This is a unique opportunity to invest in a landmark venue, servicing locals and tourists in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. The property consists of 9,563m2 of land (2.8 acres) situated high on Mount Shadforth and commanding breathtaking views all the way to the Great Southern Ocean. You won’t find a better location to start your new venture servicing a growing tourism industry to the beautiful south west. Located just 4.4km from the popular tourist destination of Denmark, the property is uniquely positioned at the entry to Karri Mia Bungalows, Chimes Spa, and Karri Aura Caravan Park and Motel Suites, with Celestine Retreat right next door. In recent years it has operated as a restaurant, attracting custom from nearby guests, and as a popular destination for weddings and corporate functions. However there is real scope here to expand or vary the use to accommodate a completely new venture or introduce additional products and services, with potential clients driving right past the door to access their rental accommodation.

The property consists of a unique, hand-crafted timber frame building featuring exposed beams, pine ceilings and timber floors. There is an additional inter-connected building, with open plan layout, exclusive ablutions and access to a sunken courtyard with elevated stage and gazebo, used for ceremonies and performances. Both buildings enjoy breathtaking views. The main building, which was previously used as a restaurant, is serviced by a fully fitted commercial kitchen and the main floor area is fitted with a bar and separate enclaves for wood fired pizza and barista bar. 160 guests can be seated for table service in the main building and the adjoining function centre seats 130, that’s 290 together in one sitting. There is enough parking onsite to cater for 300 guests.

The venue can be used for so much more though. There is a current approval to develop and operate a micro-brewery and a Special Facility Tourism liquor license, enabling guests at Karri Mia to purchase take-away alcohol. There is also an approval to convert the existing function centre into manager’s accommodation so the new owner could live onsite. The large sloping lawn immediately in front of the venue ensures the view can never be built out, and this land can further be developed to add additional amenities. Some of the possible uses for this venue include:

• Maintaining the restaurant and introducing all day trading
• Adding a convenience store and sell groceries, coffee and liquor, servicing nearby accommodation
• Converting to a brewery or cidary, or winery restaurant and cellar door
• Holding live music events
• Running a restaurant and art gallery
• Running art, cooking or brewing classes and workshops
• Preparing and retailing gourmet produce, chocolate or toffee for on-site sale and distribution
• Becoming a specialist retailer, with or without cafe
• Converting to yoga studio, day spa or health and wellness centre
• Doing a JV with local accommodation to provide room hire for weddings and corporate functions
• Adding glamping style accommodation in front of the building, maximising the stunning views

The property is available for sale on a walk-in, walk-out basis with all furniture and equipment included. Contact me to request a copy the information memorandum containing more detailed information on the inclusions, approvals and licenses. A special inspection of the venue can follow.
