Former home of John Denver up for sale
An Aspen-area home once owned by the late singer John Denver is up for sale.
The listing, first reported Thursday by the Wall Street Journal, is being handled by Aspen property broker Carol Dopkin, who did not immediately return a phone message Friday.
The estate, which includes a six-bedroom main house and five-bedroom guesthouse, is listed for $10.75 million. The estate was bought in 1999 for $3.68 million.
Both homes, located in the gated community of Starwood off of McLain Flats Road, combine for 9,077 square feet and sit on 7.61 acres of land, according to Dopkin’s listing.
Denver lived in the Starwood home until his death in October 1997, which came after he crashed his experimental aircraft into the Pacific Ocean. He was 53.

There is a lot of pent up energy among hikers and bikers to get into the high country, but snow fields, avalanche debris and high stream crossings are presenting challenges later than usual. Forest rangers with the Aspen-Sopris District provide trail condition reports that are updated each week so hikers and backpackers aren’t caught unaware.
