Ricky Ponting, the book writing retired Australian cricket captain, has finally sold his Sutherland Shire home as he moves to Melbourne's Brighton.

The price was undisclosed but Ponting and wife, Rianna secured $4.275 million plus through Sean Egan of McGrath Estate Agents for their five-bedroom Burraneer Bay house.

It had $4.75 million plus expectations on its initial April private treaty offering.

Overlooking Port Hacking, the tri-level house (pictured below) comes with infinity pool and private jetty, boatshed and pontoon.

The house has been renovated since bought it for $3.8 million in 2006.

The couple are off to the Shandford Estate, a 1920s Edwardian seven-bedroom house on 1890 square metres of land in Brighton, which has a billiard room, library, tennis court and a private laneway to the nearby beach.

Last sold at $2.7 million in 1999, the Brighton house was sold by private treaty through JP Dixon in March at around $10 million.

It was designed by Klingender & Alsop in 1913, described by architectural historian Jon Clare as being a mix of American and British elements in an early and substantial example of the bungalow style, retaining transitional Edwardian elements such as the steeply pitched gabled roofs, and incorporating bungalow style features such as the heavy verandah piers and roughcast rendered finish.

It features in the work by Jon Clare, The post-Federation House in Melbourne, Bungalow and Vernacular Revival styles 1900- 1930.

Meanwhile Shane Warne has yet to secure his desired $15 million in Brighton.

Shane Warne has launched an attack on former teammate Ricky Ponting, saying criticisms Ponting made of current captain Michael Clarke in his recently released autobiography may be a result of "jealousy".
