The multi-award winning Balmain House has been listed.

Balmain House was designed by the current owner, architect Conrad Johnston, from his multi-award winning practice Fox Johnston.

Conrad's practice was named one of Wallpaper magazines' top 20 young architecture practices in the world in 2013.

Bought in 2006, the owners redesigned and rebuilt the property on the 241 sqm site and completed renovations in 2013.

The private family home went on to win multiple awards and featured in Domain's Collectors Edition.

The home has a north-facing garden with views over the harbour and Anzac bridge.

The four bedroom home wraps around the original workers' cottage has a sculpted timber form hovering above the ground which contains the main bedroom, ensuite, library and study.

Low maintenance materials were used by Conrad who also installed a natural ventilation system and hydronic heating which heats and cools at low costs.

The owners described the house as like living in the country, as you see no houses from the ground floor, just trees and skies.

Conrad lives in the house with his wife Katrina and their three small children but has decided to sell as he wants another project.

Peter Gordon of Cobden & Hayson has the listing of 2 Stewart Place with $2.4 million plus hopes.

The property will go to auction February 20.
