According to property records, actress, documentary producer, and die-hard enviro-activist Daryl Hannah sold her eco-conscious hippie-chic hideaway in the mountains above Malibu in an off-market deal for $3.6 million to an inscrutable blind trust that real-estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak swears is controlled by — oddly enough — Hannah’s music-legend boyfriend Neil Young. (Young divorced his wife, Pegi Young, in 2014.)
The “Splash” star, who co-starred last year in the Netflix series “Sense8,” purchased the 17.6 acre spread in two separate but contiguous transactions in June 2001 for a total of $1.32 million. The larger of the parcels was once owned by trumpet-blowing musician and record executive Herb Alpert.
Hannah had the property on and off the market between April 2011 and March 2013 with an asking price that started at just under $5 million but was later dropped to $4.25 million. Listing details show two solar-powered residences on the mostly unimproved mountainside property, one a rustic shack clad in corrugated metal, and the other a former hunting cabin that dates back to the 1920s, updated with under-floor heating and an indoor/outdoor bathroom with a Japanese soaking tub.
Our research suggests the lifelong vegetarian also maintains an off-the-grid retreat outside of Telluride, Colo., that includes a small residence that was once a stagecoach stop.
