Architect Charles Bruce Dellit's own home, Aleuria at Wahroonga on Sydney's upper north shore, has been listed for sale.

The Wahroonga home is on the market for the first time in 25 years.

It was built in 1928.

Aleuria is most known for having the winning 1929 design of the Hyde Park Anzac Memorial, which is currently undergoing major works.

Aleuria was built during the inter-war Mediterranean movement, with classic Italian renaissance elements.

It has been listed by Chadwicks Real Estate agent Penelope Prior who is quoting a $3.5 million price guide.

Prior said the famous opera singer Dame Nellie Melba tried to buy the four-bedroom estate that sits on 1838 square metres.

It has been owned by Sheelagh and Timothy O’Brien for the past 25 years.

There have only been three owners of the property at 38 Fox Valley Road.
