Sandra Bullock’s Real Estate Portfolio: A Timeline of Her Homes and Investments – Architectural Digest

Sandra Bullock doesn’t mess around when it comes to real estate. The Oscar-winning actor has spent the past few decades building up an enviable portfolio to match her A-list resume. According to Dirt, the Bird Box star currently owns 17 properties located all throughout the continental U.S., a mix of residential and commercial investments that span everything from a Gothic Victorian home in New Orleans to a sprawling hilltop compound in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Bullock is famously private about her personal life; case in point, it’s not publicly known when she purchased the Wyoming estate or really any details about it at all.

While Bullock has called some of these holdings “home,” there are several places that appear to have been investment properties from the get-go. Some details are not readily available to the public, suggesting that Bullock may have purchased them through an LLC or other investment entities. Here, we’ve rounded up what we do know of her extensive real estate portfolio, recognizing that while this list isn’t exhaustive, it is still quite impressive.

1997

Even though Bullock is undeniably Hollywood royalty, she enjoys spending time away from the spotlight. In April 1997, she dropped $575,000 on a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom home in Austin overlooking Barton Creek. In a May 1998 story for Texas Monthly, the star said she feels “a lightness” when she’s in Texas. “It’s the kind of place where I can feel normal again,” she explained. Bullock listed the 5,633-square-foot home for $2.5 million in 2012, and it sold for $2 million the following year.

Bullock also bought a 5.81-acre lakefront spread on Lake Austin in 1997, reportedly spending “millions” to custom-build a mansion on the grounds. According to Variety, however, she moved out of the pad just days after moving in “over concerns about mold and shoddy workmanship.” She sued the builder and was ultimately awarded $7.8 million in damages in 2004. Since then, the main house has been razed, but now there are several smaller homes, as well as a two-story boathouse, on the property.

2000

When Bullock makes her way to the East Coast, she has a spacious Soho townhouse that she calls home. According to Realtor.com, the actor paid $3.35 million for the 4,144-square-foot single-family home and appears to still own the property, though she frequents it less and less. The townhouse is likely worth much more now.

2001

In early 2001, Bullock dropped $1.49 million on a three-bed, three-bath Hollywood Hills ranch perched above the Sunset Strip, just a short walking distance to the famed Chateau Marmont. She ultimately sold the hilltop retreat for $2.925 million in 2018, which makes sense given that she was primarily using it as a rental property in the last few years of ownership, leasing out the 3,153-square-foot pad for between $15,000 and $18,500 a month.
