A Spy's House with a 007 Connection—For Sale

NY - This Long Island estate at 189 Terrace Lane in Upper Brookville
was once owned by English novelist Ian Fleming’s dear friend Ivar Felix C. Bryce — a real-life British spy and, in Fleming’s James Bond books, 007’s best friend, Felix.

The 6,800-square-foot, five-bedroom brick mansion was built in 1917 as a carriage house for the 90-acre Mill River Farm estate. Fully restored, it’s now on the market for $2.99 million. The Bryces bought the estate in 1936 and renamed it Farlands Estate. more
