Aspen, CO – The secluded mansion in Aspen where Rielle Hunter and John Edwards allegedly cuddled is now on the market. The massive and secluded Colorado mansion carries a hefty $19.95 million price tag. The Democratic candidate’s blonde mistress allegedly lodged at the luxury estate during the 2008 presidential campaign, according to Radar Online.
The Rielle Hunter hideaway was owned by major Democratic Party donor, Fred Baron. The wealthy John Edward’s supporter died during the former senator’s bid for the White House. The mansion sits on 3.95 acres and includes eight bathrooms, a gym, sauna, hot tub, indoor swimming pool, and a three-car garage. The estate was built in a French country style by renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern in 1994, according to the Daily Mail.
John Edward’s mistress had plenty of space to whip up a romantic meal in the gourmet kitchen. During the long hours spent alone inside the Aspen mansion, she could have amused herself in the extensive library, on the racquetball court, in the billiards room, or in the observatory gazing at the stars through a powerful telescope. Fred Baron’s Colorado vacation home was reportedly adorned with millions of dollars worth of art, antiques, ornate chandeliers, and expensive rugs.
The home that is rumored to have been an escape for Rielle Hunter and John Edwards encompasses 14,000 square feet. The luxurious mansion, which will likely forever be linked with the political scandal, cost an amazing $1,432 per square foot. If you want to take a tour and soak up the ambiance once enjoyed by the ill-fated pair of lovers, a private viewing must be scheduled with the realtor.
