Ricky and Rianna Ponting have listed their Brighton family home after upgrading but downsizing to Toorak.
The pair can expect more than $15 million for Shandford, at 17 St Ninians Road, on the south west corner of Shandford Avenue, in the suburb’s revered Golden Mile.
The c1920s Edwardian rises three levels, with seven bedrooms, three living areas, two sunrooms and a 16-seat theatre; the former Australian Men’s Cricket Team captain and his wife have renovated.
On 1920 square metres, the block contains a pool and tennis court.
A private laneway across the road, providing direct beach access, is also on title.
The couple will relocate to a renovated 1930s mansion on 1422 sqm in Toorak’s tree-lined Linlithgow, acquired two months ago from packaging executive Alex Commins and his wife, EY partner, Nicola, for $20.75m.
The Pontings will retain an investment property in the suburb, purchased in 2020, and a modern holiday house, near the Portsea Hotel, which cost $3.51m the year earlier (story continues below).
The Pontings paid $9.25m for Shandford, relocating to Victoria from a contemporary five bedroom waterfront at Burraneer Bay, in Sydney’s Sutherland region.
The seller was Jeffrey Hunter, owner of toy and sporting good importer, Hunter Products.
Forbes’ Michael Gibson and Robert Fletcher have the latest listing. The same agents sold the pair the Toorak home.
