A true net-zero build, the home’s combination of energy efficiency, solar and recycling systems help it produce as much energy as it uses, making it one of the most remarkable green homes ever built in California.
At the end of a private road on a quiet stretch of beach between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara sits ”3 Palms”, a beachfront home expertly designed to showcase the best of sustainability and luxury.
Award-winning actor, director, producer and screenwriter Bryan Cranston, star of the critically-acclaimed show,
Breaking Bad, has listed his net-zero carbon footprint oceanfront home (“Three Palms”) for $4,995,000 with Jon
Perkins and Katie Walsh, agents affiliated with the Montecito office of Coldwell Banker Realty. The approximately
2,450-square-foot Platinum LEED designated home is located in Ventura, Calif. and includes three bedrooms and
four bathrooms with an option to purchase the furniture and personal art collection.
“I put my heart, soul and blood, sweat and often tears into it, and I’m glad because it was such an artistic endeavor, and yet functional. There’s something lovely about creating something with tremendous pride and effort and turning it over… letting someone else take it to the next level of appreciation,” said Cranston as he reflected on the tough decision to sell the property. “I hope a family buys it so that their kids and grandkids all come to visit, and they can jump in the ocean and learn how to swim or surf and go for walks on the beach – look at the dolphins that come by almost every morning and afternoon. And end of the day, on the deck, share a glass of wine with friends as you watch the sunset into the horizon.”
Showcasing unique architectural features, huge sliding glass doors, polished concrete flooring, high-end cabinetry and appliances, and smart home capabilities, this contemporary home features many modern furnishings custom-made specifically for the home.
Bathed in natural light with access to multiple beachfront patio spaces, the great room has a cozy fire reading nook, and ultra-modern kitchen. Boasting gorgeous unobstructed ocean views, the well-appointed premiere bedroom is a peaceful respite from any of life’s stresses, and features a walk-in closet, a stunning bathroom with a standalone soaking tub, and separate shower. The private second bedroom also has a fabulous ocean view. All additional bedrooms offer ensuite bathrooms and comfortable space for family and guests. Nothing was overlooked.
