A Middle Park duplex, part of the estate of late cricket legend Ian William Johnson, has been sold for $6,985,000.

In his 11-year career Johnson achieved a Test-career double, scoring 1,000 runs in Tests (average 18.51) out of a total of 4,905 first-class runs (average 22.92) and taking 109 Test wickets (average 29.19) out of a first-class total of 619 (average 23.30).

Johnson captained the Australian cricket team in 17 Tests and was a member of the legendary 'Invincibles' team that remained undefeated during their tour of England in 1948.

The longtime secretary of the Melbourne Cricket Club died in 1998.

The property, which has been owned by the family for nearly 80 years, occupies 670 square metres at 206 Page Street.

The top residence was added to the single-level home just after WWII in 1945.

The local buyer plans to convert it into one residence.
