Sydney home of former PM up for grabs

The opportunity to own a slice of Australian political history has arisen in south western Sydney as the home of a former Prime Minister heads to auction.

The four-bedroom deceased estate at 32 Albert Street in Cabramatta was owned by the late Gough Whitlam who governed Australia from 1972 to 1975 and is scheduled to go to under the hammer on February 20.

It’s the first time the modest residence has been on the market in more than 30 years and Ray White listing agent Manuel Roussakis said that there’ll be no shortage of punters looking to get their hands on the diamond in the rough.

“The home is in obvious need of renovations but the one-time architecturally designed residence presents the perfect opportunity to add value and create the ideal family home,” he says.

Located in a sought-after neighbourhood, the property is far from the finished product – though it does hold immense potential, not forgetting the fact that it’s written into Australian folklore.

“We’ve done quite a lot of research and managed to uncover the ownership timeline,” Manuel says. “The Whitlam family owned the home from 1956 until 1978. Gough owned the home throughout his time as Prime Minister and his dismissal,” he explains.

Former Prime Minister of Australia Gough Whitlam

Gough Whitlam is a mammoth of Australian politics and is known for being dismissed as Australian Prime Minister by the Queen’s representative in Australia at the time, Sir John Kerr, in November 1975.
