Sandra Bullock may have the distinct honor of being an Oscar-winning actress, but she’s also adding “real estate investor” to her impressive resume. She’s recently listed her Sunset Strip starter home for lease at a whopping $15,000 per month.
The mother of two bought the 3,153-square-foot, single-story home in 2001 for $1.49 million, a year after her movie career took off following her starring role in “Miss Congeniality.”
This isn’t the first time that “The Blind Side” actress has placed the home for lease – in 2015, she listed it with a price tag of $18,500 per month. Now, the fully furnished 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home can be rented out for $3,500 less.
Located just off of Sunset Boulevard and close to the infamous Strip, the home features a stucco exterior that goes quite nicely with its contemporary design. The vaulted ceilings throughout the 1942-built home provide the interior with a very open, bright, and airy feeling. The home features a spacious eat-in chef’s kitchen with white cabinets, dark counters, a large center island, state-of-the-art appliances, and a long dining table with modern transparent dining chairs.
The large living room boasts a fireplace and built-in TV and entertainment unit. There’s also a large office area (which is really the third bedroom converted) with desks and shelving lining the walls, and overlooks the pool.
The master bedroom comes equipped with glass doors that lead out to the deck, and a spacious master ensuite with a free-standing soaker tub, steam shower, separate makeup area, and massive artwork on the wall. One of the three bedrooms is located in a loft area that can be accessed via a modern circular staircase through the gym room.
Outside is a very cool, cozy and covered lanai area with plenty of comfy chairs to lounge on. Adjacent to the lanai is the private oval-shaped heated pool surrounded by a lovely stone deck. Lush greenery in the backyard provides plenty of privacy and shade while still offering views of the city beyond.
This isn’t the only piece of property that Sandra currently owns. She purchased a Beverly Hills estate back in 2011 for $16 million, and can boast being neighbors with Latin heartthrob Ricky Martin.
Bullock is not just busy wheeling and dealing in the real estate industry; she’s also working on “Ocean’s 8,” which is set to come out next year, and features other Hollywood heavyweights including Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, and Cate Blanchett.
