Actor Jack Nicholson sells Colorado residence
Question of the Day
ASPEN, COLO. (AP) - More than three decades after actor Jack Nicholson and a friend bought a historic Victorian home in a Colorado ski town, reportedly so they could get better TV reception, the two have sold the residence for $11 million.
Nicholson and record producer Lou Adler split the cost of the nearly 5,800-square-foot home in Aspen’s West End in 1980. The home was later added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
The Aspen Daily News reports ( http://tinyurl.com/cgywrhu) the sale closed Tuesday, a year after the home was listed for $15 million.
Nicholson and Adler already had homes in Aspen when they bought the residence, according to “Five Easy Decades,” Dennis McDougal’s book about the actor.
But neither home could get TV reception. So they went halves on the old Judge Shaw house, a historical landmark in a section of the mountain town that had better reception, chiefly so they could go there to watch Lakers basketball, McDougal wrote.
Historic documents say the five-bedroom, seven-bath house is on a quarter acre, and has a large wraparound porch and an unusual carriage house.
