The Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Australia has two official residences.

The Prime Minister's Lodge in Canberra
Built in 1926

Sorry, I couldn't find a good pic.

The second is Kirribilli House, a waterfront property on Sydney Harbour, opposite Circular Quay. Built in 1855

Check out the view!!!!!

The Governor-General of the Commonwealth also has two official residences.

Yarralumla, built in 1927.

Also, Admiralty House, built in the early 1800's, just next to Kirribilli House.

Since someone already posted the picture of the house of the governor of California, here are the pictures of the house of the Mexican president (my second nationality).

This is the actual home of the President, Los Pinos. (Which seems to be a small villa of houses). Still, one of the leading presidential candidates has promised to open the space to the public as he intends to move back the official residence to the city.

Palacio Nacional, which was supposed to be the official residence (initially built by Cortez).

The Diego Rivera murals inside

Here is a pic showing the location of Kirribilli House (the PM) and Admiralty House (the GG). As explained earlier, they have 2 official residences, one in the Nations Capital (Canberra) and one in the nations biggest city (Sydney).

Admiralty House is on the left and Kirribilli House the smaller one on the right.
The North side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is visible at top left.
