The Ten Most Expensive Homes for Sale in Colorado Right Now

The ten priciest homes for sale in Colorado right now are scenic, spectacular, sprawling and spendy in the extreme. The least expensive of the batch costs $35 million, and the top pick can be yours only if you have more than $50 million at your disposal.

The roster was compiled by Property Shark. The site's Audra Rus notes that "Denver doesn't appear in the top ten.... While Aspen dominates this list with five homes, Colorado’s priciest home is in Meeker and comes with a dizzying price tag of $55 million."

That property, also known as the Seven Lakes Ranch, is currently owned by pro-golfing legend Greg Norman.
