Steve McQueen’s Idaho Ranch Is An Outdoorsman’s Paradise [PICS]

Hall and Hall

This ranch, which once belonged to “The King of Cool”, is a dream getaway for sportsmen. 

The Idaho Panhandle is one of the most beautiful places to get away from the bustle of society, so it’s no wonder why Steve McQueen chose it as an escape from Hollywood. His former spread near Sun Valley, the Pioneer Moon Ranch, recently sold for an estimated $7.400,000. It’s nothing short of incredible.

Rolling hills, forests, streams and mountains surround the compound.

The 500-plus acre property lies at the foot of the Pioneer Mountains just 25 miles away from Ketchum and Sun Valley. The ranch sits in a valley that touches the Sawtooth National Forest and Bureau of Land Management land where elk, deer, and moose are plentiful. The East Fork of the Big Wood River, a stream teeming with rainbow trout, flows the length of the property.

The guest annex is almost as nice as the main residence.
Imagine all the cool toys McQueen kept in here.

The compound includes a 1,625 square foot log cabin residence, a 1,500 square foot guest annex, and a 1,728 square foot garage (No surprise that Steve McQueen’s garage is bigger than his house.)

The main residence includes two bedrooms, two baths, high-end kitchen appliances, and all the finished hardwood trappings you’d expect from a multi-million dollar home.





If you’re an outdoorsman, the surrounding landscape is the selling point. Residents and guests have easy access to prime big-game hunting grounds, trout rivers, ATV trails, backcountry skiing and more.


The property can also support cattle herds.
