Former Today host Steve Liebmann and wife Di are downsizing on the lower north shore.
They’ve spent $2,485,000 on a new three bedroom plus study apartment in the Niche block in Cremorne which was got its strata approvals five days before Christmas.

They’ll not be moving too far from their Mosman home, their abode for nearly four decades, which was sold late last year.
It is in the Platino Properties-developed block of 36 luxury apartments.
Downsizing had been on the couple’s minds for some time, but then they’d manage to talk ourselves out of it.
Mosman’s village charm and friendliness one of the reasons they were very reluctant to move out of the suburb.
Their two sons live in Los Angeles and Copenhagen, with Steve and Di seeking a lock and leave bolthole as they regularly travel to see them.
They sold their long-time Federation Mosman home for $3.75 million in a quick 18 days.
The three bedroom home sits in 540 sqm of established grounds.
Steve and Di moved to Mosman in 1979 paying $155,000.

Steve grew up in Cooma in southern New South Wales, where he worked his first job in radio at the local station 2XL.
He moved to Canberra in the early 1960s and then Sydney six years later.
Living in Mosman was convenient when the Today Show was launched in 1982 as the trip to the Channel 9 studios in Willoughby at 3:30am every weekday morning was never more than 10 minutes.
