The House That James Bond Built Is On the Market



James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has put his Malibu beachfront mansion, inspired by Tomorrow Never Dies, on the market for $100 million. The sale will see the 007 star make a tidy profit after Brosnan created the estate by combining two separate plots of land that he purchased for just $5.1 million and $2.25 million in 2000. The oceanfront retreat spans more than an acre, with a 12,500 sq. ft. home that has nine bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. It was built in 2010 and has so many solar panels that the new owner will be able to heat the house, outdoor pool and guest cabana and still sell electricity back to the local grid. The home is exceptionally eco-friendly, with all water being recycled on site in a purpose-built plant, along with a waste disposal system, custom-built energy-saving lighting, and a solar-powered revolving compost heap. Irish-born Brosnan, 67, along with his wife Keely Shaye Smith, 56, have since moved to Hawaii, where you would expect Bond to live out his days.
