There are many beautiful Big Island homes for sale.

George Zimmer, perhaps best known for his role as spokesperson and CEO of Men’s Warehouse, previously resided on 7.45 acres of land along the Koahla Coast. However, if you look at Big Island homes for sale, you will now find this home listed. This massive oceanside estate would be a great place to live on the Big Island for those who can afford the $35-million price tag. The reason the property is now for sale is due to Zimmer’s recent purchase of Neil Young’s former home, also located along the west side of the Big Island.

One of the Biggest Homes on the Kohala Coast

Any Big Island real estate agent will tell you Zimmer’s massive estate is one of the biggest homes in the area, making it an attractive buy. Located on nearly seven-and-a-half acres of land right along the coast, the home boasts 10,000 square feet of living space designed by Lucky Bennett, a popular Big Island architect. With seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and two powder rooms, there’s plenty of space for everyone, especially if you plan to invite guests to this compound. In addition, the home also contains a media room, wet bar, billiard room and an exercise room, along with a free-form swimming pool located close to the ocean for amazing views, particularly at sunset.

This property can be yours with the help of a Big Island real estate agent.

If you want to live on the Big Island and desire privacy, Zimmer’s home can be the perfect solution. In addition to the size of the home, you will find a massive piece of property made up of 10 separate parcels. With more than 1,000 feet of beach frontage, you will have plenty of space to spread out and soak up the Hawaiian sun. The land is covered with a mixture of mature palm trees and heliotrope trees, offering plenty of shade and privacy from the passersby on the road. There are also several man-made ponds that add to the overall ambiance of the property.

There is an abundance of Big Island homes for sale if you’re interested in living on the Big Island. However, it’s important to work with your Big Island real estate agent to determine which type of property is the best option for your needs and budget. Whether you want a massive estate like Zimmer’s 7.45 acre compound or something smaller, you can find one that will appeal to your budget and what you expect from your new life in Hawaii.
