Bond Film Director Reduces Price of Palisadian Home

By CHRISTIAN MONTERROSA | Reporter

Palisadian movie director Martin Campbell and his wife, singer and actress Sol Romero, have reduced the price of their originally listed $10.5 million home to 9.25 million.

The 10,6320-square-foot, Upper El Medio home features six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, as well as a third-floor bonus room.

The master bedroom holds its own fireplace and private deck.

Originally built in 2005, the home underwent a remodel by architects William Hefner and Kazuko Hoshino, according to the listing.

What emerged was a Mediterranean-style home with a formal dining room, a kitchen with an oversized center island, a wine room, and a guest suite with a kitchenette.

The pair placed custom ironwork, imported stone and mosaic tile throughout the house, as well as  coffered ceilings that shelter a wood-paneled office and great room. An antique fireplace and wet bar is included too.

“Be it a formal gathering or an intimate soirée, the lushly landscaped grounds are the perfect setting; offering an outdoor loggia with fireplace, fully equipped outside kitchen and expansive lawn with playground,” the listing, held by Dan Urbach and David Findley of the Agency, boasts.

Campbell has directed James Bond films like “GoldenEye” and “Casino Royale,” as well as other blockbuster hits like “Green Lantern” and “The Foreigner.”
