Whether it’s for instant access to world-class skiing, because of the countless food, wine, music and film festivals, to breathe in the clean mountain air, for the chance to raise their children in relative anonymity or to merely escape the incessant paparazzi and throngs of tourists and crowds, celebrities are increasingly leaving La-La-Land and Manhattan for the wide open spaces of Colorado. But, that doesn’t mean they’re leaving their big city tastes for luxury behind!
Check out the following 5 amazing celebrity homes in Colorado (and one bonus celeb-worthy estate to be sold at absolute auction with no-reserve on September 27th. Who knows what A-lister will snatch this gem up!):
#1: Tommy Mottola
The famed music executive and former husband to Mariah Carey – recently sold a 15,000 square foot log home in Snowmass Village, CO for nearly $30 million. He and his current wife, Latin superstar Thalia, lived in this beautiful 5-bedroom estate with two guesthouses for just under 7 years.
#2: Jerry Seinfeld
Jerry wasn’t happy with just one celebrity home in Colorado, so he purchased two in tawny Telluride. The larger is just over 12k square feet and the smaller is just over 3k. Both were purchased to be ski and paparazzi getaways to overwinter away from his family estate in The Hamptons.
#3: Ralph Lauren
The iconic American fashion designer and namesake for his world-renowned Polo Ralph Lauren brand – owns a massive ranch in Montauk, Colorado on nearly 16,000 acres and has a full staff at the ready for whenever he or his guests wish to stay on. July is usually the month Lauren spends the most time at his ranch, which has a horse stable, an over 100-year old preserved barn and a full gym.
#4: Kelsey Grammer
Kelsey Grammer of ‘Frasier’ fame has a vacation home in Beaver Creek, Colorado and another formerly small condo in Bachelor Gulch of Avon, CO, which he renovated and expanded into a large home. Neither are terribly large but both are in exclusive areas and offer impeccable access to one of Grammer’s favorite pastimes: skiing.
#5: Kevin Costner
Has a massive estate in pricey Aspen that spans four lots and 164 acres and has a lake and even a guesthouse in addition to the beautiful main home itself. Oddly, this celebrity home in Colorado has stables but no horses – because of the high altitude and its potentially adverse health effects on the steeds. Purchased in 2002 for $20 million, there’s no telling its worth today.
Bonus Celebrity Home In Colorado
Known as Serenity Ridge – 10687 Evans Ridge Road in Parker, CO – a Denver suburb – rests on 70 acres with unobstructed views of the Colorado Front Range and the Rockies. As with some of the celebrity home locations mentioned above, Parker is not plagued by some of the typical tourist trap resort towns like Aspen and Vail, making it a perfect getaway. The multi-million dollar home boasts 50,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space, 11 bedrooms, 2 connecting apartment suites, 4 kitchens, 2 elevators, gym, indoor pool, an entertainment wing with game room, home theater, bowling alley and a separate staff residence. And, because no celebrity home in Colorado is complete without security, this home has a 24/7 camera computer monitoring system. Whether celebrities love to hike and mountain bike or horseback ride and cross-country ski, it’s all just outside their door at Serenity Ridge. Denver is within reach but no too close for comfort and the estate is 20 minutes from Centennial Airport, where many private flights select to arrive and depart from.
