The investment banker Rowan Ross and his wife, film producer Annie Bleakley-Ross have listed Claremont, their long-held Darling Point home.

They are expecting more than $10 million.

Merchant Rowan Ross is a chairman of fertility research group Genea (formerly Sydney IVF), having previously established his business reputation at BT, then Macquarie Bank.

It was Annie who co-produced Russell Crowe's debut feature film Blood Oath (aka Prisoners of the Sun).

The couple bought the 1910 plantation-style home in April 1989 for $3.2 million.

Architect Michael Suttor undertook the initial redesign, with a more recent up-grade by Tonkin Zulaikha Greer.

Ken Jacobs, of Christie's International, has the 606 square metre Bennett Avenue offering.

The three-storey home sits on square metres with swimming pool and city views across Rushcutters Bay.

The grand formal lounge and adjoining dining room retain traditional appeal, the latter comfortably seating 10 guests and featuring a bold stone fireplace as its backdrop.
