Known for starring in hit movies like Sweet Home Alabama
and Glory Road
, actor Josh Lucas often plays the good guy, but it seems its no act. In real life, Lucas owns a Laurel Canyon home that puts sustainability and low-carbon emissions first. Shining with modern style and eco-friendly design principles, the recently remodeled house does its small part to help the environment, and of course, every bit counts. Now, someone new can be proud to own the LA stunner as Lucas just listed it for almost $2.3 million.Built in 1924, this revamped 2,835-square-foot residence has a storied celebrity past, too. It is said to be where Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin had their famous first and last encounter, which legend has it, ended with Joplin hitting the rocker over the head with a bottle.Close to the Sunset Strip but far away from its wild Hollywood days, this home is now the picture of tranquility. Behind security gates and tall bamboo awaits a serene, plant-filled courtyard with lounge seating, the ultimate first impression for a green paradise.Once inside, clean lines and open spaces will have potential buyers saying ‘Sweet Home Laurel Canyon.’ With walls of windows everywhere, green is always in view. The chic dining area boasts floor-to-ceiling Nanawall bi-fold doors that lead straight out the saltwater pool, spa, and expansive patio. Indoor/outdoor living is a must in LA, and this spot offers endless opportunities for that.There are two en-suite bedrooms on the main floor, but guests there will no doubt be envious of the master suite above. It occupies the entire second floor and boasts a sleek wraparound terrace, so waking up there every day is truly a treat.Jacqueline Tager of Sotheby’s International Realty
