Seccull House, the modernised, acclaimed Guilford Bell designed home in Brighton has been sold by cardiologists Martin Hiscock and Silvana Marasco.

The couple were only the third owners of the home, having paid $5.75 million in 2013. It had $9 million price expectations through Abercromby's agent Jock Langley.

Seccull House was built in 1972 for William and Elaine Seccull, considered one of Bell's most important works.

The North Road home was renovated by Martin and Silvana with the help of Bell's younger business partner Graham Fisher.

Bell's iconic full-height, uninterrupted glazed windows allow the home to open to the outside.

The sales campaign, set around for a May 11 auction, featured a Slim Aarons-style photo shoot from Goldeneye Media.
