Palm Springs - The former estate of Hollywood icon and legend, Steve McQueen, is now under contract according to THEMLS.com. The estate is securely located behind the gates of the celebrity enclave known as Southridge in the Palm Springs Hills. The last listing price was $2,500,000.

The celebrity gated enclave of Southridge in the Palm Springs Hills is going through a rebirth. New owners are restoring homes and bringing the sex appeal it once had back to the Hill. It’s an exciting time to live in the Palm Springs Hills.

Few Hollywood celebrities have defined the word “cool”, then or now as Steve McQueen. The only other notable that comes to mind is another American icon and Desert resident, Frank Sinatra. McQueen radiated a rebellious spirit with deep principals for what he believe to be right and wrong. He did many of his own stunts on-set. That’s the pedigree that emanates from this iconic former celebrity estate.

The property was last listed on the market for $2,500,000.

There is a reason why we are promoting, “There are more stars in the Palm Springs Hills than anywhere else in the Coachella Valley”. From the first home behind the gate, to the last it’s a who’s who of Hollywood’s past and present.
