Where Does Sandra Bullock Live?

As mentioned earlier, the primary residence for Sandra Bullock is in New Orleans, Louisiana. One of the reasons Bullock decided to stay in New Orleans is to help her get away from the tiring lifestyles of New York and Hollywood.

The star is quite private when it comes to her personal life. Still, she has several properties, including a mansion in New Orleans, a hilltop estate in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and a waterfront estate in Austin, Texas.

1. New Orleans, Louisiana

Sandra Bullock and her then-husband Jesse James bought this Victorian-era mansion in 2009 for about $2,250,000. The home, known as Swiss Chalet House or Freret's Folly, situated in New Orleans, is 6,615 square feet and has five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.

It features an ornate entryway, a high ceiling, a carved column, and an elegant Victorian style. The home was built by Architect William Fretet in 1876. With ornate traditional features on its three-story frame, this is by far the regular housing Bullock craved in 1988.

2. Los Angeles, California

During the Covid 19 pandemic, Sandra Bullock and her family chose to stay in Los Angeles. She reportedly bought this attractive Tudor-style home in 2011 for $23 million.

This home was built in the 1940s and sits on four acres of land. It looks like this Bird Box star had, and still has, a taste for historic homes. But when we say historic, it doesn't mean that the house isn't resourceful.

Sandra Bullock's Los Angeles home features seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and a guest house. It also has a tennis court, home theater, a pool, and a gym. This flat, hilltop estate has a 270-degree view, where she can see the Pacific ocean.

3. Austin, Texas

When her career was at the top, the actress wanted to settle down someplace she could relax. Bullock bought a three-bedroom house in Austin overlooking Barton Creek in the spring of 1997. The actress paid $575,000 for the property, which is 5,633 square feet and has two and a half bathrooms. Bullock sold this house for $2 million in 2003.

According to Telegraph, the property was supposedly infested with mold and had a leaky roof, water damage, and faulty wiring. In 2004, the actress earned $7.8 million in damages after suing the builder.

4. Beverly Hills and Malibu

In 2018, Bullock bought three properties: one in Beverly Hills and Malibu, and the other two in an exclusive community in the city. None of these properties were purchased with the help of mortgages. She was able to acquire all of these properties for a total of $16.5 million.

The first acquisition was in June 2018, when she purchased a 5-bedroom home in a prestigious gated community of Malibu for $8.5 million. It was surrounded by 24-hour security and some neighbors, such as Jon Burton, the producer of the upcoming film "The Lego Movie."

The 3,700-square-foot mansion, built in 1979, has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. There is an open plan with tile flooring, sliding glass doors, and a kitchen that screams the late '90s with dark-stained wood cabinets, white-veined ebony granite counters, and a complete caboodle of costly stainless equipment.

Bullock paid $8.5 million for the beachfront property using a 1031 exchange, a financial technique that permits an owner to delay capital gains taxes by exchanging one investment property for another. Bullock purchased the Malibu home shortly before selling a smaller rental house she owned in the Hollywood Hills.

Bullock spent $5.3 million in June 2020 on another beachfront property inside the same Malibu gated community. Dirt indicates that this time a modest single-story cottage was only a few meters away from the bigger $8.5 million building.
