Bryan Cranston is ready to break away from his bespoke California home.
During the years he starred as Walter White in Breaking Bad, the Emmy-winner was busy off-screen building his dream beach home in California. He moved in when the show ended in 2013. And although it was built from the ground up specifically for whatever he and his family wanted, the property is now for sale.
Listed with Jon Perkins and Katie Walsh of Coldwell Banker Realty for $ 4,995,000, the 2,450-square-foot waterfront home, nicknamed "Three Palms," is located at the end of a private street in Ventura, California, a city between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.
It has three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a modern kitchen, a large room with a fireplace and reading corner and plenty of space on the outside terrace with a view of the sea.

The streamlined, modern home was designed to have a zero carbon footprint. This means that it uses a combination of energy efficiency, solar systems, and recycling systems to ensure that it produces as much energy as it uses. This was very important to Cranston. 64 when he built it.
"I put my heart, my soul and my blood, my sweat and often my tears into it, and I am glad that it was such an artistic endeavor and yet functional," he said in a press release from the real estate agency about the house. "It's something beautiful, to create something with tremendous pride and effort and turn it around ... allowing someone else to take it to the next level of appreciation."

Cranston noted that listing the property was a tough decision but he is ready to give it away.
"I hope a family will buy it for their children and grandchildren to visit and they can jump in the ocean and learn how to swim or surf and walk the beach - check out the dolphins that come by almost every morning." and afternoon, "he said. "And at the end of the day, share a glass of wine with friends on the deck while watching the sun set on the horizon."
He also told the Wall Street Journal that due to his shooting schedule and travel for his mezcal company Dos Hombres, which he owns with his Breaking Bad costar, he can't spend as much time indoors as he would like Aaron Paul to have.

In December 2020, Cranston briefed PEOPLE on how the COVID-19 pandemic had affected him - including recovering from his own diagnosis, which he revealed in July.
"To date, my sense of taste and smell has only returned about 70 percent," he said at the time. "I have to retrain my brain to be sensitive to these things. I literally stop and smell the roses. And I'll open a bag of coffee beans and stick my nose in!"

Forced to stay home when the New Orleans set of his new Showtime series, Your Honor, was suspended, Cranston said he has also found delight in unprecedented downtime.
"I work a lot and most of the time I don't have to be in my home state," he said of California. "There is a significant part of loneliness. And I am happiest with my family."
Cranston shares daughter Taylor, 28, with Dearden.
