Steve McQueen's House and Car Collection

Steve McQueen's House and Car Collection

This ad is marked as Sold



This was a Bank Owned REO Celebrity Property until the new buyers closed escrow on 5/25/2012. The selling price was $660,000

Over 2 years ago the original asking price was $1,950,000 and that was before the house was foreclosed on and before it became an REO property.

The condition of the property has seriously deteriorated over the years and needs a lot of work or is a complete tear down and rebuild situation. The price was reduced dramatically to match the current market conditions and the condition of the property.

Due to that low price that the REO bank set of only $724,900 the place finally sold quickly. Part of the reason is that it's not a short sale anymore.

Call me at 877-781-5128 because I'm the only agent that can be your buyer rep. on deals that interest you .. according to me. Seriously, if you're interested then let's talk.

Buy a Piece of Car Collecting and Hollywood History!

A Santa Paula ranch once owned by actor Steve McQueen and his third wife, Barbara Minty, has come on the market and it can be yours!

Built in 1892, the house has period detailing and antique stained glass windows, but has been updated with commercial-grade kitchen fixtures and appliances.

The ranch includes 3 acres of Syrah vineyards, fruit trees, a 3-acre equestrian facility and the airplane hangar where McQueen kept his prestigious car collection.
The "King of Cool" and Ms. Minty moved into the Santa Paula, California, home in 1979 and married in the living room of the Victorian home in 1980.

The "King of Cool" apparently found a measure of peace in Santa Paula, Calif., where he could stash his collection of cars, planes, and motorcycles, and the locals didn't seem to think it was such a big deal that a legendary movie star was living in their midst.

Steve McQueen had largely turned away from Hollywood when he settled in the town, about 75 miles northwest of Los Angeles, in 1979. Drawn there, according to biographers, by the town's reputation as the vintage-plane capital of America, the tough-boy icon purchased a nearby 15.33-acre ranch with an 1892 cottage and a 4,200-square-foot hangar that he stuffed with dirt bikes, Indian motorcycles and rare sports cars.

McQueen, who became one of the world's highest-paid actors in the 1960s, honed an image of toughness in such noted films as "Bullitt," "The Great Escape," and "The Cincinnati Kid."

But he started turning down most roles in the 1970s, focusing instead on auto and motorcycle racing and traveling the back roads of the West. He purchased two vintage Stearman biplanes and persuaded a Santa Paula local to become his flight instructor.
