Pierce Brosnan’s £6.5m Malibu beachfront eco palace
As James Bond he had a licence to thrill â now Pierce Brosnan has a licence to chill in this amazing Â£6.5 million âeco palaceâ - reports the Daily Mail
The newly-built mansion on the Malibu beachfront has so many solar panels that the actor will be able to heat the house, outdoor pool and guest cabana and still sell electricity back to the local grid.
All water will be recycled on site in a purpose-built plant, and there is also a waste disposal system, custom-built Â£250,000 energy-saving lighting and a solar-powered revolving compost heap.
Irish-born Brosnan, 57, hopes to move in by Christmas with wife Keely Shaye Smith, 46, and their sons Dylan, 13, and Paris, eight.
A source familiar with the house told The Mail on Sunday: âPierce and Keely have always been dedicated environmentalists and they were determined that their dream home would set a new standard in being eco-friendly.
âAll the windows are non-glare, insulated glass and there is a centrally controlled climate and lighting system that will automatically turn off the lights if a room is left vacant for more than five minutes.
'The climate control will automatically adjust various rooms to maximise energy savings. Itâs an eco palace.
âPierce has been actively involved in every single aspect, right down to choosing the natural recycled wood for the kitchen benches and the low-flow toilets.â
Neighbours on Malibuâs Broad Beach include Cher, disgraced film star Mel Gibson, Steven Spielberg and Goldie Hawn.
Along with the eco-technology, the house is packed with gadgets to make Bond proud.
There is a state-of-the-art security system with pressure sensors and infra-red lights, directly linked to the local sheriff.
The Brosnans will have sweeping views of the Pacific from the massive master suite, his-and-her bathrooms, a private spa and sauna, gym, solarium, library and high definition screening room.
In the garage there are spaces for his Lexus hybrid vehicle and less-than-carbon friendly but very 007-style Â£75,000 Maserati Gran Turismo sports car.
