Rudd bails on Canberra property market

johnboy 31 May 2013 8

The Australian has a story on the Rudd family putting their alternate Lodge in Yarralumla onto the market in the lead up to the September election.

Not a bad time to be getting out of the local market perhaps?

They did a complete knock-own-rebuild, which is not cheap in Canberra. This is how it looked when they bought in 2005

That’s a nostalgic (and quite stunning) reminder of how Canberra’s inner suburbs have changed – from log cabin to palazzo, via the Lodge!

There’s a For Sale signs outside the house on Google street view.

Wow the people who bought it in 2005 and sold it to Kev did nicely.

Ah, those were the days……

well, they did have to demolish the fibro relic and pretty much re-build from scratch on that 700k block..

I think I recently read that Therese has (just) slipped out of the BRW Top 200 Rich List, but with estimated assets still running comfortably into nine figures, a loss on the Yarralumla bolt-hole should be manageable.

I can’t imagine why KR would want to stick around for another term (even if it is foreshortened by a double dissolution), but that may be academic – in spite of his apparent personal following, the voters of Griffith may decide that it is time to move on, and things are looking very bad for federal Labor in Queensland.
