Sandra Bullock just purchased a brand new Beverly Hills Mansion, which is one home that she owns free of Jesse James memories. Bullock spent $22.9 million on the luxurious seven-bedroom home.
This new home gives the Oscar-winning actress lots of room and privacy for her and her 17-month-old adopted son, Louis. The home that she owns in Austin, Texas, is the place she considered "home" for years.
Bullock spent time with James during their marriage at her Austin home. This is why the new Beverly Hills mansion will be like a new start for Sandra. The memories in this new house are not made yet, and she will make these memories with her and Louis.
The eight-bathroom, Tudor-style home sits on 4.1 acres of some of the most prime real estate in the nation. The house boasts a library, a four car detached garage, an office, work out room, quarters for staff, a swimming pool, and a view to die for. Bullock has a 270-degree view of downtown LA, according to Contact Music.
Sandra also owns a home in New OrlÃ©ans, the birth place of her son, but considering she has decided to continue to make movies, buying this home gives her a place close to her work.
Buying a home is just buying a home, but for what Bullock went through in the last year, this could symbolize a new start for her. James raked her over the coals, and she is still experiencing friction from him as he continues to embarrass her in the interviews he does while promoting his new book.
This new home that Bullock moves into will not have a corner where James use to hang his coat or a bedroom that they shared together. The new home is void of James's closet and his workbench, it will all be Sandra's with no memories around every corner to remind her.
