Brindley Park in Merriwa, one of the upper Hunter Valley's most impressive rural estates, has been sold by the pioneer discount share broker Greg Moore and wife Libby six years after it was listed.

Headed by Michael Wang, Australia Aulong Auniu WA, a subsidiary of the Dashang Group, paid $11 million plus. It takes their recent agricultural acquistions to $82 million. They will ship the farm produce back to their 300 stores in China.

It comes with a neo-Palladian eight bedroom main residence complete with sandstone columns, tessellated granite flooring, five-metre ceilings, slate roof, Teak panelled entry and hand-carved marble fireplaces.

The more humble heritage, farm cottages date back to the Bettington family including a 110-stand shearing shed, which in 1888, its peak year, had 58,000 sheep shorn.

AAAW also own the nearby 30,000ha Glenrock Station and the 3500 ha Wootton.
