Photos: Caribou Ranch, legendary Nederland recording studio, on sale for $45 million
UPDATE: Caribou Ranch sold for $32.5 million, a significant drop from its original asking price, to Indian Peaks Holdings LLC. The contents of the legendary studio and ranch later sold at a lively auction at the Denver Design Center.
Caribou Ranch near Nederland, including a recording studio that attracted some of music's biggest stars during the 1970s and beyond, is on sale for $45 million. Yes, that's a big chunk of change, but the buyer will get a lot for his money -- not just 1,600 acres of Colorado beauty, but also a piece of pop-culture history. Look below to see photos from the Mountain Marketing Associates listing interspersed with classic shots of folks from Michael Jackson to Elton John who cut tracks at Caribou, via screen captures from the Caribou Ranch Recording Studio Facebook page.
