Millionaire mining veteran Charlie Bass and wife Sylvia have spent $7.95 million on a hillside home in Applecross just outside of Perth.

The home sits on 1305 square metres on the highest point of the Duncraig Road dress circle, with views over the Swan River.

Built in the 1970s, the home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a swimming pool.

Acton Consolidated Fremantle agent Bob Oliver sold the home.

The Bass's know the road well. They paid $285,000 for a 950 square metre plot in 1993 and built a five bedroom home a year later.

Bass, who co-founded Aquila Resources, sold in 2014 for $1.4 billion.
