The modern Bellevue Hill architectually-designed home that appeared on ABC's Dream Build series in 2013 has been listed for sale.

The 2010 new-build took on the best parts of the 1960s home designed by architect Henry Rossler that sat on the 923 sqm land parcel.

The old house was impractical for owner Felicity Jansen - nicknamed Flip - and her family, so it was demolished to make way for the 'Flipped House'.

With the help of architect Steve Koolloos, Felicity also drew inspiration from the work of her late architect father, who was interested in mid-century Modernism along with the use of its natural products.

This is reflected in the homes used of stone, glass, wood and concrete in the home built by JBC Constructions over around 18 months.

Features like the carved wooden front door are a replica of the one her father designed and made for Felicity's childhood family home. 

She said her new home echoed the design of the home she grew up in.

She paid $5.25 million for the block in 2006.

The four bedroom home won a commendation for Marsh Cashman Koolloos Architects at the 2013 RAIA NSW awards.

It comes with a Cheminees Chazelles double-side, wood-burning fireplace, a home office, a guest retreat and a water-edge pool that falls into the surrounding pond. The garden, designed by Paradisus, took inspiration from by the geometry practiced by the modern Brazilian architecture Oscar Niemeyer.

Alison Coopes at Agency by Alison Coopes is taking offers on the Bulkara Road property with $10 million plus likely interest.
