Catch co-founder lists Brighton mansion

The St Ninians Court property (outlined) carries a $9.1-$10 million guide.

The co-founder of online shopping behemoth Catch of the Day, nowadays just known as Catch, Gabby Leibovich, has listed an investment property on Brighton’s ‘Golden Mile’.

At 8 St Ninians Court, the family home has a $9.1-$10 million guide.

The Brighton home contains five bedrooms, three living areas and an office.

The campaign comes after another in mid-2020 – during the national lockdown – was unsuccessful when price expectations were $10-$11m.

The family of late developer Bruce Terry is selling Teychel on Moule Avenue.

That September, it was also offered for private sale asking $10.5m.

The property is near a manse converted private residence on Glyndon Avenue which Mr Leibovich’s brother and the other co-founder, Hezi, acquired for $19.75m three years ago.

The pair sold the business to Woolworths for $230m in 2019.

Mr Leibovich also co-established Eatnow, which merged with Menulog in 2015.

As well, he created Scoopon – with which he is still a director – and is a major shareholder in travel booking website, Luxury Escapes.

Five star living: agents

Caulfield North based Mr Leibovich paid $4.9m for 8 St Ninians Ct in 2012, immediately utilising it as a rental where it has fetched between $2950-$3300 per week (story continues below).

Gabby Leibovich is Caulfield North based.

Developed in 1963, the modernised home contains five bedrooms, three living areas, an office, theatre and gym with spa and sauna.

There is also a lift connecting all three floors.

The site spreads 807 square metres.

Mr Leibovich is represented by Alex Schiavo and Jamie Driver of Kay & Burton – a different agency to that which ran the 2020 sales campaign; the agents describe the property as five-star living.

The listing comes six months since the Barlow family, one of the owners of the 7-Eleven franchise in Australia, which was put up for sale this week at up to $2 billion, sold a waterfront mansion at 39 Seacombe Grove for a speculated $30m.

Another beachfront home near there, Teychel, controlled by the family of late car dealer turned developer Bruce Terry, is also for sale, via an expressions of interest campaign closing on Wednesday.

On 4578 sqm, its guide is $39.9-$43.89m.

Kay & Burton is again the marketing agency.
