Morella, the unliveable late 1930s Mosman timewarp mansion that has sat idle for 15 years, has been sold for $6.6 million to Edward Wei.

There were two competing bidders. It sold after the top bidder raised his $6.4 million bid and the vendor reduced their reserve. 

More than $7.3 million was being sought through LJ Hooker agent Geoff Smith under instructions of Chew Hong Ho, the former carer who was named in Anthony Parer's obituary as his "loving partner." 

Anthony's distraught younger sister, Mariana, who has been intent on contesting the estate which includes Dungog cattle farms, came from Canada to attend the auction.
