The couple bought the two plots of land the home is built on in 2000, just a year before they were married, for $7.35 million in total, Variety reports. They lived in a small, ranch-style house that previously occupied the property for a few of years before tearing it down to custom build their dream home: a 5-bedroom, 14-bathroom estate inspired by their travels in Thailand, where Brosnan filmed Tomorrow Never Dies.

The pair named the home “Orchid House,” and incorporated Southest Asian influences like a bamboo privacy wall and tropical plantings throughout. It took nearly a decade to complete, according to the Wall Street Journal, who also reported that the color of the green, clay-tiled roof was inspired by the temples the couple saw in Thailand.

The couple raised their two sons — Paris, 19, and Dylan, 23 — in the home, but have recently been spending more time in Smith's native Hawaii since the boys have moved out.

Brosnan also has three other children — sons Sean, 37, and Christopher, 47, and a daughter, Charlotte, who died of ovarian cancer in 2013 — with his late wife Cassandra Harris, who also died of ovarian cancer, in 1991.

“It’s time to move on… It’s time to change,” Brosnan told WSJ of his and Smith's decision to sell the custom home. Currently, they’re spending their days at their compound on the North Shore of Kauai in Hawaii, though they may soon look for a home in Santa Barbara, California, where they spent $2.945 million on a home for Paris and Dylan just last year.

“I love Malibu. It has my heart,” Brosnan shared. But for now, he says, Hawaii is where you’ll find him: “Home is very much here in the islands.”
