A luxury waterfront home on Lake Macquarie has hit the market. The home was obviously inspired by architect Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House in Illinois, US.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home, located at Eraring, is ­expected to sell for $2 million.

Situated on more than 9000sqm, the home exudes a sleek luxury resort minimalism feel, with floor-to-ceiling windows, entertaining deck and pool.

The vendors are theatre production designer Mark Thompson and Kerry Crawford, the CEO of arts and disability organisation Accessible Arts.

Their building block was purchased in 1995 for $225,000, with the grounds including an artist studio where Thompson has painted. In 2009, he was an Archibald finalist for his portrait of actor Greta Scacchi.

McGrath Toukley agents Chris Smith and Mitchell Thomas have scheduled the auction for October 17.

The house is located on the ­western shore of Lake Macquarie and north of the town of Morisset.

Smith last month secured a $6 million Eraring sale when Mandalay, the luxury six-bedroom, six bathroom home, with 14-car garage, ­attracted six registered bidders mainly out of Sydney. A Sydney businessman secured it as a weekender.

Mandalay, which sits on 2.7ha on the tip of the peninsula with 481m of waterfront, was offered by Compass Helicopters boss Graeme Thomas who is moving to a nearby acreage.

He had bought the property five years ago for $1.58 million and ­undertaken a comprehensive modernisation of the estate.

The lakeside record had been $4.25 million when set in January.

Eraring is 30 minutes via helicopter to Sydney airport.
