On the Market: Joe Cocker’s Colorado Mad Dog Ranch
Location: Crawford, Colorado
What We Love About It: The sheer awesomeness of a Rock ‘n Roll ranch that looks like a pedigreed European estate
Listing Price: $7 million ($7,850,000 with furnishings and equipment)
This stupendous 243-acre spread near Crawford, Colorado infuses an elegant English manor house with an Old West vibe. Dramatically sited in the shadow of the towering, volcanic Needle Rock formation, the 15,873-square-foot, seven-bedroom, 10-bath home was built in 1994 to the specifications of the raspy-voiced music legend and his wife. And since Joe Cocker is a true original, it comes as no surprise that his home is no shrinking violet—it cranks up the volume on style.
Live like the landed gentry–or a beloved rock icon–frolicking amidst the pond and lovely gardens (bordering on miles of BLM lands and West Elk Wilderness), pottering in the two greenhouses, romping with your horses in the seven-stall barn or outdoor riding arena, lounging in your ladder-bedecked library surrounded by magnificent wooden bookcases and polished brass, or enjoy the gothic-arched windows and toasty fireplace-warmed comfort of the living room. Once this regal ranch is yours, you can warble in the music room and gallivant in the grand game room (where Joe loved to host Snooker tournaments)—these halls have seen, and heard, a lot of living in their time.
And in a stately mountain manor like this, you just might be inspired to go a little mad yourself.
