The Brighton Golden Mile 1862 trophy mansion property, Bonleigh has been sold, a year after going on the market with an asking price of $6.5 million.

Settlement records show a $6.15 million sale price to the Davies family from Toorak.

The property on Bonleigh Avenue originally had title to the low-water mark, but now comes with bay views.

The property, once used as a boarding house, was renovated by retired banker John Langton-Bunker and his wife, Peta, who have lived in the 150 year old mansion for the past 23 years.

They paid $815,000 in 1992.

It was designed by Alfred L Smith whose design works include Melbourne's Supreme Courts and Library and the Athenaeum Theatre.

The home is believed to have been built for Lawrence Cockburn, the son of Lord Cockburn, solicitor-general of Scotland.

Unique Estates had the offering since last September.
