COULD a prop­erty pur­chase in her for­mer stomp­ing ground be on the radar for Prime Min­is­ter Ju­lia Gil­lard?

While hit­ting the hus­tings on her quick visit to Ade­laide on Wed­nes­day in the lead-up to the fed­eral elec­tion, Ms Gil­lard ap­par­ently was stopped in her tracks when she walked past the Smal­la­combe Real Es­tate of­fice at Mitcham.

Agent Wil­liam Smal­la­combe says Ms Gil­lard was on the me­dia trail from the Mitcham Square shop­ping cen­tre to the Sun­set Lodge aged care fa­cil­ity at Kingswood when some­thing caught her at­ten­tion.

‘ ‘ While walk­ing past t he of­fice she took par­tic­u­lar no­tice of a beau­ti­ful prop­erty in Mitcham dis­played in the win­dow card,’’ he says.

Mr Smal­la­combe says the prop­erty that caught the PM’s eye was a stately 10-room res­i­dence on Play­ford Rd at Mitcham that fea­tures a sparkling back­yard pool.

‘‘Per­haps an in­vest­ment prop­erty is on the cards,’’ he says.

Ms Gil­lard was raised in the Mitcham area and at­tended Un­ley High School.

AUS­TRALIAN crick­eter Dan Chris­tian is keep­ing his fin­ger on the lo­cal prop­erty mar­ket al­though he is cur­rently tied up with com­mit­ments play­ing in the English county com­pe­ti­tion.

Chris­tian, who plies his trade with the SA Red­backs in the do­mes­tic com­pe­ti­tion, romped on to the in­ter­na­tional cricket scene ear­lier this year with a se­ries of strong Twenty20 per­for­mances at the state level.

Brock Har­courts agent Gareth Evans in­forms Prop­erty Spy that Chris­tian is show­ing in­ter­est in a Nor­wood town­house via his par­ents.

‘‘Ob­vi­ously he’s tied up play­ing cricket in Eng­land so he’s had his par­ents look through the prop­erty,’’ he says.

Chris­tian signed with the Hamp­shire Roy­als in June in the English Twenty20 com­pe­ti­tion.

AN in­vest­ment chance for the com­mu­nity-con­scious has come on to the mar­ket.

Toop & Toop is sell­ing prop­er­ties at 21 and 21A Brank­some Tce, Dover Gar­dens, that come with a guar­an­teed 10-year lease back to the Bedford group.

Buy­ers can make money while sup­port­ing a char­ity – a gen­uine win-win.

The prop­er­ties, which are be­ing sold by Tim Thred­gold and Lew Toop, are open for in­spec­tion to­mor­row from 1.15pm to 1.45pm.

The home at 8 Play­ford Rd, Mitcham, that stopped Prime Min­is­ter Ju­lia Gil­lard in her tracks.
