The Griffin House at Castlecrag, designed by architect Alex Popov, has been listed by the Cooper family.

Inspired by Castlecrag designer Walter Burley Griffin, the 8a Rockley Street house won the 1990 Wilkinson and Robin Boyd architecture awards.

Behind double copper front doors are the living areas, with a bird's-eye maple kitchen, a columned dining area and master bedroom with walk-in dressing room and ensuite. 

There are views over Sailors Bay.  

Mark O'Brien of Richardson & Wrench expects $5 million plus for the property he last sold in 2002 at $3.5 million. Griffin was first traded when bought by art director Karl Von Busse from US-based television commercial producer Peter Cherry in 1993 for $962,500. 

The model suburb Castlecrag was developed during the 1920s by Chicago-born Walter Burley Griffin and his wife Marion Mahony Griffin.
