The asking price of Larry Hagman's California ranch has been slashed by almost half after its original $11 million (£6.8 million) listing failed to attract a buyer.

The Dallas star, who died in November (12), put the sprawling 43-acres estate on the market in 2009, but property realtors have been struggling to sell the house so they have lowered the price.

The Ojai ranch, which boasts nine bedrooms, solar power and a helicopter pad, is now on sale for $6.5 million (£4 million).
