MTV to feature Starwood home of Barbi Benton and George Gradow Monday on ‘Extreme Cribs’…Starwood is a gated subdivision on a mesa across from Buttermilk, off McLain Flats Road between Aspen and Woody Creek, and also once was the home of the late John Denver.

ASPEN REAL ESTATE — Starwood resident Barbi Benton, a ubiquitous television presence in the 1970s and early ’80s, will be back in the spotlight next week on the MTV program “Extreme Cribs.” MTV filmed it in the spring over the course of a few days…The house, nicknamed “The Copper Palace” because of its roof, is a 24,000-square-foot home, which sits on 35 acres on Starwood’s west side, was finished in 1995 after six years of planning, design and construction. It’s multitiered, with each area resembling a pod. It features two swimming pools with underwater speakers, a ballroom, a disco, office space, a gym, a dark room, a master bedroom (with a revolving bed) offering views of Mount Sopris and the Roaring Fork Valley, a projection room and much more.
