Former premier Jay Weatherill admits mixed feelings about listing the family’s Alberton home of two decades.

He's leaving the Queen Street property – and the state he led for six years prior to the 2018 election – for a job in Perth with Andrew Forrest’s Minderoo Foundation.

Mr Weatherill will take over as the chief executive of the foundation’s Thrive by Five initiative, which focuses on early childhood development across the country. 

The 55-year-old, wife Melissa and their two teenage daughters, Lucinda and Alice, are heading west later this month.

Their renovated sandstone villa is going to auction on Saturday, February 1.

The 487 sqm property is being sold by Nick Psarros and Nathaniel Kennerdale of Ray White Port Adelaide.

The three-bedroom residence comes with an office.

It features polished timber floorboards, feature fireplaces and high ornate ceilings with a modern extension.

The renovations were carried out about 10 years ago.

The Weatherills bought the property in May 2000, having been renting a home around the corner.

“It’s always had a great community feel to the place, with people looking out for each other,” he told The Adelaide Advertiser.
