The Belle Epoque-style estate of the late actor Sean Connery is situated on a hillside in the Cap de Nice. Pretty much every room brags exhilarating panoramic views of the coast.

"You get an amazing elevated view over the bay in front of you, but you also get the view up to the mountains, and the view along the coast," Edward de Mallet Morgan, partner at Knight Frank, shared in an interview with CNN.

A MEMORABLE HOUSE

The property has a primary residence, which covers nearly 1,000 square meters, de Mallet Morgan added. The master bedroom holds a whole floor. The villa also has a gym and a fitness room, a wine cellar, and two guest villas.

According to PEOPLE, Connery's home played a role in the final turn of the actor as James Bond. A film writer recalled to the outlet how the hit movie "Never Say Never Again" (1983) was filmed in the estate.

"I had a set visit to the house," the writer explained. "It was a long time ago but it made an amazing impression." Connery bought the property after tying the knot with painter Micheline Roquebrune in 1970.

Real estate professional Mikael Zwaans of Knight Frank Cap Ferrat real estate agency said that Connery and Roquebrune lived there for a long time.

Connery's acting career spanned seven decades.

A ONE-OF-A-KIND PROPERTY

The neighbors still called it "Sean Connery's house," Zwaans added. The realtor shared that Connery's house, which has a retro style, is a unique and amazingly delightful area.

Meanwhile, Fredrik Lilloe, the CEO of Knight Frank Cap Ferrat, said that the physical layout of the home is remarkable. He described the property as "one of a kind."

A PROLIFIC CAREER

Connery passed away on October 31, 2020, at his home in the Lyford Cay community of Nassau in the Bahamas. The beloved actor was 90 years old, as reported by the BBC.

The actor died in his sleep, according to his son. Connery's acting career spanned seven decades. For his role in "The Untouchables," he won an Academy Awards in 1988.

His other notable movies included "The Hunt for Red October," "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," "The Man Who Would Be King," "Finding Forrester," and "The Name of the Rose."

In 1987, Connery was made a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters in France. He was given the US Kennedy Center Honors lifetime achievement award in 1999.
