A Palm Springs, California, home once owned by actor Steve McQueen is back on the market after falling out of escrow last year.

Perched on a private stretch above the Coachella Valley, the split-level post-and-beam was designed by renowned midcentury-modern architect Hugh Kaptur and built in 1964. McQueen, who starred in the 1968 cop movie “Bullitt,” bought the house in the late ’60s and owned it until his death in 1980.

Listed for $2.5 million, the roughly 4,500-square-foot house includes a living room with a fireplace, a floating staircase, four bedrooms and 4.25 bathrooms. Interior details include clean lines, burnished metal floors and walls of floor-to-ceiling windows.

A long wraparound deck extends from the second level and takes in mountain and valley views. There are also a swimming pool and a car port with parking for up to eight cars.
