The former Dalkeith mansion built for the 1980s entrepreneur Alan Bond ranks has returned to the market.

It is being marketed as among Perth's most expensive houses with $50 million plus hopes.

The Watkins Road mansion sits on the Swan River.

Real estate agent Willie Porteous suggests the four-storey home has gained millions in value since it was bought in 2011 following its extensive renovations, including a complete make-over of the outdoor area.

He has declined to give the address or ownership details in the marketing, but the home is such a trophy offering that most of Perth recognised it immediately in the Channel 7 Story.

It has been listed by the former partner of the mining entrepreneur Steve Wyatt, Sue Gibson, who is reportedly planning to move east.

Wyatt now resides at Le Fanu House in Cottesloe, where the local paper advised he'd spent almost $11 million restoring the circa-1893 heritage property, making it Perth’s most expensive home renovation.

Wyatt was in a 27-year relationship with Sue Gibson, before splitting in 2014.

The property last traded for $39 million sale in 2011 when sold by businessman Barry Patterson, who was Sonic Healthcare chairman from 1999 to 2010 and previously held gold mining interests.

It last traded in 1999 for $9.5 million, which was to stand as Perth’s record until 2006.

The seven-bedroom riverfront mansion is set across six titles totalling 6,400 square metres. The house has 2,930sqm of internal living space over four levels, which with the extensive grounds has all the attributes of a luxury hotel, with the ability to transform from a secluded and private retreat into a fully equipped venue for the grandest of functions.

Wyatt’s business associate Chris Ellison set the WA real estate record when he paid $57.5 million for iron ore heiress Angela Bennett's riverfront compound in Mosman Park in 2009.

Wyatt and Ellison set up Crushing Services International, which built and operated ore-crushing plants for mining companies.

Gold mining magnate Ross Atkins bought the property in 1993 from the Bond family trust company, Armoy Pty Ltd, for $7.3 million, selling it six years later to Patterson after extensive renovation.
