The current owner owns two adjacent properties.
Both are also for sale.

One is Steve McQueen's house, designed by Hugh Kaptur.

I had a chance a few years ago to visit both the McQueen House and the Elrod house.

The McQueen house is quite a time-capsule. The owner originally planned to update the house and, then, upon owning the property for a while, decided to leave it as is. (Yeah!)

The house was open to tours this weekend - today was sold out as is tomorrow, but the more expensive lunch tour is still available for Sunday.

There are much better photos than I took on the site link above, so I won't post mine here ... except this one:

a very common mailbox on the street. Who would have thunk it? (And that's the Steve McQueen house peeking above the Elrod house roof.)

Even I have a better mailbox than that, it's secure, it's too hard to steal from mine, but as a slight plus the Elrod house is most likely on a gated street.
