ROCHESTER — After moving to Rochester, actor Michael York and his wife, photographer and editor Pat York, have listed their Los Angeles home for sale for $6.995 million.

The couple moved to Rochester for better access to Mayo Clinic, where Michael is being treated for amyloidosis. The rare disease causes abnormal protein buildup in the organs, which can lead to life-threatening organ failure.

Michael York starred in the 1968 version of “Romeo and Juliet,” 1972’s “Cabaret,” and “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” in 1999.

He told The Hollywood Reporter that “it’s finally becoming increasingly evident that I needed to be near the source of healing.”

“(Minnesota) is a fascinating state,” he added. “We’ve been on the Mississippi River on trips. Plus the air is the freshest you can imagine.”


The Yorks purchased the Hollywood Hills home in 1976, as Michael filmed “Logan’s Run.”
