John Denver’s Rocky Mountain Home

The legendary high-country troubadour’s compound

LOCATION: Aspen, Colorado

WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT IT: The man who penned the lyrics, “Hey, it’s good to be back home again,” clearly knew a thing or two about laid-back mountain comfort.

LISTING PRICE: (as of August 2014): $10.75 Million

Far out! It’s your chance to live the Rocky Mountain dream, right under the rustic shake roof of the late John Denver. The legendary high-country troubadour’s compound is comprised of a six-bedroom contemporary main house and a five-bedroom guesthouse (once used as a recording studio) linked by a scenic walking path along the waters of Red Mountain Ditch.

Built in the early 1970s by Denver and his first wife, Annie, the home grew over the years to its current size of over 6,000 square feet on 7.61 acres. With groovy, Denver-era details like a wall of stained glass in the master bedroom, this home echoes with period character.

The gorgeous grounds offer a swimming pool and rolling lawns with incredible mountain vistas. And there’s even a charming outdoor fireplace with a curved stone retaining wall that must be the perfect spot for a guitar and a song on a starry mountain night.
