Celebrated Irish actor Pierce Brosnan, popular for his role as the fifth James Bond in the Bond series recently listed his spectacular Malibu Beach Orchid house for a whopping $100 million. The Thai-inspired home, only 117 feet from Malibu Beach’s Oceanfront was designed by renowned architects Ralph and Ross Anderson.
It has been in the actor’s possession since 2000 when he bought it with his wife, Kelly Shaye Smith. They then spent about 10 years building and finishing this magnificent oasis which they came to name, “Orchid House.”
Owing to Pierce’s frequent traveling to exotic destinations around the world, he picked up numerous architectural designs that now define the house’s interior and exterior artistic designs.
Sitting on 1.18 acres of land, the 13,000 square-foot home provides some of the best ocean and beach views in Malibu.
