We had the pleasure to represent Ed Begley Jr. in the purchase of his new home in Studio City. This home is being built to LEED Platinum Standards. LEED is a rating system used to certify how green and eco-friendly the construction is of a home or building is. Having the LEED Platinum rating, Ed’s home is certified as being built to the highest and most strict regulations making it North America’s greenest, most sustainable home.
This property is on an oak tree studded lot. During our property search with Ed, he had a special criteria that we had to meet to build this dream home. The property had to have a lot of sun exposure to give the solar panels enough sun during daylight hours. Having 200 year old oak trees was a huge selling point for Ed. These trees were all protected during the build process and never touched. They ultimately give this property amazing character.
Ed has a web series called On Begley Street. You can click that title to view the website dedicated to the building of this home. This home is scheduled to be completed in the spring, 2015.
We sold Ed’s former home for him during the build of his current LEED Platinum dream home. Ed lived in this studio city home since 1988 and made it in his words “as green as I can get it” Being such a special home we marketed it world wide. We listed the home for $960,000 and sold it for $1,025,000. You can view a video of this home below.
We are very proud of being a part of the team dedicated to help Ed Begley Jr, Rachelle Carson Begley and their daughter Hayden make history. Ed not only talks the talk, but he walks the walk. He is dedicated to living the ultimate green and eco-friendly life style. You can find him all over the media educating anyone that wants to live a greener life.
