One of the Northern Territory's richest oil and gas magnates Jerry Ren, has listed his huge Warrawee mansion, Pantagruel.

Ren paid a suburb record $11.5 million in 2010 for the massive nine bedroom, 11 bathroom home that spans over 2000 sqm.

Architect Espie Dodds designed the home in the 1980s for oil magnate Pat Burke, drawing inspiration from the colonial era's Elizabeth Bay house.

It first sold incomplete in 1999 for $3 million to entrepreneur Simon and Brenda Tripp.

The home with stately formal lounge and banquet style dining room has a theatre, full sized billiard room, home bar, 3,000 bottle wine cellar and home office.

There's a pool and championship tennis court on the large 6,405 sqm private estate which Luschwitz Real Estate Pymble agent Stephen Sales listed this week.

There are $15 million expectations.

Locals have long referred to it as the Chilton Hilton given its nine bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.
