Perth’s largest equestrian centre for sale

Perth’s largest equestrian centre and 72 acres of land in the newly built Barrabadeen Estate is on the market, with a price guide of $2.75 million, while 12 other 50-acre blocks are also for sale.

Situated at 315 Reen Rd Gidgegannup, 30 minutes from Perth, the Estate is famous for being home to the bloodline of the world-renowned and multi-Olympic Gold Medal winning horse, the Barrabadeen Stud.

A recent redevelopment of the equestrian centre has seen the construction of a 10,000 square metre floodlit arena, new stables and dressage area. It will see its first event on February 28, 2017.

Perth’s riding community are very excited about the centre’s offering, which includes a 50-horse agistment centre, 12 fully enclosed and managed stables, a day yard and riding trails throughout the 800-acre Estate, according to its developer, Aaron Evans.

“There has been a great deal of interest in the arena from different riding groups such as Mounted Games and a variety of equestrian clubs that don’t currently have a home,” Mr Evans said, adding that the arena is the biggest of its kind in Perth.

Also included on the 72 acre block is a 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom house, large workshop, hay and shearing sheds, stables and a ground-fed dam.

The 12, 50-acre blocks on the Estate are being released to the market and will be seeking expressions of interest.

Eleven of those are vacant land and hold building pre-approval, while one block features a six-bedroom, three-bathroom house and sweeping views over GIdgeegannup Brook Valley, according to selling agent Ben Hamilton from Ray White North Quays.

“You’re at the top of the range here and as far as rural developments go, there is nothing like it this close to Perth. Everything else is two, three, four, or five-acre lots,” Mr Hamilton said, adding that there are four spring-fed dams and a network of creeks throughout.

Speaking of the Estate’s infrastructure, Mr Hamilton said it is NBN-ready and has bitumen roads throughout and three separate exits onto Reen Rd, created as part of a comprehensive fire plan. Each block has single phase power.

While the Barrabadeen Estate is less than 15 minute drive or school bus ride from Midland, one of Perth’s central hubs, Mr Evans described it as peaceful country living at its finest.

“It is amazingly quiet. There is plenty of wildlife and being up high you have picturesque views of the undulating hills and green pastures.”

“If you are into horses and country living there is simply nothing like it in Western Australia.”
