Saint Jospeh's Convent presents an opportunity that most will see once in a lifetime, this is your time. Be it commercial, tourism, professional or lifestyle - Saint Joseph's offers you an opportunity unlikely to be seen again.
Backing onto Bungendore's Commons and overlooking the playing fields, tennis courts and the swimming pool sits one of Bungendore's most outstanding buildings, 'The Convent'.
St Josephs Convent was opened in 1891 and remains in extremely good and original order for a building of its age.
This magnificent double & triple brick two storey building is steeped in history and was the home of Saint Mary MacKillop during her frequent trips to Bungendore. The majority of the original features remain - fireplaces, skirting boards, an impressive staircase, cedar doors, plaster cornices and ceiling roses along with some beautiful stained glass windows that hark back to an era when buildings of this nature were built to impress... and last.
The Convent currently comprises
a 4 Guest Suites with Bathrooms
a 3 Additional Bedrooms
a 2 Kitchens
a Dining Room
a Lounge Room

To the eastern side there is a Chapel with stained glass windows, and a mezzanine area where madrigal singers once preformed.
Whether the Convent stays in private hands or becomes a venue for visitors and tourists, the deciduous trees and flowering shrubs will delight those with time to enjoy the spacious gardens. A very large Paloma tree offers summer shade on the eastern side of the building and in spring it is adorned with abundant delicately scented blossoms. A rose covered arbour, lavender hedges and an array of flowering bulbs offer year round colour.
A large walled courtyard and the cloistered front veranda are shaded and cool places to enjoy your summer afternoon. A large terrace is positioned off the back of the building and would make a perfect setting for seated outdoor dining for guests or just a wonderful place to spend some time.
