While he has runs by the dozen to be proud of, former Australia cricketer Ricky Ponting may now take more pride in something equally permanent albeit laden in luxury - a $10 million 1920s Edwardian mansion in Melbourne.

A property both luxurious as well as palatial, this address on St Ninians Road has reportedly been bought by the former skipper, according a report published in The Age quoting industry sources. The report says that the imposing wrought iron gates, seven security cameras, seven bedrooms, billiards room, library, theatre, pool, full-size tennis court and private access to the beach may have impressed Ponting and wife Rianna who have been searching for a residence in the Brighton area - home also to former spinner Shane Warne and actress Elizabeth Hurley.

The house is currently owned by a Jeffrey Hunter and the report says that no confirmation could be obtained from either Ponting  or the property agents.
