A SPRAWLING guesthouse which played host to American soldiers during World War II and was most recently run as a luxurious Tablelands getaway has been sold.
Williams Lodge on Cedar St, Yungaburra, went under contract last week with the new owners preferring to remain anonymous.
Sales agent Deborah Godfrey said she understood the property would be used as a family home.
“I don’t know their future plans though,” she said.
“We had good interest and have been negotiating with several parties.
“The new owners will still keep the residence’s title and maintain its long history.
“They have bought the property as is.
“I would thank (former owners) Lynette and Peter Williams for allowing me to market and sell such a magnificent residence.”
The home, with five self-contained bedrooms and a commercial kitchen, was believed to have been built around 1911 and was listed for sale in July last year with a price tag of $1.4 million.
Williams Lodge underwent a $2 million renovation earlier this century after Mr Williams decided to breathe new life into the building.
The residence was reopened by Queensland governor Major General Peter Arnison in 2002 and operated for about a decade before closing.
