Carole King Selling Idaho Ranch for $16M, Discounted From $19M


Singer and songwriter Carole King must be feeling the earth move under her feet, to paraphrase one of her classics. She recently put her 128-acre central Idaho ranch back on the market for $16 million.

That's down from $19 million, in an attempt to signal potential buyers that it's not too late to buy the impressive piece of private park along a national forest near Stanley.

King, who has lived on the ranch since 1981, isn't leaving the state of Idaho completely. She's still keeping a condo in Ketchum, a resort town where she'll probably crash while touring with James Taylor during their "Troubadour Reunion" tour. The two old friends are playing a show on July 12 in nearby Sun Valley, Idaho, at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts.

Taylor owns a house in Washington, Mass., in the Berkshires.
