Property Sold for 25,000.

A Swedish businessman, Mr. W. O. Ohlson, has bought the historic 471 acre Meadowvale property at Appin, near Picton, from Mr. W. Maskus for about 25,000.

The property has within its boundaries a 100 acre grant made to Andrew Hume, brother of the explorer, Hamilton Hume.

The sandstone homestead, built more than 130 years ago, has a fortified cellar with gunpits used to ward off attacks by aborigines.

Wylie and Sons, of Camden, negotiated the sale.
