running Gully is located next to the Munda Biddi Trail. Currently zoned General Agriculture Rural that permits two residences plus up to four holiday chalets (STCA). There is also the possibility of subdivision and rezoning that would allow further expansion of a tourism based enterprise for holiday accommodation or other businesses.

Running Gully is located close to the popular wine growing and tourist town of Pemberton and the main service town and shire centre of Manjimup.

And a day at the beach is just a 45 minute drive away. The coast and beautiful beaches of the southern coast are not far away. The D'Entrecasteaux National Park, which is a significant wilderness area with the stunning monadnock "Mount Chudalup", a huge block of granite reaching 187 metres above sea levels where you can have a 360 degree views of the surrounding forest, heathlands, coast and the magnificent Yeagarup Dunes. The small village of Windy Harbour, which is well known locally as a great spot for fishing and surfing plus the white sandy beaches of Salmon Beach and Mandalay Beach are all under 60 minutes away and a great day out.
