Actor, screenwriter, producer, and director Bryan Cranston is cutting ties with his oceanfront property in Ventura, California, which he dubbed Three Palms. The Hollywood A-lister, best known for his role as Walter White in the acclaimed series Breaking Bad, built the 2,450-square-foot home in 2013, keeping sustainability at the forefront of the design.
Built in 2013, the 2,450-square-foot residence is situated at the end of a private road in Ventura, California-a vibrant coastal town between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.
"This is one of the most fantastic properties I’ve ever listed," says one of the listing agents, Jon Perkins. "The home perfectly blends luxury with sustainability, and it took the owners more than five years to plan and build...The owners’ goal was to show you could build a house sustainably and your guests would never know it."
As with its exterior facade, the home features a sleek, modern interior, complete with polished concrete flooring, expansive sliding doors, and custom-built furnishings. A cozy reading nook in the corner of the living room overlooks the calming waves, just steps away from the home.
Set at the end of a private road on a serene stretch of beach, the net-zero, multi-level home spans 2,450 square feet. Inside, a free-flowing layout unites the bright and spacious living areas, which open up to the neighboring shoreline thanks to huge sliding glass doors. Newly polished concrete flooring complements the surrounding white walls.
Another notable feature is the home’s top-of-the-line fixtures and amenities. "It offers Schuco windows and doors, and an ELAN smart home system in a completely environmentally friendly package," says Perkins.
Another view of the main living room shows the position of the kitchen. As part of the sale, the lucky buyer will have the option to purchase the furniture, as well as the displayed art collection.
The open-concept kitchen is fitted with high-end Wolf appliances, which cohesively blend with the imported cabinetry by Poggenpohl. Soaring, curved windows encasing the corner dining area offer unobstructed ocean views, while another set of glass doors provide direct access to the deck where additional seating awaits.
A central island anchors the sun-drenched kitchen. Custom cabinetry lining the back wall provides ample storage, while the open layout allows fresh breezes to flow through the home.
Reflecting on his decision to sell the dwelling, Cranston notes in a recent press release, "I put my heart, soul, 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."
A spacious deck on the home's backside caters to both small- and large-scale entertaining.
In total, the residence features three bedrooms, each of which include an en suite bath. The principal suite presents a peaceful retreat, complete with a standalone soaking tub, walk-in closet, and outdoor patio. There is also a bonus area, which can easily be used as a home office, media center, or as another bedroom.
The main stairwell, located in the front of the home, features a skylight and a hanging pendant that brighten the white walls.
"As a LEED Platinum–certified green home, the property is a true net-zero build, meaning it produces as much energy as it uses," says Perkins. "Its combination of energy-efficient solar and recycling systems help make it one of the most remarkable green homes ever built in California. Overall, it’s an amazing property on a quiet stretch of sandy beach, ready for it’s lucky new owner."
Polished concrete flooring continues into the three bedrooms, including the principal suite. Black-framed sliding doors lead out to the upper-level terrace.
The principal suite features an oversize soaking tub.
Adds Cranston, "I hope a family buys [the home] 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 while looking at the dolphins that come by almost every morning and afternoon."
Each of the home’s bedrooms captures views of the pristine coastline.
The upper-level terrace presents an idyllic spot for taking in sunsets.
The bonus room offers a quiet corner to rest and relax, and is complete with a translucent glass door and window for added privacy.
Concrete steps off the home’s rear deck lead directly to the sand.
