JonBenet Ramsey murder house hits the market for $7M
The sprawling Colorado home where JonBenét Ramsey was murdered decades ago has hit the market for nearly $7 million, according to a new listing.
The 6-year-old beauty queen’s body was discovered by her father, John Ramsey, in the basement of the “Ayashi” five-bedroom Boulder home — which sits on a quarter-acre lot, a Zillow ads listing property said on Thursday.
“Great curb appeal with amazing Flatiron views,” touts the ad, which lists the home for $6.95 million. “An epic boulder location, on three lots.”
The brick residence also boasts a “luxurious gourmet kitchen,” wine cellar, and “extensive brick patio,” according to the listing, with no mention of the home’s heartbreaking history.
JonBenet was reported missing from home the morning after Christmas in 1996 by her mother, who found a strange ransom note demanding $118,000 in exchange for the child.
Since then, the girl’s case has become one of America’s most tragic and enduring unsolved true crime mysteries — her family was under suspicion before prosecutors cleared them in 2008.
The Ramseys bought the house in 1991 for $500,000 and sold it to a group of investors in 1998 for $650,000. According to the Denver PostWho first reported the house for sale.
In 2001, the property’s address was changed and large trees and fences were added to deter loosers who were enamored with the case.
The A-frame-style residence was purchased three years later for $1.05 million by its current owners, Tim and Carol Schuller Milner, the daughter of “Hour of Power” televangelist Robert Schuller.
In its current listing, the home is described as having “a timeless appeal in an unbeatable location.”
“Gorgeous and modernized 1920’s Tudor estate in an epic Boulder location, on three lots, great curb appeal with spectacular Flatiron views,” the listing says. “Surrounded by luxury homes, a beautiful walk to Pearl Street shops, restaurants, easy access to CU and Denver.”
Before its week on the market, the 7,240-square-foot home was last listed for sale in 2014 for $2 million.
No one has been charged yet in this matter, which is under investigation.
