In a town full of surprises, here lies your opportunity to own a piece of local history. This stunning building was commissioned in 1924, operating as the local convent until 1969 where it was decommissioned and has acted as a private residence ever since.

The home incorporates a clever two storey design, with the kitchen, butler’s pantry and dining room located downstairs.

The home provides two, reverse cycle air conditioning units, a slow combustion fireplace and gas-fuelled hydronic heaters to keep your family comfortable year-round.
