The little known Harris family have listed the imposing Drummoyne riverfront, Clovelly, a substantial, two storey Federation house with $8 million hopes.

Built of red brick with pebble dash featuring in its chimneys, it was built about 1904 for Stanley Rea, a dentist. 

There have only been two families in ownership since the historic treasure was built with its 22 metre frontage to Drummoyne Bay. 

It goes to June 30 private auction through local agents Warwick Williams and Adrian Sereni.

The sandstone boatshed, originally built as the bathing house for the now demolished Drummoyne House, is an enclosed luxurious swimming pool.

Clovelly has panels of leaded art-nouveau glass windows.

It is one of the few surviving waterfront properties that retains house, setting and garden and waterfront features.

It last sold at $1,525,000 in 1995.
