Steeped in Australian History

Gracious and steeped in history, Mt Carmel Convent built circa 1927 is proudly located on a substantial parcel of land in the heart of the Rutherglen wine making district. Boasting a commanding frontage the property is offered to the market in original condition and presents the perfect blank canvas for a significant home, B&B, boutique hotel, winery, function centre, tea rooms or gallery STCA.

With its Gothic inspired architecture and old world charm, the building is spread over two expansive levels with the ground floor featuring a formal entry, kitchen with original wood stove, chapel and 8 main rooms with soaring ornate ceilings, fireplaces and leadlight windows. The upper level is accessed via two timber staircases (at either end of the hallway) and offers 11 bedrooms, boarding room style bathroom with 22 basins, 2 bathrooms and access to the elevated balcony.

Outdoors the property offers two substantial, free standing brick buildings, carport, 100,000 gallon water tank and an adjoining 9,582sqm vacant parcel of land.


Located approximately 3 hours from Melbourne, 35 minutes from Wodonga and a 2 hour drive from the snowfields, the township of Rutherglen is located in the tourism hub of North East Victoria. Originally a gold-mining town in the mid-19th century, Rutherglen has since developed into a major wine-producing region, with more than 15 wineries all located within a short drive from the town centre.

The main street of Rutherglen maintains its historical charm with most of the shop fronts retaining the same look they had a century ago. Attractions within the town include Lake King which is surrounded by Apex Park and Rutherglen Park, as well as the historical wine-bottle-shaped water tower.

The wider North East region provide first class health services, primary and secondary schools with tertiary educational facilities in proximity.
