The contemporary artistic duo Marc and Gillie Schattner - best known for their bronze and fibreglass dog sculptures - are selling their Bellevue Hill home.

The listing comes just 10 months after they paid $3.9 million.

Gillie and Marc are famous for their contemporary art which is scattered throughout the home as well as public art across the country.

Their recently refurbished Mediteranean-style family home on 956 sqm is surrounded by low maintenance gardens and alfresco terraces. 

Spread over three levels, the home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and a fully fenced pool with teenage retreat.

The price guidance is $6 million to $6.5 million with the duo have been lured by expectations the home will attract strong Chinese interest.

Marc, a former advertising industry executive, and Gillie made a quick profit on their previous Bellevue Hill home. They sold on Arthur Street for $5.15 million having only paid $3.35 million two years earlier in 2013.

The husband and wife team has received critical acclaim with their work featured in major collections all over the world.

Their iconic characters, Rabbitgirl and Dogman, tell their own spectacular love story while celebrating the powerful spiritual relationship that can exist between man and animal.

Their quirky fibreglass pieces of contemporary art typically weigh 30kg with the bronzed sculptures even heavier.

They first met in Hong Kong around 30 years ago, marrying soon after in the foothills of Mount Everest. 

The couple are soon rebuilding their Alexandria studio which has triggered them to hold a clearance auction next month.
