Pierce and Keely own a number of impressive properties around the globe. In 1996 Pierce, on his own, bought a home in Malibu out of foreclosure for $600,000. He sold his house in 2012 for $2.6 million.
In 2000 the Brosnans bought a one-are beachfront property in Malibu for an undisclosed price. They eventually acquired the next-door property to piece together a full acre of land. In total they spent around $7.4 million acquiring land. They proceeded to tear down the existing structures and built a 13,000 square-foot Tahitian style mansion that sits on 120 feet of ocean frontage on Malibu's coveted Broad Beach. They dubbed their estate "Orchid House". Over various summers, Pierce and Keely have rented the house during summer months for $250,000 PER MONTH.
A fire in 2015 destroyed part of the home including the garage which housed several extremely valuable cars including the 2002 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish made famous by the 2002 Bond movie Die Another Day. The home was damaged again in November 2019 during the Woolsey Fire that destroyed large portions of Malibu.
In September 2020 Pierce and Keeley listed their Malibu property for a mind-numbing $100 million. Here's a video tour of the property:
In September 2019 the Brosnans spent $2.4 million on a relatively-modest home in Santa Monica, California.
