When Steve McQueen died in 1980 at age 50 of complications from lung cancer, he left behind a natural hideaway in Santa Paula, Calif.
That secluded 15-acre ranch is now on the market with an asking price of $1.7 million. It features a three-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath Victorian home built in 1892, pond, fruit trees, vegetable plots, and several acres of vineyard.
“People are either lost or really trying to find it when they come here,” said the seller. “It’s just an amazing place. It’s beautiful. It’s not pretty and pristine, but it’s a piece of paradise.”
Also included: a 4,500-square-foot hangar that once housed McQueen’s collection of cars and motorcycles. (Good luck trying to figure out what to do with that. Unless, of course, you share a similar passion. Or need to hide bodies.)
