Not all Kirribilli residents chop and change with the frequency of our recent prime ministers, and here’s one example.

three-bedroom harbourfront home on Kirribilli Avenue with sweeping views of Sydney Harbour, the Bridge and the Opera House has come onto the market for the first time in 50 years.

Unsurprisingly, the home has quite the history. One of a pair of semi-detached Victorian villas, it was built in 1873, predating the Harbour Bridge’s opening by 59 years.
