(Newser) – The house of financially challenged actor Stephen Baldwin is going up for auction later this month, the Lower Hudson Journal News reports. The I'm a Celebrity—Get Me Out of Here! star paid $515,000 for the New York state property 12 years ago, but he and wife Kennya have defaulted on paying $824,488 to the bank—not to mention a second mortgage and tens of thousands in possible unpaid taxes.

Baldwin tried to sell the 19th-century home for $3.4 million 3 years ago, when he and Kennya were seeking a property with more land to keep horses.
