The Old Convent

House Sold - Manildra NSW

The history of this beautiful historic home is amazing! It was built around the 1920’s and was owned by a widow Beatrice Putland, whom we believe was the doctor’s wife. She lived here for 50 years or so. Then it was sold to the Catholic Church in 1971 as a Convent for the nuns to live. They also conducted music lessons in the front room for the children from the Catholic School next door. The Manildra Catholic Church is to the rear of the property and conducts church services every second Saturday evening. This property would be perfect for a family or even as a BnB short-term accommodation investment. A building well loved and known to the Manildra community and farming families in the district.

Manildra has two fully operational mills with the Manildra Flour Mill being the biggest flour producing mill in the Southern Hemisphere. The other is a Canola Oil mill that exports its oil all over the world. Great employment opportunities for a family to relocate and have that country sea change. The town offers a service station, two schools, a very social pub and restaurant, golf and bowling clubs, post office, a butcher and grocery store. It’s an easy drive to Orange, Parkes and Molong, its a very tight knit community!
