Steve McQueen’s “Masculine” Palm Springs Property Lists for $2.5 Million
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Palm Springs independent sales associates John Nelson and Cat Moe have listed Steve McQueen’s “masculine” property at 2203 Southridge Dr. in Palm Springs, California, for $2,500,000. McQueen bought the approximately 4,493-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath estate because of its masculine structure and pristine location in Palm Springs, California.
The home was McQueen’s getaway in the desert, where he often went with his wife, Ali MacGraw, whom, ironically, he met and fell in love with on the set of The Getaway in 1972.
“The home exemplifies pure Mid-Century modern architecture and design at its best,” said Nelson. “Cantilevered over the edge of the mountain with major valley and city light views, this property offers great privacy throughout its lavish grounds.”
Designed by award-winning, Coachella-based architect Hugh Kaptur, the home is an intersection of two glass boxes and framed all in steel, boasting a floating staircase, walls of glass, cypress paneling and a three-stall carport.
After purchasing the home, McQueen hired Santa Monica decorator Peter Shore to design the interior in a masculine manner without a hint of femininity. Shore’s interior design included kongoni skulls, zebra pillows and a gold-plated, presentation-model Winchester rifle. The home has maintained its 1960 luxury design as envisioned by McQueen, minus his personal belongings.
