SNOWMASS VILLAGE, Colo. (AP) - The 950-acre property that John Denver bought in the late 1970s as headquarters for his Windstar Foundation is being sold.
The property in Old Snowmass is under contract to be sold to a private buyer. The conservancy placed the property on the market in September for $13 million.
The Windstar Land Conservancy was founded in 1996 by the Windstar Foundation and the Rocky Mountain Institute to own and manage land. The institute operates an office on the property for about 20 employees.
According to the Aspen Times, foundation officials want to use the money to help the institute achieve its goal of opening a state-of-the-art green office building in Basalt.
