Ray White Double Bay’s Gavin Rubinstein and Elliott Placks have scored the prestigious listing of the Levy home at 10 Churchill St.
The six-bedroom home of Mr Levy, who is the chairman of Monash Private Capital and former CEO of Investec Bank, is on a 990 sqm block and has iconic views — even from the bathroom in the master suite.
The couple have rebuilt the home, which is simply huge, with multiple living and dining areas and a pool.

Property records show the former home on the site was bought in Mrs Levy’s name in 1994 for $3.05m and it’s been the family’s home ever since.
They’re now living in an apartment they own in Bondi Beach while they contemplate their downsizer move.
Meanwhile, the Pasternaks’ huge home at 10 The Crescent, Vaucluse, has been listed with D’Leanne Lewis of Laing and Simons Double Bay in conjunction with Michael Pallier of Sotheby’s.
