Country escape

DO you fancy owning a historic tavern that has links to Fremantle?

Situated just two hours from Freo, the Pingelly Exchange Tavern was built in 1906 by the owner of the Commercial Hotel in Fremantle, Thomas Jeffrey Humphries.

With the arrival of the railroad in 1898, he anticipated the then-hotel in Pingelly would be a country escape for the people of Fremantle, and also provide food and transport (horse and buggy back then). Over the years it has had many famous guests including Lord and Lady Forrest who frequently stayed and entertained friends, and it was a staging post for Cobb and Co, with the stables still remaining.

According to the realtor, there’s a bit of work needed to the place, but the “rewards could be great”.

The Tavern is being offered as a going concern and includes the original stables, which can be converted into extra B&B accomodation, a retail shop, all plant and equipment, a liquor license (subject to approval), plus stock and more.

The uses for this grand building are vast including as a tourist bus stop, a brewery, restaurant, retail outlet, distillery and/or bed and breakfast.

If you fancy escaping to the country for a new lifestyle, this could be the one for you.
