Steve McQueen's amazing Idaho ranch can be yours for $7.4M
Legendary Hollywood actor and motorcycle and race car enthusiast Steve McQueen's Pioneer Moon Ranch is for sale. Located on more than 500 acres just outside Idaho's Sun Valley Resort, the sprawling $7.4-million-dollar property comes with a large two-story log home and – here's the exciting part – an even larger log annex with an adjoining 1,728-square-foot garage. Let's repeat that part again in case you didn't catch it: a 1,728-square-foot garage - that's bigger than many people's houses – we're salivating just thinking about the number of cars we could fit in that behemoth.
While McQueen himself wouldn't have used the gargantuan garage – he died in 1980 and it was constructed much later in 2010 – he certainly would have had quite a collection to store there. At the time of his death, McQueen had collected more than 100 motorcycles. He also owned many exotic sports cars, including a 1970 Porsche 911S, 1956 Jaguar XKSS, and 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso.
Much more than simply a car enthusiast, McQueen considered being a professional race car driver and also competed in off-road motorcycle racing. In fact, he performed many of his own driving stunts in his movies, with two of the most notable being the car chases in Bullitt and racing sequences in Le Mans. Check out the photos of McQueen's larger-than-life pad and let us know what you would put in that drool-worthy garage.
