Patrick Swayze property in Sylmar encompassed 4.5 acres including equestrian facilities and a swimming pool

A Sylmar spread that late actor Patrick Swayze owned with his wife Lisa Niemi has sold in an off-market deal for $2.9 million, public records show.

Fans may fondly remember the sexy actor-dancer for his standout roles in the '80s films “Dirty Dancing” and “Ghost,” among others. He died six years ago of pancreatic cancer at 57.

The 4.5-acre property in the San Fernando Valley, set near homes on smaller lots, includes a 3,000-square-foot main house, a swimming pool, a horse corral, a hot walker and various outbuildings.

The gable-roofed main house, built in 1948 and updated in 1961, has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two fireplaces, according to tax records.

The property previously changed hands in 1979 for $202,000.

Niemi, also an actress and dancer, and Swayze wed in 1975. They starred together in the films “One Last Dance” (2003) and “Steel Dawn” (1987).
