The "upscale" adverb "weither" is listed in the Duden:


Duden information:
from far away

the marble for the temple had to be fetched from far away

(End of the Duden information)

Since the meaning of this "upscale" adverb "of far away ”, this“ upscale ”adverb probably doesn't fit into your sentence, where the word“ far away ”is already in front of the word“ far away ”.of" stands. I would therefore rather write “far away” in your sentence separately.



However, if you read through the examples in dwds, I don't know whether my reasoning is conclusive:
