An Auckland businessman has bought AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd’s Tauranga waterfront mansion as a retirement pad.

The rock star put his six-bedroom Otumoetai home, technically two apartments, on the market for $4.1 million in November.

Selling agent Cameron Macneil of Oliver Road Estate Agents said the sale of 64 Harbour Drive went unconditional on Friday for an amount “in the vicinity” of the asking price.

The buyer was in a band and planned to keep using the ground floor as Rudd had, as a recording studio-cum-man cave.
