The home of the late rock 'n' roll legend Joe Cocker in Crawford, Colorado, has been put up for sale by his wife, Pam, at $7 million.
Set on 243 acres on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains, the 15,873-square-foot mansion was built to the couple’s specifications and had been their home since 1994.
A 33-foot-tall turret, a sweeping staircase and a custom inlaid marble floor medallion make a grand first impression in the foyer of the English Tudor-style manor house.
The large living room or drawing room with a fireplace and cathedral windows was built for entertaining. The formal dining room can seat 18 and is adorned with gold-leafed crown molding, crystal chandeliers, leaded glass accents and a fireplace crowned in black stone and gold leaf.
The library features custom cherry paneling and bookcases. The billiard room contains a wet bar.
The main floor rooms open to a terrace overlooking the lawn, pond and gardens.
The 1,500-square-foot master suite has dual bathrooms, his and her closets, a coffee bar, a stone fireplace, a seating area and a balcony for a total of eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
There are 80 irrigated acres for pastures, as well as forests of aspen, scrub oak and evergreen trees. An acre-sized swimming hole is outfitted with a pier and paddle boat.
The seven-stall barn is equipped with turnouts, a silo and a large outdoor arena. Two greenhouses and a vegetable garden complete the grounds.
The Grammy-winning Cocker, who died in December at 70, gained fame in the early days of rock 'n' roll interpreting the Beatles hit “With a Little Help From My Friends” in his distinctively gravelly voice and performing it at the Woodstock music festival in New York. His 1975 version of Billy Preston’s “You Are So Beautiful” was another of his most enduring reinventions. His duet performance of “Up Where You Belong” with Jennifer Warnes earned them a pop performance Grammy.
The British blues-rock-R&B vocalist also performed scores of television show soundtracks. He released about 30 albums during his lifetime.
Mandy Nadler at Coldwell Banker Devonshire is the listing agent.
