Pop Goes The News — Canadian musician Neil Young is unloading his sprawling Hawaiian estate for a cool $32 million.
The 69-year-old singer has described the property on the Big Island of Hawaii as “soothing” and “magical.”
Located on a private peninsula at Wai’alea Bay, it boasts 250 metres of ocean front on the Kohala Coast.
“Enjoy the beauty of ocean life by snorkelling in the secluded Kiele Bay on the south side of the home,” reads a description on the listing.
Young’s island getaway has a five-bedroom beach house and a pair of two-bedroom guest cottages. There’s also two greenhouses and a pool house.
“The spacious verandas overlook the ocean and maximize indoor-outdoor living spaces to take full advantage of one of the finest oceanfront properties on the entire island.”
Built in 1989, Young has owned the land since 1997. Property taxes are $71,000 a year.
The property, which is just under one hectare, is dotted with coconut, lemon and mango trees.
Young’s estate — which has been on the market for about a month — is listed at US$24.5 million and is competing for high-end buyers with nearly two dozen other listings over $20 million in Hawaii right now.
The “Heart of Gold” singer also owns a ranch on more than 400 hectares of land in the Santa Cruz Mountains south of San Francisco.
Last summer, Young filed for divorce from his wife Pegi after 36 years of marriage.
