The former Miss World Belinda Green and husband Steve Mason have yet to sell their Cowra farm, Glen Echo which was passed in at recent auction.

The online bidding opened at $1 million, with Glen Echo passed in at $1,150,000.

The Meares & Co listed agent Chris Meares advised there was an asking price of $1.3 million for the 50 hectare farm which they bought in 2004. It is listed inconjunction with First National.

The 1896 double brick hillside three bedroom homestead has recently been renovated with new wide verandahs on three sides.

The couple who married three years ago at Nyngan during one of their regular Desert Duel charity car rallies, are now looking to downsize from the farm, located 16km west of Cowra and 300km from Sydney.

Belinda has had a full life, but is always fondly remembered for her pageantry appearances, winning the 1972 Miss World contest at the age of 20.

These days Green, the mother of two daughters from her second marriage, and Steve's three children, prompts them to be increasingly spending time away from the farm, in Sydney and overseas.

Long retired from pageantry and even her subsequent television work, which included being a Beauty And The Beast panelist, Belinda has always been busy with charity work, awarded an Order of Australia for services to the community in 2013.

She's currently studying as a veterinary nurse at Southern Cross Wildlife care centre, an animal hospital at Braidwood, an adjunct to her rescuing, and caring for, injured and orphaned wildlife, through Wildcare.

The paddocks are currently leased to a local farmer.
