The Harry Seidler-designed house, known as Igloo House, was built for lawyer George Williamson in 1951. It gets its name from the shape of its two-arched garages.

It was also the first Australian house to be built using flat slab construction.

It narrowly escaped the bulldozer in the late 1990s when a whirlwind of attention saw it saved by a heritage inscription on the concrete slabs and arches.

In 2001, Mr Oatley and his wife Tanya bought the property for $ 4.2 million and, a month later, the vacant waterfront block nearby for $ 3.5 million, according to records from CoreLogic.

They hired Harry Seidler to design a massive restoration and extension of the house. He completed the commission before his death in 2006. DA approval was obtained for the project, and although work has started, it has not been completed.

Tim Foote, of Belle Property Mosman, said the property will go to market this week. A guide has not been defined, but it is understood that Mr Oatley will be looking for around $ 20 million.

“Being able to set up your own estate in Sydney Harbor is a rare opportunity,” said Mr. Foote.
