LATE ROCK LEGEND JOE COCKER'S COLORADO MANSION LISTED
The former home of rock legend Joe Cocker, widely known for hits such as ‘You are so beautiful’ and ‘With a little help from my friends’, has just been listed with Sotheby’s International Realty..
This home was artfully created by Joe Cocker himself and designed by award-winning architect John D. Kelley, who helped Joe to achieve his vision by harmoniously introducing old-world style to modern mountain living.
Undoubtedly the most luxurious retreat in the state of Colorado, the home itself is absolute perfection. Nestled in the heart of the North Fork Valley in Southwestern Colorado, Mad Dog Ranch is a true masterpiece artfully created by its previous owner and late rock legend Joe Cocker. An inspired 15,873 square-foot English estate on 316 acres, the home enjoys unmatched peace and privacy as well as stunning vistas of Needle Rock, Landsend Peak, and the surrounding West Elk Mountains from its own private box canyon paradise.
Across its seven spacious guest suites, ten full bathrooms, and four powder rooms, the entire mansion sits at the height of sophistication and luxury, highlighted by an extensive art collection and Cocker's beloved, historic snooker table that once belonged to King Edward VII. Alpenglow sunsets across the private mountain vistas are made even more spectacular by the expansive patios and balconies from which to enjoy them.
These outdoor living spaces overlook all 316 acres and three lots that comprise this one-of-a-kind alpine retreat. Storied gardens, 60 acres of irrigated fields, Cottonwood Creek, horse stables, and two amusement park-sized water slides adorn the property, while lush National Forest surrounds it. The opportunities for exploration, hunting, fishing, hiking, or biking are endless - it is easy to see why Joe spent time residing here until his death in 2014.
The property is listed with Dan Dockray of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty for an asking price of $18,000,000
