10 Rooms, 20+ Guests
Built Circa 1927
This building was originally constructed in 1927-28. In Over its 90 plus years it has seen many exciting moments in Rutherglen’s history.
In 2019 it was purchased by current owners Ben and Michael, who are both carpenters and along with their families have holidayed in Rutherglen for over 15 years. Being passionate about older buildings it was hard to resist the temptation when it was listed for sale. After lengthy discussions and countless hours of dreaming just how grand the previously run-down building could be again, they got our families together and decided to make this dream come true.
Over the next 15 months, they would work countless hours transforming it back to what you see today. Throughout this period they had great times and their partners and children fell in love with the building and its township as well.
There were of course times they really questioned “why” they were doing this. Sometimes this question seemed difficult to answer. During these times, they had to hold on to their passion for the building and its surrounds. They knew they had to save it from deteriorating and by turning it in to a place that can be enjoyed by others, they have been able to ensure its future preservation for years to come.
The experience of staying at this historic convent really is like no other.
As you may be understand this building was never designed as a home, however they are constantly improving the convent to be an enjoyable and comfortable space for guests to stay.
As part of our extensive original planning application an exciting second stage is now being designed.
Stage 2 shall see the existing school outbuildings transformed into a distillery space that will include café and restaurant facilities. The plan is to offer a vibrant and comfortable space that can be enjoyed by many in the heart of Rutherglen’s township. We will be working with designers to create a mixture of indoor and outdoor spaces that will be inclusive for everyone.
