Ringo Starr Lists Home Near Aspen
December 20, 2010 - Colorado
By Juliet Chung and Candace Jackson from The Wall Street Journal Asia
Ringo Starr and his wife, Barbara, are asking $4.5 million for their three-bedroom vacation home near Aspen, Colo.
The 70-year-old Beatles drummer, who continues to tour with his All Starr Band, bought the home in 1990.
The wood cabin sits on about 16 flat acres in Woody Creek and has frontage on Roaring Fork River.
The roughly 3,200-square-foot cabin was built in 1987 and is surrounded by unused horse paddocks.
"It's like a ranch-ette on the Roaring Fork," says Joshua Saslove of Joshua & Co., a Christie's Great Estates affiliate, who represents the sellers.
He said his clients have been using the home less frequently in the last few years. Hunter S. Thompson and musician Don Henley have had homes in Woody Creek.
