The actor owns a home that can take your breath away. Costner’s estate is located in downtown Aspen, which is considered one of the richest zip codes in the United States. Secluded and buried in the greenery, the actor’s property is called the “Aspen Independence Ranch”. This place would be great for filming sci-fi movies. And here’s why.

The land on which the ranch sits is 160 acres. It’s a relaxed and serene setting where the “Bodyguard” star and his family live: his wife Christine Baumgartner and their three children, Kayden, Hayes and Grace.

Entrance to the property is gated by a modest, front gate, which is under guard. A private road, lined with golden birch trees, leads to the property.

The Roaring Fork River runs through the grounds. Along the banks of the river are majestic pine trees, which create a special mysterious atmosphere. The grounds are occupied by three independently-owned houses – the main house, the lake house and the river house. All the rooms can easily accommodate up to 34 people.

Of particular note is a hidden door located in one of the bedrooms at the foot of the bed. Hidden beneath the boards is a staircase that leads up to the jacuzzi with gorgeous views of the river and cliffs.

There is a small button on the stonework of the Jacuzzi that can be pressed to start the waterfall. Brick walls, dark oak ceilings and wooden columns create a cabin effect.

A white fireplace, located in the living room, surrounds sofas in gray. According to Amy Mottier, a Coldwell banker and close family friend, Kevin Costner’s home is filled with an air of coziness and domestic warmth.

Although the other two homes on the ranch are inferior in size to the main house, they are still just as stunning. The lake house can accommodate about 12 people, and the river house 6.

By that time, the actor had already separated from Cindy and was in search of a new love. Kevin and Christina began to go out. Their relationship lasted four years. However, in 2003, the couple broke up. The reason for the breakup was a disagreement about their common children.

Baumgartner wanted to experience the happiness of motherhood, and it was enough for Costner, since he was already a father of four children. By the way, three children were given to the actor by his first wife Cindy, and another child was born in the actor’s relationship with his girlfriend Bridget Rooney.

In 2018, during an interview with Closer Weekly, Costner admitted that he was afraid to marry Christina because he was worried that he would not be a good father for the child that his chosen one wanted so much.

We should say that the parting of the lovers did not last long. According to Costner, he woke up one day and realized that he could lose a good woman because of his fears.

They reunited again and almost immediately played a wedding. The marriage took place in 2004 at the actor’s estate in Aspen. Kevin, as if playing a scene from a sci-fi movie, arrived at the wedding venue in a horse-drawn carriage. And the bride was taken to the ceremony site by a vintage green pickup truck. After saying their vows by the river, the couple celebrated with invited guests.

The popular actor admits that he enjoys playing heroes in movies. But even more he loves those moments when he comes home and becomes a father to his beloved children.
