The five-bedroom, eight-bathroom 1920’s Tudor estate was home to the Ramsey family until 1998, when it sold for $650K to a group of investors, according to Zillow.

In 2001, the home’s address was changed and a privacy fence was in installed. It was purchased by the current owners in 2004 for $1.05 million, reports The Denver Post.

Real estate company Sotheby’s International Realty describes the property as “7240 sq. ft. of elegant living areas.” It features a 1,141 sq. ft. penthouse primary suite and “spacious lower level.”

The listing does not mention the home’s notorious history. On the morning of Dec. 26, 1996, John Ramsey found the body of his daughter in the basement. The young beauty pageant contestant had been bludgeoned and strangled.

The case remains one of the country’s most high-profile unsolved crimes. Recently, John Ramsey spoke to Court TV anchor Vinnie Politan about his daughter’s case. Ramsey said he believes the case remains unsolved because of the Boulder Police Department’s refusal of outside help in the beginning of the investigation.
