John Zeigler, the retired Asia Pacific chairman of the ad agency DDB, and wife Lisa are selling Palmilla, their luxury Toorak home.

The Heyington Place home was commissioned in the 1930s by the establishment Shelmerdine family.

The Zeiglers have undertaken the home's transformation over their near 16 year ownership. They paid $3.4 million back in 2002.

All furnishings and finishes have been exclusively designed or sourced, from the French Oak and travertine flooring to the bespoke wrought iron and glass internal doors.

The six bedroom, five bathroom home sits in private 2,285 square metres of established gardens with a gas heated swimming pool and a tennis court.

The family room features a fireplace wrapped in floor to ceiling sandstone and banks of glass, taking in the garden views.

The basement garaging for over 10 cars doubles up as another entertainment space with a bar.

Kay & Burton South Yarra agent Michael Gibson has a $27 million to $29.5 million guide. 

Zeigler stepped down from DDB in 2015 after spending nearly three decades with the agency.
