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.
