Gracious Landmark Property

Stanley & Martin is pleased to offer the opportunity to purchase a rich and fascinating piece of Australian history. Mt Carmel Convent is a gracious, landmark building proudly set on the corner of High and Culbertson Streets, Rutherglen. Opened in 1928 with ten Presentation Sisters in residence, the Convent provided primary, secondary and musical education as well as accommodation for resident students until its closure in 1989.

With its Gothic inspired architecture and old world charm, the property is offered in original condition and is the perfect blank canvas for the creative entrepreneur, investor or owner occupier to restore it to its original glory.

Spread over two generous levels, the ground floor offers a formal entry, kitchen with original wood stove, chapel and 8 main rooms with soaring ceilings, open fireplaces and stained glass windows. The upper level is accessed via two grand staircases (at either end of the hallway) and offers 11 bedrooms, boarding room style bathroom with 22 basins, 2 showers plus a separate bathroom and access to the wide verandah perfect for alfresco dining or drinks at sunset.

Outdoors the property offers two substantial, free standing brick buildings previously used as a classroom and assembly hall and a 100,000 gallon water tank.

The General Residential zoning provides the new owner with unlimited opportunities to renovate and continue its present use as a significant home or open a wide range of operations at the property including a B&B, boutique hotel, winery, function centre, tea rooms, craft gallery or place of worship, all subject to council approval.

Property includes the adjoining 9,582sqm vacant allotment, suitable for car parking or residential subdivision subject to council approval.
