In 1997, John and Aimee Oates built this five-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath log home just outside Aspen. H ow John Oates came to own Little Woody Creek Ranch is indeed unique. "I had put a contract on a house in town in Aspen. It was right downtown, and it was right around the time that my wife — well, Aimee was actually my girlfriend at the time — we were getting more serious. She grew up on a farm in Illinois, a farm girl from the Midwest, and when she saw the house in town she liked it and all, but she said, 'Boy, I wish we could have chickens.' I knew right then we needed some land," he tells me. You know John Oates. You certainly know his music. anks to record sales of more than 40 million, Billboard named Daryl Hall and John Oates, aka, Hall & Oates, the "most successful duo of the rock era." With No. 1 hits such as "Sara Smile," "Maneater," "Kiss On My List," and "Rich Girl," the Philly-based one-two punch crushed the pop-music hit charts in the '70s and '80s, putting 34 hits on the Billboard 100, including one of my favorites, "Friday Let Me Down," on which John sings lead. e duo received a star on Hollywood's Walk Of Fame in 2016. John and Aimee Oates bid a fond farewell to their Aspen getaway. Te x t b y Edd ie L e e R ider Jr. | P h o t o g ra p h y b y Aubre e D all a s
