Bryan Cranston Assets
In 2007, Bryan Cranston paid $2.5 million for a home on the beach in Ventura County. He then tore down the old house on the land and finished building it in 2012. The finished house was built to the most up-to-date environmental standards. It was Platinum LEED-certified as a green home and had solar panels, rainwater collection tanks, and many other eco-friendly features.
So, the Cranston house is considered a “net-zero home,” which means it makes at least as much energy as it uses. In an interview with Dwell magazine, Cranston said about the house, “We know we’ve done a good job if our guests ask, ‘This is a green home?'” You wouldn’t know it from looking at the house, though. Because of the green requirements, the cost of the improvements was 30% higher than it would have been otherwise.
