The longtime Belrose estate of the former Coca Cola Amatil chief executive Dean Wills, has been listed for sale with a record breaking guide.

Wills, who oversaw the drink giant's worth jump from $400 million to $8 billion bought the property with his late wife, artist Margaret Wills, in 1994.

There's an art studio in the home where Wills would paint. She was once commissioned by the Duke of Edinburgh to paint a series of the Queensland outback.

Wills is now asking for offers of $8.8 million through Sydney Country Living agent Brian McMillan.

Set on a private 9,490 sqm, the fullbrick home has six bedrooms, including a lower level master wing with two sitting areas, a fireplace, ensuite, walk in robe and dressing room.

The centrepiece is the 12 car showroom style garage. Wills would have high flyinc coporate and colourful racing identities such as Jack Brabham, Wayne Gardener and Frank Lowy pop in and take a peek at Wills' much publicised collection. He's been known to have bought 15 Ferrari's over the years, his showpiece car a 1994 McLaren F1 coupe, one of only 64 ever made.

In the landscaped grounds is a swimming pool, spa, tennis court and cabana.
