The two-bedroom Wentworth Avenue apartment is located in the “boutique” Aspect complex, very close to Parliament House.

Ms Gillard purchased the property at an auction for $530,000 and used it before moving to The Lodge when she became Prime Minister in 2010.

According to the listing on a property website, the property is luxurious and boasts of an “exceptionally generous” space.

"Attention to detail is evident in every room of this apartment. The floors are a combination of timber and pure wool carpet, and together with subtle neutral colours give the whole apartment a feel of luxury. The kitchen is appointed with superb design and has top quality appliances, gas cook tops and generous stone bench tops.
