The Bank of Scotland CIO Patrick Eltridge has sold his designer beach home in Clovelly which was listed with $6 million hopes.

The home of the former Telstra chief investment officer and his wife Julie featured on Grand Designs Australia in 2012.

It was an ambitious own-build using prefab components.

The challenging logistics involved in transporting four 17-tonne modules from Melbourne to Sydney and craning them into place.

They paid $1,635,000 for the old fibro cottage on a whim back in 2005.They didn't begin building until four years later, then within six months the home was built, but not on site.

The home was designed in four modules by architect Pleaser Perkins.

Now set within gardens by Secret Gardens, the challenge was to make it not look prefab, Julie Eldridge advised on the show.

The pods once lifted into position created an uber modern, two storey residence.

Clad in zinc and timber, the customised home has four bedrooms, a home office, suspended fireplace and a wine cellar.

An outdoor terrace and pool on the 600 sqm look out to the ocean.

Belle Property Bondi Junction agent Daniel Gillespie sold the home well before its mid August auction. 

Local whispers suggests it sold to the formerly Coogee based luxury car dealer Steve Nasteski, who was after a stop-gap home having recently sold his apartment in the new Bondi Pacific building to Ginia Rinehart, the daughter of mining magnate Gina Rinehart.
