Neil Young Crosses the Ocean, Sells House of Gold in Hawaii
Trust Neil Young. It's better to burn $4.5 million off the price of your Hawaiian paradise than to fade away. The rocker listed it for $24.5 million last summer, about the time his new album, "The Monsanto Years," dropped. He unloaded it for a cool $20 million, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The acreage sits between two bays. "It's one of the most exceptional properties on the Kohala Coast," said listing agent Carrie Nicholson of Hawai'i Life Real Estate Brokers. "It's right off a well-known surf break and a beautiful, white sand beach."
The property boasts 830 feet of ocean frontage and encompasses a beach house with five bedrooms and four baths, plus two two-bedroom guest cottages, two greenhouses and a pool house.
Snorkel in secluded Kiele Bay on the south side of the home, or enjoy lush views from the estate's spacious verandas.
Many tropical trees grow on the estate, producing lemons, papayas, pomelos, mangoes and a variety of coconuts.
