Mick, 57, bought the property for $1.7million in 1996 and renovated it several times over the years.  

In 2015, Johnny, 59, had the tip of his finger severed during an argument he had with Amber Heard, his partner at the time. 

He said he believed the digit had fallen into the bin but it was instead located beside the bar.
