The deceased estate in posh Marrickville in Sydney’s inner-west was posted for sale on Monday, exposing decrepit interiors, neglected furnishings, and abandoned household things.
The four-bedroom property is situated on a 366-square-meter lot in the sought-after neighborhood, which was recently in the headlines as the residence of Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.
Photos illustrate the ‘dilapidated and uninhabitable’ state of the residence, complete with neglected Champagne glasses on top of a piano in the living room, framed portraits on the walls, kitchen equipment, and even an outdated rotary phone.
Images of the residence at 13 Wallace Street, Marrickville, are characterized as “rich in extant character.”

Mr. Vasil stated that, pending council approval, the property has “development potential” and that the local environmental plan provides for a variety of applications.
It can be converted into a bed and breakfast, local stores, a boarding house, or multifamily housing.
He stated, “The character is quite distinctive, and the construction is consistent with the majority of residences in Marrickville.”
It is a sturdy structure that provides excellent outdoor space in both the front and back.
