Boulder Home of JonBenét Ramsey, Unsold After a Year on the Market

The Boulder, Colorado residence where 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenét Ramsey was tragically found dead in 1996 has failed to find a buyer after being listed for sale for over a year. The property, located at 749 15th St., was initially listed on March 1, 2023, with an asking price of $6.95 million. Despite a significant price drop to $6.24 million seven months later, the home remained unsold. Now, one year after its initial listing, the house has been pulled off the market, marking the sixth unsuccessful attempt to sell the property.

The murder of JonBenét Ramsey, which remains unsolved to this day, captured the nation’s attention. The young beauty queen was discovered dead in the basement of her family home on December 26, 1996. She had been bound and strangled, shocking her community and the entire nation. The discovery of JonBenét’s lifeless body came after her mother, Patsy Ramsey, made a frantic 911 call reporting her daughter missing. Patsy had found a lengthy ransom note, leading her to believe that JonBenét had been kidnapped. However, it was JonBenét’s father, John Ramsey, who found her body in a rarely used room of the basement. The Ramseys promptly moved out of the home following the tragic incident.

The property, built in 1927, has undergone numerous expansions over the years, including a significant top-floor addition by the Ramsey family. With a total area of 7,571 square feet, the three-story residence also features a finished basement. Situated in the upscale University Hill neighborhood of Boulder, the house occupies a quarter acre, consisting of three lots within walking distance of UC Boulder. The property offers privacy from neighboring houses, thanks to towering trees and mature landscaping. A brick and wrought-iron gated fence, added during the Ramseys’ ownership, encircles the property.

The home’s exterior showcases its striking features, including a steep Tudor roofline, intricate gables, and a classic red brick facade. Inside, the living area is adjacent to a sun-drenched solarium, a converted breakfast room now serving as an intimate seating area, and a formal dining space with French doors. The kitchen, connected to the dining room, boasts black cabinets contrasting with a tan brick backsplash, professional-grade stainless steel appliances, and a center island with bar seating and a vegetable washing sink.

The second floor of the house comprises four bedrooms, including JonBenét’s former room, which offers private balcony access. Additionally, a game room with a spacious terrace and a full bathroom provide ample entertainment space. The property’s pièce de résistance is a sprawling 1,141-square-foot “penthouse primary suite” occupying the entire top floor.

The listing for the property was represented by Jeffery Erickson and Ryan McIntosh of LIV Sotheby’s International Real Estate. The Post has reached out to them for comment.

  1. This is absolutely outrageous! How can it be that the house where a precious 6-year-old girl was brutally murdered still stands without justice being served? It’s been over two decades since JonBenét Ramsey’s tragic death, and the fact that the Boulder residence remains unsold is a painful reminder of the unresolved case.

    The lack of interest in purchasing this house is a clear reflection of the deep-rooted horror and sorrow associated with this heinous crime. It’s a stark reminder that justice has not
