Rhett May: rocker sells Black Rock pad after more than 2000 days

A 1970s rocker has finally sold his Black Rock home after five campaigns in the past 11 years.

Musician Rhett May sold his 329 Beach Rd pad after a whopping 2469 days on the market, according to CoreLogic.

Marshall White Bayside director Matthew Pillios said he was unable to comment on any details of the sale, including whether it sold within its $5-$5.5 million price guide.

May’s band Lucifer opened for Queen and Ray Charles in the 1970s.

The six-bedroom waterfront mansion was featured in TV series Fat Tony and Co as Tony Mokbel’s house, played by actor Robert Mammone.

It finally sold under the hammer at auction, for an undisclosed price, after the vendors dropped their initial price hopes from a $6-$7 million price guide.

The mansion has a waterfront address.

A sunken lounge room with beach views.

The tumultuous campaign was restarted by a number of agents, including Melbourne Deluxe Property director Paul Pfeiffer, who was convicted of misappropriating clients’ money in 2018.

May also took the sale into his own hands, before handing the listing over to Mr Pillios, who sold it in 26 days.

The agent previously told Property Insiders the quirky home was “spruced up” and given a fresh coat of paint before new campaign photos were taken.

The design was inspired by the May family travels.

“It’s an outstanding house in terms of accommodation and quality, and the opportunity to have two residences on the one block of land is a game changer,” Mr Pillios said.

“I had a very high-profile builder say it was one of the most expensive builds he has ever seen.”

There was plenty of colour inside.

The May family built the unique property in 2003, using inspiration from their travels.

“We wanted to live in a house that made us feel like we were in a holiday resort 365 days of the year,” May told the Herald Sun last year.

A games room was part of the package.

The house features a circular pool with a swim-up bar and lap lane, a rooftop terrace with a spa, home theatre, wine cellar and two-storey guesthouse.

A sunken lounge room with a custom-made Versace carpet, Moroccan-inspired seating and a curved fish tank were other highlights.
