Ed Begley Jr. has sold his eco-friendly home in Studio City as he moves into an even greener abode.
The actor listed the two bedroom, one and a half bathrooms house for $960,000 in April. Since he first purchased the house back in 1988, Begley completely upgraded the building to make it environmentally conscious. Among the customized features are 5 kW of solar electricity on the main home and 1 kW of sun tracking solar panels in the unit attached to the backyard.
The 1,586-square-foot home also has a “fruit orchard, drought-tolerant plantings, raised garden bed for vegetables & fruits,” French doors, beamed ceilings and hardwood flooring, according to its listing.
The buyer ended up paying $65,000 above the asking price for the place that was featured in the reality show ‘Living With Ed.’
Begley is about to star in a new reality show ‘On Begley Street’, which features his new home. When building the 3,800-square-foot house, the actor aimed to make it “the greenest house in America.” Built out of tin, the LEED-platinum certified home, has a 10,000 gallon rainwater tank and other green amenities.
Begley is walking the walk when it comes to rallying for the environment. He launched a line of eco-friendly cleaning products in 2012, is a vegetarian and has supported activists in banning bottled water and protecting trees from being torn down.
