Neil Young's Childhood Home Goes up for Sale in Ontario
Published May 30, 2016While it's widely known that Neil Young lived in both Toronto and Winnipeg at the start of his storied music career, his childhood years were spent in rural Ontario. Now, the home Young grew up in has hit the market.
A real estate listing describes the house as a "stately home situated on 1.75 acres in located in the quaint Village of Omemee," which is located between the cities of Peterborough and Lindsay. The house was owned by the Young family from the 1940s until 1953, and can be had for $299,900.
Trevor Hosier, collector of Neil Young memorabilia and former operator of the now-closed Youngtown Museum, told myKawartha.com that Young's memories of the home and village remain very fond, and hopes a buyer will purchase the home for its relevance to the rock icon.
Young might even be able to purchase the home himself with the newfound licensing money from a certain United States presidential candidate. Either way, it certainly beats taking the house apart piece by piece.
