Singer-songwriter Neil Young has put his oceanfront estate on the Big Island of Hawaii on the market for $24.5 million.

Set on a craggy peninsula between two bays, the three-acre spread features a Hawaiian-style beach house dating to the 1920s, two two-bedroom guest cottages, two greenhouses and a swimming pool with a pool house.

The Waialea Bay property includes 830 feet of frontage on the Kohala Coast near a world-class surf spot and white sandy beaches.

Verandas that step down to lawn take in the ocean views and provide indoor-outdoor living space. The main house has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and close to 3,000 square feet of living space.

Many species of coconut trees, a terraced vegetable garden and fruit trees such as lemons, papaya, pomelo and mango complete the grounds.

Young, 69, got his start in the '60s with such bands as Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills & Nash. His song "Ohio," written in the aftermath of the Kent State killings during a student and National Guard clash, became a hit for the renamed Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

The Grammy-winning singer and guitar player went on to have a highly successful solo career. He has released 35 studio albums and spent the summer touring.

Carrie Nicholson of Hawaii Life Real Estate Brokers is the listing agent.
