Jeweller and sculptor Robert Clerc and wife Samara have listed their Bellevue Hill home after completing its stunning renovation.

The society couple paid $3.75 million for the dated 1960s home when the freestanding, two level property was described as a renovation project during its 2015 marketing.

The Bellevue Hill trophy home had been the long-held home of the late Veronica Strasser, widow of the property developer Sir Paul Strasser, the father of modern property development in Australia.

Now the four-bedroom abode has a marketing campaign that hails it as reminiscent of mid-century mansions in the Hollywood Hills. Indeed it now looks something akin to a Slim Aarons poolside setting.

The resort-style swimming pool is flanked by private alfresco areas that open from the glass-walled living and dining spaces.

There are new floorboards, a state of the art Carrara marble kitchen, as well as a second kitchen, and four designer ensuite bathrooms.

Raine & Horne Double Bay agent Jane Schumann and son Samuel have the listing with $7 million hopes.

Clerc’s previous homes include an 1830s Double Bay cottage sold for $5.54 million. The picturesque Mort Cottage with white ornate gables on Ocean Ave was modernised by Thomas Jacobsen Architects.

Clerc gained international attention when he was commissioned to create a two-tonne steel sculpture of a scarab beetle for singer Tina Turner’s boyfriend, Erwin Bach.
