  • Patrick Swayze’s former ranch estate is now being listed for $4.5 million. 
  • Swayze bought the California property in the 1980s.
  • The San Fernando Valley property features plenty of space for animals. 

You can now spend your time on a sprawling, idyllic ranch once owned by actor Patrick Swayze for $4.5 million. 

The rolling hills surrounding Southern California’s San Fernando Valley serve as the backdrop for the quiet Rancho Bizarro, named by the late “Dirty Dancing,” actor.

The picturesque northeast Los Angeles County property has “wonderful amenities, total tranquility, and space for a broad variety of sport and livestock,” per Deasy Penner Podley real estate.

“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,” per the listing.

The property is four-and-a-half acres and sits near the edge of Angeles National Forest.

Originally built in 1948, Swayze bought Rancho Bizarro in the 1980s.

Swayze used the property up until his death in 2009 from pancreatic cancer. 

The compound is made up of a main residence and a tropical-themed guest house.

Swayze was known for his love of horses and owned an Arabian stallion named Tammen.

Horse lovers can also enjoy a clubhouse viewing room that looks out into the riding arena.

The property also comes with its own animals — and plenty of room to add more.
