 Up for sale: Two story, lakefront Florida retreat riddled with bullets.

The suggested starting price: $1 million.

The frame house in rural Ocklawaha, about 60 miles northwest of Orlando, is where FBI agents killed legendary Ma Barker in 1935, Reuters reports.  She was the mother of some  gangsters of the Barker and was considered an accomplice to their crimes.

“It’s like walking into a time capsule in 1935. The fact that it has this extra history is a really interesting cachet,” Mark Arnold, a realtor, told Reuters.

Barker was one of the most notorious gangsters, wanted in the early 1930s for murders, kidnapping and robberies.
