Meanwhile, the buyer, who wouldn't like to be named, said that he was familiar with the property for several years.
"My family owned a farm located near the Kenmore Hotel and for several years, I used to go past the property. It's a beautiful building and I will try to restore it to how it used to be," the buyer said.
