Have you ever wondered where rock 'n' roll legends go when they are no longer in the public spotlight, or they want to escape it? Canadian singer/songwriter/musician, Neil Young, has been calling the Big Island of Hawaii his oasis away from celebrity. When you see his house, it will not be hard to understand why.
It's Hawaii, so you know the land is going to be gorgeous. The five-bedroom, four-bathroom house sits on 2+ acres of prime real estate. Located on a private peninsula between two bays, the location is beautiful beyond words, and provides some absolutely breathtaking views.
It's perfect for an artist in need of inspiration, and it can be yours for the small price of $24.5 million.
If privacy is a concern, you don't have to worry about people finding you by 'accident.' With water on three sides of the house and lush greenery all around it, no one will find you here without an invitation and very good directions.
Looking to snorkel in some the clearest water in the world? You are in luck. All you have to do is head out into your backyard. where you have 830 feet of prime oceanfront property. It is not hard to make your way to some fantastic surfing spots, either.
Of course if you just want to take a relaxing dip in your own pool you can. Who wouldn't want to float around this pool in an inter-tube?
Should you want to entertain you will have more than enough space outside for guests to sit and enjoy the beautiful Hawaii weather and scenery.
If you like your guests enough to invite them over, but need some space in order to make sure you don't get tired of them, they can stay in one of the two guest cottages on the property.
Along with a pair of greenhouses, the property has all sorts of trees growing on it, including many varieties of coconut trees along with mango, papaya, pomelo and lemon trees. Accordingly, it has been recognized by the Honolulu Garden Club.
Why would he sell such a place? He's worth $65 million, so he is probably not hurting for money, but you don't obtain that kind of wealth without recognizing a good opportunity when it presents itself. A lot of California tech billionaires are looking for property in Hawaii, and if anyone has money to spend, it is these guys. So why not take it from them?
Besides, if he really wants to get away to a beautiful island spot, he can always stay at the $4.25 million place in Malibu owned by his girlfriend, actress Daryl Hannah.
