TORONTO — Rockabilly icon Ronnie ‘The Hawk’ Hawkins is selling his longtime home — dubbed Hawkstone Manor — for a cool $14.9 million.

The 165-acre property in Ontario’s Kawartha region, about two hours northeast of Toronto, boasts more than 3,600 feet of waterfront on Stoney Lake.

Hawkins’ home for the past four decades has five bedrooms and three bathrooms. It has hosted such famous friends as Gordon Lightfoot (who reportedly wrote “Sundown” there) and Kris Kristofferson.

There is also a barn and guest cottages on the site.

The 78-year-old Juno-winning musician and his wife Wanda are hoping to move into nearby Peterborough.

Hawkins was born in Arkansas but became a permanent resident of Canada in 1964. He recently battled pancreatic cancer.
