Steve McQueen’s Fixer Upper for Sale

Despite its dilapidated state, Steve McQueen's former Ventura County ranch is up for sale for a very steep $859,000, reports the Los Angeles Times. The now bank-owned property is where "The King of Cool" moved with his third wife, Barbara Minty, in 1979. In fact, the couple got married in the home's living room. The historic ranch has gone majorly downhill from its heyday and according to the public listing is "in need of a new life." We couldn't agree more.

McQueen's former kitchen has been updated and features a plethora of windows, granite countertops and a large center island. With a bit (ok, a lot) of work, this place could really shine.
