Steve McQueen’s former beach house is for sale.

The late movie star’s oceanfront home, located in Malibu, California, is listed for $16.995 million by Coldwell Banker Realty. The 4,335-square-foot residence has four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

"Once owned by Steve McQueen, this astutely renovated architectural home is perched on a bluff behind gates in the coveted Victoria Point community and harmoniously connects the outdoors and indoors," real estate agent Elizabeth Donovan told FOX Business in a statement.

The luxurious beach house was made fit for the "King of Cool," who passed away in 1980 at age 50. It was considered to be his escape from Hollywood where he kept a low profile with then-wife Ali MacGraw.

The main level includes an airy kitchen, stainless steel appliances, an open dining room and a wine-rack wall. The second level includes a fireplace and a spa-inspired bathroom with a soaking tub, a glass-enclosed shower and dual sinks.

According to a 2012 biography by Marc Eliot, McQueen retreated to the peaceful estate following the release of his poorly received 1971 film "Le Mans." According to Eliot, he and MacGraw would "walk, unrecognized and undisturbed, along the beach together every afternoon."

"Steve liked to call it living in domestic bliss," Eliot added.
