Celebrity couple Huffman, Macy sell Basalt home
Actress Felicity Huffman, who grew up in Aspen, and her husband William H. Macy have sold their Basalt home for $3.95 million, property records show.
The deal was recorded Wednesday at the Pitkin County Clerk and Recorder’s Office.
Huffman, 52, attended both Aspen Community School and Aspen High School before taking off to boarding school. The celebrity couple’s marriage license was registered Sept. 3, 1997, in Pitkin County.
The near 5,000-square-foot single-family home, along with a 35-acre parcel in the Sopris Mountain Ranch subdivision, had most recently been listed for $4.25 million. Two-thirds of the property was under Huffman’s name; the remaining one-third was owned by Huffman Macy Family Trust, records show. They acquired the property in April 1997 for $275,000; it was undeveloped at the time.
Buck Jones represented the couple in the sale. He could not be reached for comment Wednesday, and his last day on the job at Coldwell Banker Mason Morse was Tuesday, firm officials said.
The buyer was Nancy A. Gooding of the Denver area.
Huffman’s acting career has included work in stage, film and TV. She won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series — “Desperate Housewives” — in 2005. She also won a Golden Globe in 2005 for Best Actress in the motion-picture “Transamerica,” and was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in that drama as well. She earned a spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012.
Macy too has led a successful career as a thespian, being nominated for multiple awards and currently staring in the Showtime series “Shameless.” While appearing in a handful of TV series and having stage roles in the 1980s and early 1990s, his role as the desperate car salesman in the movie “Fargo” thrust him into the national spotlight and earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
