The former Cardinal Cushing Villa on Western Avenue, whose sale in 1980 sparked an uproar that drew national attention when the waterfront estate was sold to the Unification Church of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, has sold for $5 million to a Gloucester real estate company, according to the Southern Essex District Registry of Deeds.

The property sold for far less than the asking price of $9 million, according to its listing.

According to the deed, the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity, a California nonprofit corporation registered to do business in Massachusetts with an address in New York, sold the 12-acre property at 190 Western Ave. to Lookout Hill LLC of Gloucester. The sale was recorded on Tuesday.

The sale generated $22,800 in excise tax for the state, according to a statement from the Registry of Deeds.

Lookout Hill LLC is managed by J. Gibson Carey of Stillington Drive in Gloucester, according to its certificate of organization on file with the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s Corporations Division.

Stillington Drive sits about a half a mile south of the Western Avenue estate. Attempts to reach Carey by phone to comment on his plans for the property were unsuccessful.
