Sam Newman’s infamous Pamela Anderson house hits the market

The controversial St Kilda house Sam Newman built featuring Pamela Anderson’s face is on the market with an asking price of between $2.3 million and $2.4 million.

Newman built the property in 2000 and grabbed worldwide headlines when it was revealed the property featured a glass-tiled facade of the former Baywatch star’s face.

It upset many of Newman’s neighbours at the time, with some taking him to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

According to Domain, the home was originally sold by Newman for between $600,000 and $700,0000 in 2002.

The current owners purchased the property in 2016 for $1.55 million and are now looking to downsize.

According to the official listing, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is deceptively spacious and spans three light-filled levels.

The property is individually designed, beautifully finished combining multiple living areas, effortless indoor/outdoor entertaining spaces, stunning lap pool and courtyard spaces with parking just a short stroll from Albert Park Lake, Fitzroy St and the beach.

Oriented to capture the northern sun, the home invites all-year-round entertaining with the living/dining space incorporating a fully-integrated Miele kitchen, flowing through to the private terrace with solar/gas heated lap pool and a leafy outlook.

The master bedroom boasts an ensuite, walk-in-robe and spectacular city and parkland views.

Jellis Craig Port Phillip director Warwick Gardiner said the current owners had considered replacing the controversial facade but decided to keep it.

“They were happy with it because really it’s become a part of Melbourne’s iconic architecture,” Mr Gardiner told Domain.

“Behind the facade is a good house; it’s a good town home or executive residence that’s got a great floor plan. It’s a great entertainers’ place.”
