Jack Nicholson sells aspen home – In the late 70s Jack Nicholson and a pal owned property in Aspen already but a new one took their eye and the historic property was purchased but not for the reasons you may think! That property has now been sold.
Jack Nicholson sells aspen home
Set in the West Aspen hills the historic property was perfect for Jack and record producer pal Lou Adler. With an unusual coach house, wood veranda and of course plenty of space the pair loved the home but maybe not for the reasons a normal person would. See the 1980 purchase was apparently made by these peas in a pod for one important reason…. Basketball, more accurately, watching it, on TV! Apparently the other properties they owned in the area had no TV reception. An issue that isn’t likely an issue anymore!
Put on the historic places list in 1987 the 4800 square foot home was “ built around 1890, is known as the Newberry House, and was occupied by William Shaw, an attorney and later a judge, from 1922 until his death in 1969.” according to the Aspen Daily News who also reported the sale of the home.
The home was put on the market around a year ago at $15 million and has just sold at less for $11 million, probably still a huge profit on the purchase!
If you was in Jack’s position would you have purchased a home for TV reception? He must really love the Lakers!
The home looks like it’s in an amazing spot!
