Former Melbourne Rebels owner lists mansion

The renovated seven bedroom home could sell for c$20m.

Andrew Cox, the former owner of rugby union team, Melbourne Rebels, is selling Brighton’s landmark Narellan.

The 132 year old Italianate mansion at 3 Moule Avenue – in the suburb’s “Golden Mile” – is being quoted at $18-$19.2 million.

With seven bedrooms and a tower capturing water views, it occupies a 1345 square metre plot with a pool.

Narellan previously traded for $5.71m in 2006 – a discount on the $6.7m paid a year earlier (story continues below).

Former owners include the late TEAC founder, Gavin Muir, and Seek co-creator, Andrew Bassat (the latter who held it just a few months before buying a waterfront home at St Ninians Road, in the suburb).

Abercromby’s Jock Langley and Bill Xian are representing the New Zealand born Mr Cox, who between 2015-2017 owned the Melbourne Rebels franchise – the first time an Australian rugby union team was owned privately.

The listing comes two months after another Brighton mansion, 16 Park Street, traded for an eight figure sum.

Narellan is walking distance to the beach.
