A Bowna farming property with a Cobb & Co connection sold privately ahead of an online auction scheduled to be held on Friday, May 8.
Old Toonallook, 1233 Wymah Road, sold last weekend for an undisclosed price within the pre-sale estimation of the early to mid $2 million range.
Real estate agent Dave Colvin, of Ruralco Property, said an Albury professional couple bought the 104-hectare listing and intended to live there.
The coronavirus restrictions changed original plans to hold a conventional auction and also affected inspections, which were organised by appointment with appropriate personal safety practices.
"This result shows that even in uncertain times with impediments to a traditional property sale process there are buyers prepared to act on the offer of a quality property," Mr Colvin said.
Once the centre of a major pastoral station, Old Toonallook is believed to have been a Cobb & Co stopping and stabling place in the 1870s and some structures remain from this era.
The 50 square homestead features four bedrooms, two with their own ensuites, high ceilings, large living areas and an underground wine cellar.
