A gated Mediterranean owned by actor Pierce Brosnan has come on the market in Malibu at $3.9 million.

Designed as an artist's retreat, the two-story beach house includes a separate space that can be used as an office or media room. The living room has soaring wood-beam ceilings, walls of glass, a fireplace, plank oak flooring, built-in cabinetry and two balconies with ocean and mountain views. Skylights and picture windows bring light into the kitchen. The master suite includes a sitting area, balconies and a bathroom fireplace. In total there are five fireplaces, three bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms, according to the Multiple Listing Service.

Before Brosnan, 57, starred as James Bond in "GoldenEye" (1995), "Tomorrow Never Dies" (1997), "The World Is Not Enough" (1999) and "Die Another Day" (2002), he played the title role on the television series "Remington Steele" from 1982 to 1987.
