Their bodies were found inside the multi-million dollar home yesterday morning in Bynya Rd, one of Sydney's most exclusive addresses.

"Although yet to be confirmed by autopsies, we believe the husband has passed away naturally, unfortunately leaving the wife with no means of support", the post on the Northern Beaches LAC page read.

The husband was the carer for his life-long partner, who was blind and had other disabilities, police say, 'Both were aged in their 80s'. Northern Beaches Police Commander Detective Superintendent Dave Darcy said their deaths moved him to make a plea to the community to look out for their neighbours, irrespective of their personal wealth or address.

She has subsequently died due to a lack of care, " Supt Darcy said.

"A fiercely independent elderly couple have been found dead in their home at Palm Beach earlier today", he said.

"So just for 20 minutes, time to put down those iPhones and iPads, and hold back the selfies and making friends with people you don't know, have a real conversation with your elderly neighbour who is living a simple life devoid of all electronic gadgets that contribute little to real community cohesion", local police wrote in a statement made on Facebook.

'If you are concerned about a neighbour. knock on their door or give us a ring.

Neighbours said the couple kept to themselves, although they had been seen walking in the streets in previous years.

A crime scene has been established and will be examined by forensic police.
