Pierce Brosnan Finally Sells Malibu Estate

Pierce Brosnan may have smoothly defeated all the bad guys as 007, but his foray into real estate has been anything but effortless. Brosnan, who is the fifth actor to portray James Bond in the official film series, finally unloaded his Malibu estate after a year and a half on the open market, reports the L.A. Times. Brosnan and wife Keely Shaye Smith fetched $2.79 million for the beachfront house, which is far less than their initial $3.9 million asking price.

The actor's classy digs is situated right on Malibu's Broad Beach, which unfortunately for residents of the high-end patch of land, has undergone significant erosion in the last ten years. So much so that the famous couple and other residents of the Bu have erected a tall wall of sandbags to stave off more erosion from the ocean.
