Actor Pierce Brosnan and his wife, environmental activist and former broadcast journalist Keely Brosnan, have bought a home in Santa Monica for $2.945 million, records show.
The charming single-story home, built in 1941, is in the College Streets neighborhood, which gets its name from its university-themed street names. A stone walkway sandwiched by hedges leads up to a covered front porch. The light-filled living room has a fireplace, a bay window and views of the landscaped front yard.
The 2,319 square feet of living space includes a family/dining room, an updated kitchen, a breakfast nook, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. French doors in the master suite open to the backyard. There’s also an office/den.
Outside, lawn and landscaping border a patio area. A detached two-car garage lies on a side yard.
The property came up for sale in July for $2.995 million and sold in about a month, records show.
Alejandra Martinez-Sorensen of the Agency was the listing agent. Sandro Dazza, also with the Agency, represented the buyer.
