This could be a golden buy from the guy who starred in “GoldenEye.”
Pierce Brosnan, the 67-year-old Irish-born actor perhaps best known for his leading role in four James Bond movies, has listed his roughly 12,500-square-foot Malibu residence for a whopping $100 million, the Wall Street Journal reports.
That nine-digit asking price makes this oceanfront residence the eighth-priciest home for sale in Los Angeles County.
The Journal notes that the creation of this Thai-inspired retreat was the direct result of his fourth Bond flick, 2002’s “Die Another Day,” which grossed $431.9 million in box offices — and boosted Brosnan’s bank account with a big bonus.
He then gave a directive to his wife, filmmaker and journalist Keely Shaye Brosnan, 57. “‘Go build your dream house,’ ” he told the Journal of his request. “And she did.”
Called Orchid House, the home’s Southeast-Asian inspiration comes from Brosnan’s time shooting the 1997 Bond film “Tomorrow Never Dies.” It took about 10 years to build, and features include wide-plank teak floors and a tiled roof made of green clay inspired by the temples the Brosnans admired in Thailand.
“It was a labor of love to get the exact green color,” Keely, who oversaw the home’s building and design processes, told the Journal.
Even the home’s carved teak entry gates come from Thailand. However, the chandeliers in the house hail from Paris.
The property spans about 1 acre with roughly 120 feet of Pacific Ocean frontage. They couple bought the land in 2000. One parcel cost $5.1 million and the other $2.25 million. The pricier lot had a ranch-style midcentury modern home on it, but it proved too small for their needs.
So they tapped architects Ralph and Ross Anderson to build the home that’s now for sale. There are five bedrooms and seven fireplaces between the main house and the guest house. The master suite alone spans 4,000 square feet, and comes with two fireplaces, an art studio and a deck that looks out to the ocean.
The lower level of the home includes a screening room with seats for 20, two bars and climate-controlled wine storage with space for about 200 bottles. Elsewhere, there’s a music room, a gym and a spa with two soaking tubs.
Outside, in addition to Pacific Ocean views, there’s a saltwater pool with a waterfall and glassed-in areas for eating outside, “so you can have an outdoor dinner party and your napkins aren’t blowing around,” said Keely. They also carted in sand to build their “own private beach above the beach” — so that their sons, Dylan, now 23, and Paris, now 19, could play safely in view of the house. Chris Cortazzo of Compass has the listing.
The Brosnans are selling because they’re empty-nesters who now spend more time in Hawaii, where Keely grew up and where they have a house on Kauai’s North Shore. But they’ll leave behind memories, including hosting parties in the house. Their friend, musician Kenny G, has played there on many occasions, and his piano now sits in the property.
“I love Malibu,” Brosnan told the Journal. “It has my heart.” But these days, “home is very much here in the islands [of Hawaii].”
