Pierce Brosnan retired as fictional British secret agent James Bond in 2002, and like the character, Brosnan’s tastes are subtle.

He and his wife, Keely Shaye Brosnan, picked up a single-story home in Santa Monica’s College Streets neighborhood for $3 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Amid a Los Angeles luxury residential market that has slowed down over the last year, the couple paid slightly less than the original asking price. The home hit the market a month ago.

The 2,319-square-foot home was built in 1941. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a detached two-car garage. There is a covered front porch and a patio area in the back of the home.

The Brosnans’ last big real estate play in the L.A. area was in 2017, when they sold a Mediterrean-style villa in Malibu’s Broad Beach area for $2.8 million. They owned that home for more than a decade. [LAT]Dennis Lynch
