THE OLD PRIORY
This breathtaking three storey historic property, which was the former convent for the Sisters of the Brigidine Order, constructed in 1887, comes to market after being cared for by the same family for the past 30 years.
“The Old Priory”, steeped in history, has been successfully operating as an individual or group accommodation facility, that also caters for multi-function events, including weddings, full conferences or personalised retreats. Even social events such as balls and concerts.
Guest accommodation within the original convent includes a two-bedroom ensuite apartment, 3 large family rooms, 14 individual guest rooms, and 4 dormitories that can accommodate approximately 30 visitors each. There are also 2 separate one bedroom modern Miners Cottages with ensuites. For the owners, there is a private 5-bedroom, 2-bathroom residence.
Behind the scenes is a full commercial kitchen, a large separate scullery, two dining halls, two recreation rooms, a reading room plus reception centre and office suite. A premium 30kW solar system, including 120 x 250 watt Rene Solar Multi panels, has been installed to assist with energy efficiency.
The beautiful Victorian architecture of this iconic Beechworth property, complete with spectacular stained leadlight windows, has additional features such as Kauri ceilings and floors and two sets of impressive timber staircases with cedar handrails.
With a front veranda and first floor balcony overlooking lovely gardens, “The Old Priory” has a long-established clientele with forward bookings well into 2018 and beyond. Current trading figures are available upon request (after signing a confidentiality agreement).
With Beechworth’s strong tourism climate and the property’s location less than 500 metres from award winning restaurants and cafes, this is a premier accommodation destination.
