The ranch owned by late Hollywood producer and agent Ray Stark has been put on the market for $15 million (GBP8.3 million).

The FUNNY GIRL producer passed away in January (04) in his Los Angeles home after battling with illness for the past few years.

His 256-acre (103 hectare) ranch - which is surrounded by thousands of acres of cattle ranches, vineyards and wineries - in California's Santa Ynez Valley became his retreat in the early 1970s.

The estate's main residence has three bedrooms and three bathrooms plus a master suite, formal dining room and living rooms, a kitchen with a pantry and staff quarters.

The features also include a pool and a tennis court, guest and pool houses, hay barns and two horse barns.
