AN OPPORTUNITY has arisen for prime minister Julia Gillard to double the size of her humble Altona estate – or at least get an idea of how prices in the area are faring.

A home in Delmont Avenue, and adjacent to Ms Gillard’s back fence, has been listed for sale asking between $550,000 and $600,000.

Ms Gillard's property portfolio also includes a flat in the Canberra suburb of Kingston, which was her ACT base before moving to The Lodge last September.
