John Denver’s Rocky Mountain hideaway is available to any fan with pockets deep enough.

The five bedroom mansion is a gated community on 570 Johnson Drive, and spans 7,735 square feet, according to The Denver Post. The late folk singer lived in the compound in the 1970s, after his most famous song, “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” hit the billboard charts. After his death in 1997 at age 53 in a plane crash in Monterey Bay, his Colorado property, including the guest house where he famously recorded many of his songs, was purchased by anonymous buyers for $3.68 million.

The views from the 2.6-acre property include the forest, the mountains and are in close proximity to ski slopes.

In 2016, the main house was sold for $2.75 million, before undergoing renovations by its new owners, Aspen couple Denis and Kelly O’Donovan, which included raising the ceilings and installing new floors and windows.

“We salvaged beautiful stained-glass installations, and sinks and handles and faucets and four wood-burning fireplaces,” Kelly O’Donovan told the outlet. [The Denver Post] — David Jeans
