ASPEN, Colo.—Actor Jack Nicholson’s iconic Aspen home is on the market for $15 million, according to the Aspen Glenwood MLS (Multiple Listing Service).
The five-bedroom, 5,790-square-foot home in Aspen’s West End is a familiar landmark to many. Located at the corner where Lake Avenue, Smuggler Street, and 1st Street meet, it is painted a deep green with white trim, and its classic Victorian style includes a large veranda and gabled roof.
The home was built in 1895 and sits on a 12,000-square-foot lot overlooking Hallam Lake, according to the MLS. Nicholson, who over the years has been a familiar sight in Aspen, bought the home in 1980 with director and music producer Lou Adler. It was remodeled in 1988, and now includes a screening room.
Nicholson owns another residence just outside of Aspen, and Adler has a large family.
The property was listed on March 4 with broker Tim Mooney of Joshua and Co. The asking price works out to $2,590 per square foot. The Pitkin County assessor valued the property at $6,465,000 in 2011.
The historic home has been known as the Newberry House and the Judge Shaw House, according to Wikipedia. Its longtime owner William Shaw, a water attorney and local judge who occupied the home from 1922 to 1969, assisted Walter Paepcke to acquire local properties when Paepcke was building Aspen into a sport and cultural destination. The home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
The home is unique in that it hasn’t been substantially altered since the Victorian era, and of course, in recent years, because of its movie star owner.
