If you’ve ever wanted to see what Patrick Swayze‘s home looked like, now’s your chance. The late star’s former California estate, known as Ranch Bizarro, is currently listed for $4.5 million. Swayze purchased the home in the 1980s not just for the beautiful ranch-style home but the private property that boasts some incredible views and hiking opportunities.

The San Fernando Valley home has three bedrooms, and five baths, in over 3,500 square feet. There is a beautiful glassed-in atrium with views of the lush property, along with a pool, outdoor patios, a guest cottage with a bathroom, and a flex space that the new owners could turn into a gym or art studio. The possibilities are endless. Swayze previously lived in the home with his wife Lisa Niemi.

The couple loved horses so the estate features an equestrian building on site with 11 horse stalls, two grooming stalls, and a tack room. There is also a riding arena for practice. If you’re an animal lover, several animals are included with the sale of the home: two goats named Cocoa and Caramel and two ducks named Baby and Johnny, a nod to Dirty Dancing, one of Swayze’s most popular films.

The listing shares that the home is “an indelible part of Hollywood history, this estate has numerous walking and hiking opportunities, views of the ridgetop, and private, rustic quality of life a short distance from the best parts of Los Angeles.” Reportedly, Swayze and Niemi lived there from the ’80s until his death in 2009. She later sold the property in 2015 to philanthropist and oil heiress Aileen Getty.
