Wanna buy a Beatle’s house?
December 17, 2010
WOODY CREEK – For a mere $4.5 million, the local vacation home and property of the drummer of arguably the greatest band in rock ‘n’ roll history can be yours.Ex-Beatle Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach have put their three-bedroom Woody Creek cabin, outside of Aspen, on the market. The price also includes a little more than 16 acres of flatland with frontage on the Roaring Fork River.Joshua Saslove of Aspen’s Joshua & Co. said he represented the seller when Starr bought the house 20 years ago. He’s now representing the famous couple in trying to sell what he described as “a boutique ranch on the river.”The Starrs don’t frequent the Aspen area enough to justify keeping the house, Saslove said.”They loved the property,” Saslove said. “It just hasn’t been used much over the years. It’s cute. It’s got a great setting.”He said at the request of the owners, the house will not appear on the Multiple Listing Service. Nor will it be featured on the Joshua & Co. website. The home will only be shown to qualified buyers. Only those who are serious should seek the opportunity to be evaluated.Saslove declined to discuss features of the 3,200-square-foot cabin’s interior or other amenities that will be included with the purchase – again, at the request of the owners. The house was built in 1987.Starr, 70, and Paul McCartney are the two surviving members of the Beatles. Both continue to perform live and record. After the Beatles broke up in 1970, Starr, whose birth name is Richard Starkey, had a few solo hits, including “It Don’t Come Easy,” “Photograph” and “You’re Sixteen.”firstname.lastname@example.org
