More photos below.
UPDATE: Music fans who couldn't quite afford Caribou Ranch's multi-million-dollar price tag got a chance to bid on memorabilia from the legendary studio at an auction at the Denver Design Center. Items went for prices ranging from the hundreds to the hundreds of thousands; a Steinway piano featured on"Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" sold for $100,000.
In July 2013, we reported about Caribou Ranch, a legendary recording studio in Nederland, being put on sale for an asking price of $45 million. A year later, the property has reportedly been sold for a mere $32.5 million -- a bargain!
Buyer Indian Peaks Holdings LLC gets a lot more than a gorgeous 1,600 acre slice of Colorado. There are also memories of the days when a who's who of superstars trekked to the area to cut records -- a roster that includes Elton John, Michael Jackson and more. Look below to see photos from the Mountain Marketing Associates listing interspersed with classic shots from the Caribou Ranch Recording Studio Facebook page.
