Inside James Bond’s House0

Former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan just lowered the price of his Malibu, California home to a smooth $3,500,000 – that’s $400,000 less than the original asking price.

 

What does it have to offer?  A secret tunnel, or two?  An underground headquarters for submarine cars, jetpacks, and other high-tech James Bond gear such as a pen that shoots explosive darts (one of my favorites)?

You would think that with the 3 million dollar price tag it would at least have a few spy-like amenities—but odds are you won’t find it here.  What the home does offer is quite nice, though not that large: 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms.

A somewhat strange mixture of Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Tuscan design, the home was purchased out of foreclosure by Mr. Brosnan in October 1996 for $600,000. 

The living room has vaulted ceilings sporting wood beams, a custom fireplace, walls of glass, and an impressive view: 

The kitchen has skylights and a view of the ocean.  The adjacent dining room has a fireplace as well as a staircase that provides access to the lawn and garden.

 

The master suite allows quite a bit of privacy, including a sitting area, a balcony, and a large bathroom with a fireplace and a claw-foot bathtub.

I’d say this house is worthy of 007 himself.    I can see him sitting on the balcony, overlooking the ocean and sipping a martini—shaken, not stirred, of course.

And don’t forget to enter our FIY giveaway.   It’s not a new house.  But every little bit helps.
