- Author purchases Tasmanian mansion
- Understood to be family holiday home
- Home is Rowling's second Tassie buy
This week's Woman's Day reports the stately seven-bedroom house, sprawling grounds and 4km of river frontage is Rowling's second Tasmanian property investment.
The prominent Tasmanian Youl family had owned the estate since it was built in 1839, but seventh-generation owners Andrew and Audrey Youl finally put it on the market at the start of the year.
Confidentiality agreements signed upon sale prevented the couple from speaking to the magazine, but another family member confirmed Rowling was the buyer.
Woman's Day says Rowling already owns a historic Tasmanian property near Bridport, on the state's north coast.
Rest of story.
