Buff & Hensman midcentury previously owned by film heartthrob Steve McQueen hits the market

Designed by Buff & Hensman for 1960’s film star (and mega heartthrob) Steve McQueen, this mid-century post-and-beam in the Hollywood Hills sits on a promontory, taking in spectacular panoramic views of the LA’s cityscape and the rolling canyons below.

Constructed in 1958, the oasis-like home at 2419 Solar Dr is gated for privacy, with a secluded driveway leading to the main dwelling wrapped in glass walls and surrounded by a zen-like garden featuring a saltwater pool and spa.

Inside, light is abundant throughout the reconfigured and expanded interior, measuring 3,594 square feet with many signature midcentury modern attributes of the famed architect duo, including beamed ceilings, expansive glass walls, clerestory windows, and organic materials.

Public spaces flow easily between the gourmet kitchen with a superb center island, stainless steel appliances, multiple gathering areas, outdoor decks, and landscaped gardens.

The bedrooms in their wing offer a primary suite with a remodeled spa-like bathroom, massive jetted soaking tub, open shower, fireplace, patio access, and multiple walk-in closets.

Last sold in 2016 for $3.525 million, the home now seeks $4.395 million, including a detached two-bedroom guesthouse.
