A second Palm Beach house designed by the internationally acclaimed architect Peter Muller has quietly hit the market. 

It is the redundant weekender of the fashion industry veteran Peter Weiss and his wife Doris.

They have listed their hillside pavilion style architectural gem following their recent purchase on the Pittwater waterfront, a Walter Barda-designed designed home. It seems Peter and Doris have always wanted a sandy west facing weekender on the peninsula so they spent $10 million plus for the home which was built for another rag trader Gordon Smith and his wife, Julianne.

Peter Robinson, of LJ Hooker Palm Beach, has been asked to sell the redundant Bynya Road 1960s Muller designed home that they bought in 2010 for $3.5 million.

It has been owned by a who's who - especially in the 1990s - including ad man John Nankervis and then wife Amanda who bought it from another adman Michael Magnus in 1995 for $500,000. The model agent Peter Chadwick, spotted as dapper as ever at the mid-week launch of the Aladdin musical, paid $680,000 to buy it in 1997 selling it in 2002 at $1.9 million.

The other Muller currently for sale is just two doors away. It is the 1954 family home of the Muller family who owned it for a decade.

The hilltop bushland home, with views towards Pittwater, has just had a two year refurbishment. It has been listed by the Martin family who bought it for $1.8 million in 2013 from the real estate agent Peter Thane who had paid $265,000 in 1986.

It is being marketed by the Modern House agency as 'the seminal mid-century family home of one of Australia's most influential architects."

Muller was an architect in private practice from 1952 until retiring aged 80 in 2007.
