Carmelite Convent, Albert Park

This huge place on #BeaconsfieldParade was built in 1883-6 for the Carmelite sisters, who were attached to the Our Lady of Mt Carmel in Middle Park nearby. Like some other home for Catholic clergy like Presbyteries, it’s basically an Italian house, but with a solid Gothic arcaded verandah (the architect is unknown). It’s now occupied by the Brigidine sisters, not sure exactly what they do, even when I look at their website, a lot of advocacy ?
