BYRON Bay's old ambulance station on Jonson St has sold for over $2 million to a South Australian based buyer, agent Glen Irwin from LJ Hooker has revealed.

It is the first time the station has been in private hands since its construction in 1953 as a base for the town's ambulance officers which are now operating from a new building on Ewingsdale Rd.

The 367 sq m building, which also features a three-bedroom residence upstairs, was passed in at auction in June.
