Colorado’s natural beauty is room to millions of full time residents, but is also home to many celebrities and persons of interest. It seems like every celebrity has some form of a mountain chalet in the Centennial State, but one of those celebrities is giving up their Colorado ranch for a cool $6 million dollars.

The log home is located in Woody Creek, Colorado and is approximately between Aspen and Snowmass, Colorado. The estate, known as Woody Creek Ranch, sits on 4.3 acres of mountain woodland and is described by the listing agent as “a perfect example of a gentleman’s ranch.” “The fifth bedroom is set up as a separate but attached caretakers quarters with its own kitchen and entrance,” the listing states. While the property is its own slice of paradise it is not too far from regular services like grocery stores and gas stations in the Woody Creek area. “The ranch is very private yet very close to the Woody Creek Tavern,” the listing states.

The ranch is outfitted with several outbuildings including a loafing shed, a garage made for cars or tractors but the ability to be utilized as a workspace, ad a heated studio to record mountain-inspired tunes. The property is also services by two wells and is fully irrigated and primed for those who want keep horses or other livestock. While the property has served as a retreat it is only a few steps away from being converted into an easy to work property and according to the listing the property has been carefully maintained over the years.
