Former prime minister of Australia Julia Gillard has put her home in Altona, in the south of Melbourne, on the market.
The modest three-bedroom property at 9 Medford Street is expected to sell for $600,000 but senior sales consultant at Jas Stephens Anna Grech did bear in mind "there's a lot of history attached to it,"
Ms Gillard bought the property for $140,000 at the start of her federal government career in 1998. She renovated it in 2008, adding an extension with an extra living room, main bedroom with en-suite and a deck.
The property was put up for sale after Ms Gillard decided she would move to Adelaide to be closer to her mother, sister and niece. She bought a bungalow in the area for $2 million.
She was ousted by Kevin Rudd earlier this year, months before he lost the federal election to current prime minister Tony Abbott.
