They’re selling the Melody Ranch!

Gene Autry estate is for sale

(Los Angeles Times) The Gene Autry estate, built in 1949 in Studio City by the cowboy singer-actor, has come on the market at $6.9 million.

Owned by his widow, Jacqueline Autry, the forested property's 3.5-plus acres center on a two-story Spanish-style house of about 8,000 square feet. The main house has pegged hardwood floors, a family room with a wet bar, a library/media room with vintage walnut paneling, a breakfast room, five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

Balconies overlook the acreage, which has winding paths and flower gardens. There is a guesthouse, a swimming pool and an outdoor entertainment area with a fireplace.

The furnishings may be purchased for an additional $200,000.
