Back in 2016, Variety reported that Hannah had sold the property to a blind trust controlled by Young. According to the report, Hannah “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.”
