Stephen lived a very quiet, private life when at home. A good deal of his life was spent abroad in Europe making movies for Hollywood and European producers. But when he had time to relax, Stephen enjoyed a wide ranges of hobbies- from golf, tennis, swimming, reading, rowing, playing guitar, writing music, tinkering with cars and dabbling in art & photography. Here are a few pics from various magazines showing Stephen in his off time.
Stephen Boyd spent most of his time in “The Valley”, as its called. He moved into his ranch style Tarzana home in April of 1961. This house was most likely located at 5520 Donna Avenue in Tarzana, California, 91356. It was built in 1947. It’s a quiet residence just off the main city street.
