The vacant hillside Gerroa tourism development site long owned by the convicted murderer Ron Medich has been quietly sold.

It’s been bought by property ­developer Anthony Elwaw who paid $1.9 million.

He secured the 1.2 hectare Crooked River Road property for $290,000 less than the $2.19 million paid by Medich in 2007.

It was one of the properties that featured in the escalating dispute ­between Medich, his wife, Odetta and his business associate Michael McGurk, on whom Ron Medich ­ordered a hit in 2009.

An Independent Commission Against Corruption investigation found no substance in the denied ­allegations that Medich had boasted he could secure consent for its favourable redevelopment from corrupt planning officials.

McGurk’s widow, Kimberley had a 2009 caveat on its title until just last month.

The now 71-year-old Medich was sentenced in June last year to 27 years in prison for McGurk’s murder.

Medich headed the family ­property company, until his ­imprisonment last year when son Peter took over company ­directorships.

The property, bordering the Gerringong Golf Club, once had a homestead, Beachlands, which burnt down many years ago.

It was Richie Vereker who found the property project for the duo. McGurk envisaged a $20 million value on completion.
