John Denver had a love for Colorado that shined through in his music, and now the Aspen mansion he wrote about in his 1971 hit song ‘Starwood In Aspen,’ is up for sale.
The music legend custom built the home in 1972 which cover more than 7,000 square feet and a breathtaking view of the Rockies.
In 1985 the main mansion got remodeled and sported five bedrooms, 5 full and two half bathrooms, three wet bars, a workout room, office space, and numerous other amenities.
The house at 570 Johnson Drive has plenty of intimate spaces for gatherings while the master bedroom features a fireplace and a private door leading to a deck for breathtaking mountain views. Attached to the master bedroom are his and her bathrooms with separate dressing rooms.
The room also faces South to make the most of the sun and solar power. The home has an open floor plan and blends perfectly between living spaces.
Now, the beautiful mansion is up for sale, and if you have the budget to spend $11 million, it could very well be yours.
Denis and Kelly O’Donovan bought the house in December 2017 at a fraction of it's worth for $2.75 million and included a nearby lot with a guest house which served as Denver’s recording studio.
John tragically passed away at the age of 53 after his experimental plane crashed in 2007, but for some, it feels like he never left, mostly due to his identical twin.
The two are not related, but Ted Vigil is the spitting image of John Denver, and he sounds like him as well.
Ted had been nicknamed John Denver 2.0, and if you close your eyes and listen to him sing, you would mistakenly think it was the John Denver.
While favoring rock over country music, Ted worked as a karaoke host and received so many requests to perform John Denver songs that he decided to make it a career. For him, it was a great way to honor the memory of the late music icon, while establishing his career as well.
A week before his fatal plane crash on October 12, 1997, in Monterey Bay, California, John made his last public appearance at the Selena Auditorium in Corpus Christi, Texas, where he sang his hit songs, ‘Amazon’ and ‘Boy From The Country.
May John Denver’s memory lives long through the musical legacy he left behind.
