Pierce Brosnan sells Beach Retreat

By Lauren Beale, Los Angeles Times

January 15, 2012

Actor Pierce Brosnan has sold his Malibu beach retreat for $2.6 million.

Brosnan and his wife, environmental activist and former broadcast journalist Keely Shaye Smith, put the property on the market at $3.9 million in 2010 while building another house nearby.

The gated Mediterranean they sold has separate space for use as an office or media room and sits on more than a quarter of an acre with lawn space and a courtyard fountain. The flower boxes and hydrangea-lined pathways are perhaps a nod to Brosnan's Irish roots.

Features include arched windows and doorways, high wood-beam ceilings in the living room, walls of glass, plank oak and paver floors, several balconies and fireplaces in the dining room, library, living room, master bathroom and office space. Picture windows bring the ocean view into the eat-in kitchen, which has a center island cooktop and a second island with a sink. There are three bedrooms, 31/2 bathrooms and 3,800 square feet of living space.

Before starring in "The Ghost Writer" (2010) and "Mamma Mia!" (2008), Brosnan, 58, played secret agent 007 in "Die Another Day" (2002), "The World Is Not Enough" (1999), "Tomorrow Never Dies" (1997) and "GoldenEye" (1995). He was the fifth James Bond in the 50-year-long film series. On television, he starred in the title role on "Remington Steele" (1982-87).

Smith, 48, was co-host of "Unsolved Mysteries" from 1994 to 1997.

Public records show Brosnan bought the property in 1996 for $600,000. He and Smith were married in 2001.
