A Sunrise Road, Palm Beach home designed by Gerald Nettleton as his own holiday home, has been listed for sale.

It was last sold for $1,326,000 in 1997 by Netteleton.

Set on 815 square metres, the three bedroom home with solid timber beams and double height ceilings has full length decks on both levels, one featuring an in-ground spa.

The fully self-contained lower level with its own entrance. 

LJ Hooker Palm Beach agents David Edwards and Danielle Ford have the listing. It comes with approval for a third level and additional guest accommodation.

Philanthropists Arvid Petersen, chairman of Petersen Group and former NSW Rugby Union chairman, and wife Karen have their nearby weekender listed.

The two level Sunrise Road homes home had been designed by architect Greg Crone, who sold it new, with architect Tim Moon refurbishing it substantially two years ago. 

It is the same strip where businessman Paul Nankervis and his wife, Rosie sold their getaway for $10.6 million in 2013, Sunrise Road's priciest sale.

Designed by architect Susan Rothwell, the three-level residence featured six bedrooms and six bathrooms.

In 2014, John and Frances Ingham, of the chicken farming and thoroughbred racing family, spent $7.2 million on a three-level hilltop Sunrise Road home designed by architect Simon Parsons.
