Ricky and Rianna Ponting list Brighton mansion

The renovated Brighton property carries a $14.8-$16 million guide.

Ricky and Rianna Ponting have listed their Brighton family home after upgrading but downsizing to Toorak.

The Pontings paid $9.25 million for 17 St Ninians Road in 2013.

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.

Ricky and Rianna Ponting spent $20.75 million on a Toorak home in March.

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).

Rianna and Ricky Ponting moved from NSW to Victoria in 2013.
The Pontings’ Portsea home cost $3.51 million in late 2019.


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.
