He’s licensed to Hill!
The actor who plays famed secret agent James Bond in the franchise’s recent spy flicks is rumored to be moving to Brooklyn. Brownstone Brooklyn.
Daniel Craig and wife Rachel Weisz reportedly inked a deal in August to buy a five-story $6.75-million brownstone on Strong Place in Cobble Hill, according to a New York Post report.
But if the 007 star and Weisz — who currently live on the distant isle of Manhattan — are looking for a quantum of solace in their new digs, they may have to wait. The house went up in flames on New Year’s Eve in 2016, according to the Post, and its listing says it has since been repaired but that the buyer must install all the finishing touches.
The previous owners, British novelist Martin Amis and his wife, American-Uruguayan writer Isabel Fonseca, packed up after the blaze and reportedly moved into a high-rise in nearby Boerum Hill.
Craig, Daniel Craig, would fit right in with other Hollywood stars who have made their homes in the Borough of Kings, including Matt Damon — who last year allegedly bought Brooklyn’s most expensive condo, $16.645-million Brooklyn Heights penthouse — and famed Starship Enterprise captain and mutant scholar, Park Sloper Sir Patrick Stewart.
But there’s currently no Aston Martin parked outside the blue-doored brownstone between Kane and Degraw streets, and neither Craig’s nor Amis’ reps immediately returned requests for comment on the sale.
The attorney who reportedly represented the buyer — Craig, via a limited-liability company On the Rows — declined to comment, as did an agent from real-estate group Corcoran, which listed the six-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom home.
