Take a tour of Sardinia's pyramid house

A futuristic home fit for a pharaoh or a Bond fan, is for sale on the island of Sardinia. It even comes with a chic retreat - perfect for Miss Moneypenny.   It looks like a set in a James Bond movie and, in this instance, appearances are not totally deceptive. The scenes in Spectre, the latest Bond movie, to be released this autumn, were not filmed in Sardinia, but 007 has been to this part of the Mediterranean before ' in one of his most memorable adventures. Remember that gloriously dotty sequence in The Spy Who Loved Me when Roger Moore drove his Lotus Esprit into the sea and the car metamorphosed into a submarine' It was the highlight of one of the most fondly remembered films in the franchise, much of it shot in Sardinia during the summer of 1976. Then as now, the Costa Smeralda was one of Europe's most exclusive resorts, a playground for the super-rich. It was developed in the early 1960s and quickly established itself as a place to see and be seen ' even if it meant dodging the paparazzi. Three of the ten most expensive hotels in the world ' including the Cala di Volpe, which featured in the movie ' are to be found in this tiny enclave on the northern tip of Sardinia. Celebrity villa-owners allegedly include Silvio Berlusconi. Real estate prices in Porto Cervo, the main town, are among the highest in the world, with prices touching 300,000 euros, (£215 per square metre). There are knock-out properties everywhere you look ' and that is even before you have seen the gleaming mega-yachts in the marina, with Bond girls on most decks. This pyramid shaped villa was completed in 2010 and combines spectacular architecture with a real sense of seclusion and privacy. A difficult double-act which it pulls off with style and aplomb. Stunningly designed, with equally stunning views, the five-bedroom villa on Sardinia's Costa Smeralda ' the famous Emerald Coast ' is a property worthy of its setting. Set over three floors, interconnected by an internal elevator, Its bold pyramidical structure allows it to peep above the surrounding pine trees, while affording glorious views of the famous Marinella beach ' to which there is private access. The property is protected 24/7 by video surveillance cameras and boasts a wealth of desirable features, including a large garden, a Turkish bath and sauna, and two outdoor pools, both with solariums. Every detail of the interior of the property has been overseen by a leading designer, while the heating and air condition systems are controlled by state-of-the-art automated technology. This house might suit a pharaoh or a 007 fan might be equally at home here. Imagine 007's Aston Martin being chased by a high-speed Jaguar through the streets of Rome, then this property could provide the perfect getaway in Sardinia. There is also private access to Marinella beach with its crystal-clear turquoise waters and the popular seafood restaurants nearby. Just as a bonus, a smaller two-bedroom villa, with its own garden, is to be found in the grounds ' perfect for Miss Moneypenny, were she ever to have to accompany 007 on another mission to the Costa Smeralda.
