Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman is closing a giant chapter in his life.
The sprawling home that Chapman and his late wife Beth Chapman bought in 2009 for just $750,000 has found a buyer, The Post has learned.
Initially listed on the market in October for $1.69 million, a pending offer was pending in November after a $95,000 price cut. The house is anticipated to shut on Monday with an asking price of $1.59 million.
The move got here a 12 months after Chapman got his job married to Francie Franewhom he met six months after Beth’s death in June 2019 and who also lost her spouse, husband Bob Frane, in 2018.
“I like Colorado – it is going to all the time be special to me and Francie,” Chapman, 69, told The Post. “We have moved to the sunny state of Florida and are having fun with warmer weather. Aloha.
Consisting of six bedrooms and five bathrooms, the property sits on over 9 acres of land in Castle Rock.
Covering 6,200 square feet within the Keene Ranch community, it features a remodeled kitchen with granite countertops, a stunning room with floor-to-ceiling windows, a hearth, and exposed beamed ceilings.
Listed is “an expansive deck for spectacular Colorado sunsets” with panoramic mountain views.
The main bedroom has double wardrobes, a hearth, vaulted ceilings and a terrace. The bathroom has a sink and a hearth.
Other facilities include a bar and an entertainment room with a cinema.
This is similar house that frequently appeared on Chapman’s reality shows “Dog the Bounty Hunter”, “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt” and “Dog’s Most Wanted”. It was also the identical house where he had lived ten years earlier along with his late wife she lost and fighting throat cancer at 51.
Karen Beville and Scott Beville of Coldwell Banker Realty led the auction.
“I used to be so impressed with my first meeting with Dog: such a sweet, handsome man, able to do whatever was needed in the ultimate days of getting the ranch ready on the market,” Karen told The Post. “The dog has been a unbelievable help mowing the ranch’s front acres and helping Francie with the exertions of sorting and moving.”
“The day before the property was listed within the MLS, Dog suggested we pray,” she added. “As the 4 of us, Dog and Francie, my husband Mick and I, held hands in a small circle, Dog led us in prayer that this home could be found for a family who would actually need and love such a house. And that prayer was soon answered.”
Meanwhile, Chapman revealed that while in Florida, he’ll deal with his plans to fight the growing sex trafficking epidemic, with the launch of The DOG Foundation.
He told The Post he could be helping victims of human trafficking and abuse.
