'BETHUNGRA' c1896 – FORMERLY OWNED BY SAINT MARY MACKILLOP

Historically a convent from 1901-15, the idyllic sandstone residence in Fore Street Canterbury ascended in stature in 1996 when former owner Mary MacKillop was beatified by Pope John Paul II. It's now been four decades since the title was last exchanged, and as the surrounding streetscape have developed over time, the 1157sqm parcel of 'Bethungra' retains several artefacts of the land and infrastructure from over 120 years ago. Showcasing the heritage building, which still impresses with sandstone construction, large proportions and original details, time will soon reveal what new vision these sacred grounds will inspire, with a grand family home, a subdivision, or a collection of boutique townhouses all possible with the street's R4 zoning. - Built by Varney Parkes who also designed Pitt Street's Marble Bar - Grand hallway and oversized bedrooms typical of c1890s design - 3 Bedrooms + 2 Bathrooms with plenty of space to add more (STCA) - Original features, each room has the façade of an original fireplace - Wide side access to the driveway, draped with idyllic grape vines - Rare for a development site to inherit this level of gravitas (STCA) - Close to foreshore parks, just 5 mins walk from Canterbury Station - Canterbury South Public School and Canterbury Hospital are nearby
