Celebrity Real Estate: Neil Young, Diane Keaton, Tim Allen
By Laura Vecsey
No More Rocking On the Big Island
Rocker Neil Young has sold his old-school Hawaii home for $20 million. The sale came quickly after the 69-year-old legend listed the oceanfront oasis this past summer for $24.5 million. The Big Island property featured a 5-bedroom main house, two guest cottages, two greenhouses and a pool house.
The sale is one of several big changes in Young’s life following the divorce of his long-time wife, Pegi.
Diane Keaton Ready for a New Project
Ever-popular and always artistically-engaged Diane Keaton has listed her Pacific Palisades house. She bought the property in 2012 for $5.6 million and now the actress, author, photographer, interior designer and architect buff is seeking $6.995 million for the 7,800-square-foot traditional-style abode.
With a string of historic and interesting property makeovers under her belt, including a Bel-Air Spanish Colonial that earned her center stage in “Architectural Digest,” this was a rather pedestrian purchase by the decorated Hollywood star. But with two teenage kids maybe she needed a more “normal” place to carry out the daily routine. But, now this serial flipper is moving on.
Mr. Fixit Not Needed for Tim Allen’s L.A. Getaway
Three years after paying $1.4 million for a rustic-chic mid-century modern off Mulholland Drive, actor Tim Allen has apparently decided he no longer needs the glorified California man cave. The 2,600-square-foot home has been listed for sale for $1.95 million.
The open floor plan allows for plenty of entertainment space, including a kitchen bar area in a sea of Vermont pine floors. The house flows nicely out to full-length decks with spectacular canyon views.
