329 Beach Rd, Black Rock has hit the market for the fifth time in 10 years.

A 1970s rocker is attempting to sell his impressive Black Rock mansion for the fifth time in a decade.

Musician Rhett May, whose “garage band” Lucifer opened for Queen and Ray Charles, is this time leaving the sale to the experts after attempting to sell the home privately last year.

The beachfront property, which featured as Tony Mokbel’s house in the TV series Fat Tony & Co, was listed through Marshall White Bayside with a $5-$5.5 million price guide.

CoreLogic records show there had been four previous listings for the six-bedroom, six-bathroom house at 329 Beach Rd since 2009. One campaign lasted as long as 1187 days.

May’s price hopes have fluctuated across the numerous listings, dropping from an initial $6-$7 million price guide.

The musician took the listing into his own hands last year after his agent, Melbourne Deluxe Property director Paul Pfeiffer, was convicted in the County Court in 2018 of misappropriating clients’ money.

The property has some unique features …

… and some killer views!

This time May enlisted Marshall White agent Matthew Pillios to sell the freshly painted and “spruced up” property.

“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.

“The market is as good as I have seen in the last 18 months and this is a rare opportunity to be in one of the best locations in Melbourne.”

The house was built in 2003.

May’s price hopes are about $2 million lower than what he first listed it for in 2009.

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.

“We’ve also got the best position, with some of the best bay views in Melbourne.”

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 was another highlight.

The house is set to head under the hammer on March 7.
