About 811 E Grace Circle

The original Steve McQueen residence, Dan Palmer & William Krisel architects for the Alexander Construction Co. (c. 1960). Situated at the end of a quiet cut-de-sac in the heart of the desirable Racquet Club Estates, this classic Mid-century modern home incarnates the effortless lifestyle the actor is know for. Purchased with income from his first major roles including the ''The Magnificent Seven'' the residence served him as a sanctuary and retreat from Hollywood as well as an outpost for trips into the Mojave desert. The property sits on an expansive, pie-shaped lot facing the San Jacinto mountains to the west. The oversized pool was designed by McQueen in the shape of Mickey Mouse's head allowing him to swim laps and to enjoy the company of friends and family in intimate conversation areas. Originally a 3 bedroom, 3 bath property, the home was carefully expanded by the current architect owner to include a 4th bedroom suite or den, as well as a bunk cabin for kids or overnight guests. The open kitchen features a restaurant-grade stove and period Pierre Cardin cabinets. Multiple sliding doors expand the living area to the garden where mature olive and citrus trees provide a tranquil backdrop. The original patio furniture still remains. The home is well-documented in the series of iconic photographs of the actor by Life magazine photographer John Dominis.
