Last week, the landscapers were installing the vegetation necessary to keep our prying eyes from seeing Pierce Brosnan's new Malibu house. And today we noted in the MLS that his old house -- also on Malibu's Broad Beach -- had a status change to pending. If the MLS was Facebook, we'd say Brosnan is now engaged, with nuptials planned imminently.
Pending means that Brosnan's property has a buyer under contract, although backup offers will still be accepted. We'd have to say "about time" on this one. The MLS says it's been on the market for more than 500 days, originally listed in June 2010 at $3.9 million and later reduced to $2.79 million. No word on the sales price.
The house is a Mediterranean with 3,800 square feet. It has three bedrooms, was built in 1997 and has ocean views. The property is gated, has high ceilings with wood beams, walls of glass, a custom fireplace and farmhouse sinks. Nice place, but nothing comparable to the one that Brosnan just had custom-built for himself. Erase those 007 images of Brosnan racing around the world in fast cars and instead go Zen.
No word yet on the buyer.
Ellen Francisco of Coldwell Banker had the listing, says the MLS.
