Ever wondered what 007’s house looks like? Well, here it is – the stunning 1920s mansion in Buckinghamshire, UK that Roger Moore lived in while making some of the most iconic Bond films has just gone on the market for £5 million, or about $7.6 million, and it’s the perfect secret agent’s retreat.

Set on 11 landscaped acres including a swimming pool perfect for Bond Girls to lounge around and a tennis court, the five-bedroom house was owned by Moore from 1970–1978, during which time he began his run as 007 and filmed Live And Let Die, The Man With The Golden Gun and The Spy Who Loved Me.

The gentlemanly residence has all the features one of the British intelligence service’s most valuable officers could desire: a drawing room, study, library, conservatory, billiards room, gym and wine cellar. It’s situated 20 miles west of central London – a quick trip in an Aston Martin – in the village of Denham.

In his autobiography Moore said he never wanted to sell the house but was forced to due to the “punitive tax regime of the then government.” He was so broken up about it he couldn’t even look back when driving away because it was “too painful.” Maybe Daniel Craig should buy it.
