“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. This week, we take a peek inside Golden Eye.
What: The name of the place, it’s a not-so-secret clue. It’s where Ian Fleming dreamt up James Bond (a.k.a. 007). He bought this property after being sent down here on a naval operation titled Operation Goldeneye. Now, with a recent redevelopment, there are 17 charming cottages to choose from. Including Fleming’s own quarters which sleeps 10 in three bedrooms and two guest cottages, plus a private beach and pool.
Why: We’re still trying to finish our Great American (or English or Canadian or Australian) Novel. You too? Let’s meet up and suck up what success Fleming left behind in the tidal waters. Noël Coward also used to live in the area, so there’s got to be some of his genius still hanging around too.
