Actor Steve McQueen’s Former Beachside Malibu Mansion Is Listed for $17 Million

Looking for a Great Escape? Take a look at this stylish beachside Malibu mansion, once owned by the late actor Steve McQueen, that just hit the market for $16.995 million. “This astutely renovated architectural home is perched on a bluff behind gates in the coveted Victoria Point community and harmoniously connects the outdoors and indoors,” said the listing agent, Elizabeth Donovan of Coldwell Banker Realty.

The kitchen and dining area are situated above the living room.

McQueen, who starred in The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, and was Oscar-nominated for his performance in The Sand Pebbles, retreated to the peaceful estate with his wife, fellow actor Ali MacGraw, following the release of his poorly received 1971 film, Le Mans, according to a 2012 biography by Marc Eliot (via The Wall Street Journal). Known as the King of Cool, McQueen was the highest-paid actor in the world at one point. At his Malibu escape, however, the movie star was able to fly under the radar. He and MacGraw would “walk, unrecognized and undisturbed, along the beach together every afternoon,” according to the biography. “Steve liked to call it living in domestic bliss.”

Two of the bedrooms feature a wood accent wall on one end and ocean views on the other.

An air of luxurious relaxation is still present throughout the modern-style estate. Multiple oceanfront decks and a private staircase to the beach are highlights of the property, but the interior is equally well-appointed. Four bedrooms, two of which are primary-sized, and five bathrooms are spread across 4,335 square feet of living space. On the main level, an airy open-plan kitchen, dining, and living room area complete with a fireplace connect to a sprawling ocean view deck via a disappearing glass wall. The oversized primary suites on the upper and lower levels enjoy wood-paneled statement walls and amenities that include a fireplace, luxe spa-like bathrooms, and sprawling decks that match the one on the main floor.
