Steve McQueen’s Desert Getaway Hits the Market

The King of Cool’s Palm Springs estate is a mid-century modern masterpiece…

Known as the King of Cool, on-screen legend Steve McQueen’s legacy is riddled with iconic films, effortless style, and an enormous motorsports collection. And now, one lucky buyer can try and emulate his undeniable rebel charm by buying McQueen’s California desert getaway 2203 Southridge Drive (located in Southridge, a gated community in Palm Springs). The $2.5 million property is a portrait of masculine lines designed in 1964 by award-winning, Coachella-based architect Hugh Kaptur. The exterior is a joining of two glass boxes framed in steel, while walls of glass windows open up the space and provide spectacular views of the desert valley, the surrounding mountains, and the lights of the city. The interior is complete with cypress paneling, a floating staircase, and a three-stall carport. At nearly 4,500-square-feet, the property boasts a lush landscape with lots of privacy, four bedrooms, two full baths, three partial baths, and a pool.
