Sushi Sushi founder lists Melbourne home

The Grosvenor Court home contains five bedrooms, two studies and a gym.

Sushi Sushi founder Anna Kasman has listed her circa-800 square metre – or 85 square – Toorak family home.

The double storey neo Georgian – it was developed in 1985 – on 1636 square metres at 5 Grosvenor Court carries a $15-$16.5 million guide.

At that value it would more than double the ($7.5m) street price record set 10 years ago for a c1936 Arts & Crafts mansion on 1972 sqm at #11 which, like #5 has a tennis court.

Marshall White’s Marcus Chiminello and Jack Nicol are the agents.

Ms Kasman established Sushi Sushi in Box Hill 25 years ago; there are now over 150 outlets, four warehouses and distribution centres in Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne.

In 2019, the executive sold the majority interest to Odyssey Private Equity – reportedly valuing the business at between $100m-$150m – and now runs Sushi Jiro, with c20 venues.

Near the corner of Toorak and Glenferrie roads, Grosvenor Ct, with 10 dwellings, was carved out of an estate once owned by theatre executive Sir George Tallis.

Ms Kasman paid $9.5m for #5 in 2008 (story continues below).

The holding includes a circular driveway, vegetable garden and swimming pool.

The home contains five bedrooms, a gym which could dub as a sixth, two dens, a rumpus room, and formal and informal lounge and dining rooms.

On Saturday, we reported ex-Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou listed his Tuscan themed townhouse in the suburb, with c$3.3m price hopes.

Kay & Burton’s Darren Lewenberg, Ross Savas and Grant Samuel have that listing.

In the first quarter of the year meanwhile, former Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting and his wife, Rianna, outlaid 20.75m for a renovated 1930s mansion in Toorak’s tree-lined Linlithgow Road.

Across the road from there, REA Group chief executive Owen Wilson also offered his family home, at #25, with c$16-$17m price hopes.

Mr Chiminello with colleague Nicole French are those agents.
