House fit for McQueen

18.11.22

A favourite actor for baby boomers and one of the highest-paid actors in the world in the 1970s, Steve McQueen was the epitome of cool, both in real life and his movies, including The Thomas Crown Affair, The Great Escape, Bullitt, The Cincinnati Kid and Le Mans. Steve and his equally-big-movie-star-wife, Ali MacGraw, lived in Steve’s Malibu Beach home for a few years in the 1970s, which is now completely updated, just as cool as Steve was, and for sale at $16.995 million.

Recently sold in 2020 by Steve’s son, Chad, and then to songwriter Ammar Malik, (Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger”) for $8.35 million, who spent millions to transform the property from a dated beach home to one of Malibu’s best. Located on a bluff to provide the privacy that the Indiana-born McQueen wanted, the four-bedroom home is now California contemporary. With over 4,300 square feet, including four bedrooms, dining, and living rooms, plus several wide decks. Huge sliding doors open the first floor, which feels as though it’s floating above the ocean, to some of Southern California’s best views from Broad Beach to Point Dume. The primary bedroom sets above the main floor with a soaking tub and large deck. More features include outdoor showers, a fireplace, chef’s kitchen, wood-accent walls and spa bath and a private staircase leads to the iconic beach.

McQueen lived in Malibu when it was still a remote area near LA, popular with surfers and a few actors. Today, Malibu is one of the country’s most popular and expensive beach towns with spectacular mansions and upscale shops. Still extremely popular with actors, current and former homeowners include Leonardo DiCaprio, Emma Stone, Miley Cyrus, Jack Nicholson, Jenifer Aniston, Britney Spears and Cher.

Elizabeth Donovan of Coldwell Banker Realty holds the listing.
