This midcentury post-and-beam’s top bullet points—not to mention Bullitt points—are that it was once owned by 1960s movie star Steve McQueen, and designed by master architects Buff and Hensman. The listing notes, however, that the current owners have “reconfigured and added square feet to create 3-4 bedrooms/4 baths in the main house, with an additional bed/bath in the detached guest house.”
