Bryan Cranston’s custom-designed, eco-friendly Ventura County beach house is officially off the market. The Breaking Bad actor recently accepted an offer of $5.45 million, the Los Angeles Times reports, more than double what he and wife Robin Dearden paid for it in 2007, and substantially more than his $4.995 million asking price. (The couple put down $2.5 million for the existing 1940s two-story home at the time, and then spent a substantial amount of money to design and build an eco-friendly dwelling in its place.)

Measuring 2,450 square feet, the three-bedroom, four-bathroom pad is a modern structure entirely built with eco-friendly materials like glass, titanium, and polished concrete, with solar panels on the roof. The home is full advanced technologies, such as hydronic panels for its hot water needs and specially insulated, energy-efficient wall panels to keep the indoor temperature consistent year-round, eliminating the need for environmentally harmful air-conditioning.

The main level includes an open-floor plan living room with a wall of glass sliders opening out onto an expansive deck, a sleek slate-gray kitchen, and a cozy breakfast nook with unobstructed views of the coastline. From the back deck, the beach is just a few steps down. The main suite, located one floor up, has its own balcony and a modern en suite bathroom that flows through to a spacious walk-in closet. Cranston previously told The Wall Street Journal that he was hesitant to let go of the unique property after sinking so much time and energy into rebuilding the home (he enlisted the help of his friend, designer John Turturro, to come up with the concept); ultimately, however, he decided to sell the home because he doesn’t get a chance to spend much time there anymore. “[I’m feeling] more Buddhist and zen about it,” he told the publication.
