Patrick White's House Sold

"The Sydney Morning Herald" reports this morning that Patrick White's house has now been sold, for $3 million to an undisclosed buyer. The National Trust, which had hoped to buy the property at auction with funds from the public and various Australian governments, is rather bewildered by it all. "The four White estate beneficiaries - the Art Gallery of NSW, The Smith Family, Aboriginal Education Council, and the National Aboriginal and Islander Skills Development Association - declined to comment."
