Ringo Starr Lists Aspen Cabin for $4.5M
The ex-Beatle Starr and his wife, Barbara Bach, bought the 1987-built home in 1991, reported the Wall Street Journal. It has frontage on Roaring Fork River in Woody Creek.
"It is a pretty area of Aspen where several high-profile people have residences and can have privacy and still be close to the city," listing agent Joshua Saslove of Joshua & Co., a Christie's Great Estates affiliate, told AOL Real Estate.
Other notable celebrity residents have included Don Henley of the Eagles, musician John Oates of Hall and
Saslove said the home will not appear in the Multiple Listing Service, "because that's what the owners want." It does not even appear on the agent's website, and only two exterior photos (pictured below) will be publicly released.
"We will only show the home to qualified buyers," Saslove said in a phone interview. To determine a buyers qualification, he said, "We will sit and meet with them. Through this interview process we then know if we have a good feeling that they are seriously looking."
"The home is special because it has so much river frontage. It is a little ranch out by the river," he said.
