San­dra Bul­lock sells ranch house near Sun­set Strip

Variety - - Contents -

San­dra Bul­lock has ever so slightly less­ened her heavy- duty real es­tate load with the just un­der $3 mil­lion sale of a Zenned- out Cal­i­for­nia ranch house just above L.A.’S Sun­set Strip. Bul­lock, who took home an Os­car in 2010 for “The Blind Side” and will next ap­pear in the up­com­ing thriller “Bird Box,” pur­chased the prop­erty in 2001 for less than $1.5 mil­lion; over the past sev­eral years she’s made it avail­able as a high- end rental at rates be­tween $15,000 and $18,500 per month. Just a short, wind­ing walk from the fa­bled and ever-fash­ion­able Chateau Mar­mont Ho­tel, where it’s mostly ob­scured from the street be­hind a shady canopy of ma­ture trees, the sin­gle-story home con­tains three bed­rooms plus an of­fice and three bath­rooms in 3,153 square feet.

A green­house-style en­trance gallery topped by sev­eral large sky­lights leads to a com­fort­ably pro­por­tioned liv­ing room with vaulted ceil­ing, an­gled fire­place and a built-in me­dia wall hid­den be­hind slid­ing pan­els. Ar­ranged around a chunky cen­ter is­land with glossy black gran­ite coun­ter­tops on un­adorned white cab­i­netry, the eat-in kitchen also has a vaulted and sky­light-topped ceil­ing as well as glass slid­ers to the yard. A mas­ter bed­room opens through glass doors to the gar­dens and has a spa-style bath­room with soak­ing tub and sep­a­rate steam- equipped shower. Ro­man­tic stone path­ways sprin­kled with serene pa­tios tucked into trop­i­cal gar­dens and tow­er­ing stands of bam­boo sur­round the house; a tented log­gia over­looks a gui­tarpick-shaped swim­ming pool.
