REAL ESTATE

Former Steve McQueen home for sale in Silver Lake

A triplex in Silver Lake that was once home to a teenage Steve McQueen is on the market for $599,900.

The updated Spanish-style building, constructed in 1923, contains three one-bedroom units in 1,660 square feet on two levels. The landscaped property is walled and gated with a lawn and deck. There is also a storage room, wine cellar and laundry.

McQueen, who died in 1980 at 50, was known for his tough-guy persona. The box-office star appeared in such films as "The Magnificent Seven" (1960), "The Great Escape" (1963), "Bullitt" (1968), "Papillon" (1973) and "The Towering Inferno" (1974).

Last month, the then bank-owned building sold for $360,000. McQueen lived there in the 1940s, according to the biography "Steve McQueen: The Life and Legend of a Hollywood Icon."

Alazar Asmamaw of A-Squared Property is the listing agent.
