James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has put his Malibu beachfront mansion, inspired by Tomorrow Never Dies, on the market for $100 million. 

The sale will see the 007 star make a tidy profit after Brosnan created the estate by combining two separate plots of land that he purchased for just $5.1 million and $2.25 million in 2000.

The oceanfront retreat spans more than an acre with two homes that combined to make nine bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. 

Brosnan told the Wall Street Journal that when he realized 'Die Another Day' was a hit, he turned to his wife Keely Shaye Brosnan and told her 'go build your dream house. And she did'.  

The house was built in 2010 and has so many solar panels that the new owner will be able to heat the house, outdoor pool and guest cabana and still sell electricity back to the local grid. 

The home is exceptionally eco-friendly with all water being recycled on site in a purpose-built plant along with a waste disposal system, custom-built energy-saving lighting and a solar-powered revolving compost heap.  

An extraordinary amount of care and craftsmanship went in to designing and building the mansion and matching pool house

There are seven fire places on the property including several outdoor fire pits on the patio

The lower level of the home includes a screening room with seats for 20, two bars and climate-controlled wine storage with space for about 200 bottles. Elsewhere, there’s a music room, a gym and a spa with two soaking tubs. 

All 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 also automatically adjusts various rooms to maximize energy savings. 

Brosnan was actively involved in every single aspect of building the home, right down to choosing the natural recycled wood for the kitchen benches and the low-flow toilets.' 

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.
