An entry on a Los Angeles Times real estate blog has an entry today, "Where Bullitt used to relax," describing a home owned by the late Steve McQueen and his wife, Barbara, that has been put on the market.
Asking price? $1.95 million.
The writer, Lauren Beale, notes a Slater connection in McQueen's decision to purchase the home.
"He picked the ranch because it reminded him of the Slater, Mo., farm where he lived during his childhood and because of its proximity to Santa Paula Airport, where he flew his yellow Stearman biplane," she says.
Beale also notes that McQueen and Barbara moved into the home in 1979 and were married in its living room in January 1980.
The Victorian-style home was built in 1892 and sits on 15 acres with vineyards, fruit trees, an equestrian facility and a 4,500-square-foot hangar where McQueen kept his car and motorcycle collection, Beale says.
