Pierce Brosnan is hoping to pull off a feat more stunning than anything he did playing James Bond: Sell a 12,500-square-foot home for $100 million, or $8,000 per square foot.
The home at 3118 Broad Beach Road in Malibu hit the market at $100 million. Compass’ Malibu specialist, Chris Cortazzo, has the listing.
The five-bedroom, 14-bathroom house includes ocean views, a saltwater pool, movie theater, gym, and wine cellar. It sits on over an acre of land. Brosnan, and his wife, Keely Shaye, purchased the property in two separate purchases totaling 7.4 million in 2000 and developed the home, according to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the listing.
Most of the Los Angeles mansions that have sold for $100 million or near that over the last two years — and there have been several — have involved much bigger properties. Two examples: Petra Ecclestone sold her 56,000-square-foot Spelling Manor in Beverly Hills for $120 million, while Lachlan Murdoch paid $150 million for the 10-acre Chartwell Estate in Bel Air, whose mansion is 25,000-square-foot.
Cortazzo is also the most prolific luxury sales agent in Malibu, though his property listings are usually far lower than some of his ultra-luxury competitors.
