NAMES IN THE NEWS : Willie Nelson's Spread for Sale


Country western singer Willie Nelson has decided to hang a "for sale" sign on his $3-million, 116-acre ranch in this mountain community west of Denver.

"It's a very nice estate, but very typically Willie. It's not ostentatious; it's more on the homey side," broker Brad Moss of Metro Brokers at Evergreen Inc. said Tuesday.

Nelson is best known for his songs "On the Road Again," "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys" and "You Were Always On My Mind."

The property, which includes a two-story, 4,700-square-foot main residence, has been a favorite hideaway for the singer, but neither he nor his estranged wife, Connie, has visited it for the past several months, he said.

The Nelsons acquired the property in late 1980 for less than $1.5 million.

The main house has nine rooms, Moss said.

"It has lots of character. It's not opulent, but it's big--a big country boy's home," Moss said.
