Everyone has heard of Bond author Ian Fleming’s Goldeneye home in Jamaica but Black Hole Hollow Farm in New England has an equal claim to 007 heritage.

With a £3.05 million price tag through Christie’s International Real Estate, the six-bedroom Vermont ranch is where Fleming wrote For Your Eyes Only, Goldfinger — starring Sean Connery as Bond — and Diamonds Are Forever, and sits beside an 18th-century colonial farmhouse.

The author was a friend of the estate’s owners, A&P supermarket heiress Josephine Huntington Hartford Bryce and her husband Ivar, an ex-British intelligence officer who was at Eton with Fleming.

Fellow guests at Fleming’s “summer home” included Princess Margaret and Jackie Kennedy.
