Simone Zimmermann, from the eponymous fashion company, and her husband, Michael Redmond have bought a Palm Beach weekender.

It is the iconic house designed in 1954 by architect Peter Muller for his family.

It had been listed through LJ Hooker agent Peter Robinson by the Martin family who bought on the high rocky ridge for $1.8 million in 2013 from the real estate agent Peter Thane who had paid $265,000 in 1986.

The hilltop home, with views towards Pittwater, has been sensitively modernised to enjoy the comforts of the 21st century.

Its two year refurbishment included the new zinc and glass roof that follows the original form of the then water filled roof by Althouse & Geiger which was inspired by the work of Californian architect Jack Hillmer.

It was marketed as "the seminal mid-century family home of one of Australia's most influential architects".

It is on the AIA Register of Significant Buildings in NSW given Muller's status as an architect from 1952 until retiring aged 80 in 2007. 

The fashion company boss is also upgrading North Bondi abodes to a $5.5 million house after selling nearby for around $4 million through Ray White agent Randall Kemp.
