Nashville star Clare Bowen secures sale of Minnamurra home
US-based Nashville star Clare Bowen has found a buyer for her riverfront Minnamurra home.
The $1,977,500 sale, by Ray White Kiama agent Gail Connellan, came two weeks after the home was pulled from auction.

Securing the property became a race between a local and a Queensland-based buyer.
A recent $1.9 million sale on the riverfront strip had given potential buyers something of a price comparison.
Bowen spent $870,000 on the five-bedroom 1980s family home in 2013.
Her interior designer mother, Kathleen, who runs Kiama’s The Inside Story Design Concepts, renovated the home, which is set on the water and also has three bathrooms on its 555sqm parcel.
“I’d keep it if I was here more,” Bowen, who spends most of her time in the US or travelling with folk musician husband Brandon Robert Young, said. “Brandon and I are fortunate to travel quite a bit but it means we are away a lot.
“There is no where else like it in the world,” Bowen added of the South Coast. “It’s where I sat and dreamt my dreams and got brave enough to follow them.”
Bowen has been in Australia filming, alongside Bryan Brown, the SBS four-part series Hungry Ghosts, which explores three generations of Vietnamese Australian families, all haunted by war.
