Miller, who expressed a wish for his ashes to be ­scattered down the cliff in front of his house, had ­previously owned properties in Potts Point, Darlinghurst, Foxground and ­Woolloomooloo.

There's been a designer renovation of the two storey home set on 1,045 sqm where the escarpment meets the Pacific Ocean.

Hidden in bushland, the four bedroom home with direct access to Scarborough Beach dates back to the 1920s. It features a timber fireplace in the living room which has high raked ceilings.

Miller paid $2,225,000 for what was a small timber house back in 2004.
