The former federal health minister Sussan Ley has upgraded from North Albury to West Albury.

The Member for Farrer who fought doggedly to hold on to her cabinet portfolio in January has recently settled into her new home with her Gold Coast businessman partner Graham Johnston.

The charming residence, set in her enormous southwest NSW electorate of Farrer, cost $850,000.

It was settled within just 12 days of signing the paperwork. The price well above the $362,000 median house price for the suburb, according to CoreLogic.  

Set on 2100 sqm, her new family home was marketed by Chapman Gould Estate Agents as "epitomising period elegance and beauty while incorporating contemporary luxury and style."

It comes with four bedrooms plus office not far from the Botanic Gardens, the Murray River and the Albury CBD.

Ley was caught up in a summer scandal when details emerged of her so-called off-the-cuff 2015 purchase Main Beach, Gold Coast apartment on Johnston’s Gold Coast and her associated travel expenses.

Ley has now reportedly rented out her former Albury residence as has Johnston done so with his.

Ley, now on a backbench salary, has signalled she will probably sell her old house to fund her new residential mortgage with the local lenders, Hume Bank.
