The house of rock: Black Sabbath guitarist’s six-bedroom mansion offered for sale at £2.65million

Tony Iommi, the guitarist for Black Sabbath, has listed his estate, replete with a home theater and six acres of property, for sale

However, at £2.65 million, any ardent metal fans looking to snag the pinnacle of celebrity memorabilia may want to reconsider.

The Netherwood, a 109-year-old Edwardian house, also has a custom sound system, cutting-edge security, and stained glass windows.

Iommi said he was thinking of downsizing in 2012 during a well-publicised battle with lymphoma, a type of blood cancer.

The house, in Lapworth, Warwickshire, originally went on sale in September last year, priced at £3million, but after several months on the market Iommi has been forced to slash the asking price by £350,000 in the hopes of a quick sale.

The house has original features such as open fireplaces and stained glass windows, but also features some new rock star additions such as a recording studio and a baby piano.

The home also contains several open fireplaces, alongside more modern touches – such as a bespoke sound system and state-of-the-art security

Black Sabbath are credited with pioneering heavy metal music and had hits including Paranoid and Iron Man

The band released a new album, 13, last year – though Iommi has since said there is no plan for a follow-u

Last year they released their latest album 13, which was critically acclaimed and topped charts around the world, while Iommi was awarded an honorary degree from Coventry University.

Iommi, who was diagnosed with cancer in January 2012, thanked his fans for their support on his official website and stated he expects to finish his treatment this year.

He wrote: ‘We’ve some good things lined up for the coming year, firstly the Grammys, then some dates in the US and Canada, and in the summer a quick trip round Europe.

Estate agents John Shepard, who are handling the sale, say there is space for a plasma TV in almost every room

‘I should also be finishing my regular treatment and I’m hoping to not get so tired, all positive.’

While fans have been eagerly awaiting a follow-up to 13, Iommi has recently said band members are all too busy to think seriously about recording another album.

Butler has also voiced his concerns, adding that any new material might not get the same acclaim as 13, which was the group’s first chart-topper for 43 years.
