The clifftop concrete sculpture, Mystere, over looking Pittwater from Bayview Heights, has returned to the market.

The noteworthy four-bedroom house - which would not be out of place in a James Bond movie - was built in the early 1960s to a design by the architect Stan Symonds. 

Symonds is known for his six futurist designs, including the Schuchard House in Seaforth, with this organic modernist design the first of his landmark designs.

The starkly white house is easily spotted from Pittwater but the Ilya Ave neighbours don't get a peek given its set on a 4182 sqm holding.

The residence was initially nicknamed The Egg And I, after it was built for Carl and Irene Jobson.

It has 540 sqm internal space, with Noel Nicholson at LJ Hooker Palm Beach seeking $10 million. There has been an extensive renovation since it was listed with $6 million hopes unsuccessfully in 2009.

Vendors Lloyd and Jane Anglicas bought it from the seminar co-ordinator Ross Marlow with it last trading in 1993 for $925,000.
