Food blogger Stephanie Conley-Buhre and entrepreneur husband Oskar Buhre - who rank among Sydney's most stylish couples - have listed their Darling Point home.

The couple had Luigi Rosselli redesign the home on Eastbourne Road which sits in Will Danger gardens.

In 2008 Stephanie moved from fashion to food, and her food and entertaining blog 'The Hostess', where she shares her favourite recipes and entertaining tips.

Her first book, At Home With The Hostess, is being published in June.

Balancing Queen Anne period grace with contemporary style, the home across four levels has six bedrooms, five bathrooms.

There's also an 800 bottle wine cellar.

A solar heated swimming pool overlooks the level lawn.

Its grand foyer includes a glass ceiling feature and a sculptural Piranesi inspired stair winding and unwinding from the lower living room level to the upper attic.

There's also a quaint black and white marble-floored piano room.

It was the cover story in Belle's last edition given its lively fabric wallpapers, textured carpets, decorative matte wood floors, wall dado panels. Conley’s flair for design has lent the interiors an elegant and cosmopolitan air, and a Lacanche double oven from France takes pride of place in the kitchen.

It has been listed by Alison Copes at Agency by Alison Coopes.

Conely's eponymous fashion label was worn by the likes of Kim Cattrall, Naomi Campbell and Naomi Watts after its 2005 launch with her signature empire-line dresses, high-neck blouses, sailor pants, wool jackets and boleros.

Critics said Conley fused old-style glamour with elegant femininity.

Conley is the daughter of the late Broken Hill-raised aviation pioneer and property investor, John Conley who bought the home in 1977 for $155,000.

Conley often bought superseded aircraft, including the whole of the Ansett DC6B fleet, and then trained pilots.

Her younger husband Oskar Buhre is the CEO of E-Nome, which is developing a software solution to empower consumers with better access to their health records. He also runs his private advisory business Buhre Capital, which had dabbled in an institutional grade bitcoin exchange for spot and futures contracts.

Her sister the DJ Annie Conley was the $13 million buyer of the Tamarama home of pioneering fashion retailer Robbie Ingham and wife Sarah last year.

Conley sold her O'Sullivan Road home, a refurbished 1930s Prof Lesley Wilkinson home in Will Dangar gardens for $5,775,000.
