While the house itself may look a bit different from when John Denver and his wife Annie bought it in the 1970s, the Colorado estate still has the views that inspired him to write “Starwood in Aspen.”
The local couple that bought the home in 2016 put the home on the market last month, after doing extensive remodeling, telling the Denver Business Journal that they installed new floors, and replaced the windows and the roof. They took pains to save the fireplaces, stained-glass work, copper sinks and fixtures, and the cabinetry, which was refinished and, in places, repurposed.
Denver purchased the home and expanded it while he lived there.
“Denver built the house during the pinnacle of his fame — it was one of the first structures to be erected in the gated community located between Aspen and Woody Creek,” the Aspen Times said.
His frequent references to the town in interviews and songs is credited for helping turn Aspen into a popular Colorado destination for celebrities and the well-heeled. He died in 1997 when his plane crashed in California’s Monterey Bay.
