$2.5 million Austin mansion up for sale
The star of the 2012 Oscar nominated film Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close has listed her 5,663 square foot home in Austin for $2.5 million (ÃÂ£1.6 million). The property boasts three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.
The celebrity real estate news website The Real Estalker says: "Just a couple years ago, according to the folks at Forbes (via The Hollywood Reporter), Oscar-winning actress and producer Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side, Crash, Miss Congeniality etc.), was widely reported to be one of theÃ¢â¬âif not theÃ¢â¬âhighest paid actresses in all of Hollywood who took in a knee-bucking and bank account filling $56,000,000 between June 2009 and June 2010."
However, with the newly single mum working less in the last couple of years, her income is said to have fallen. Bullock also owns properties in California and New York while she is primarily raising her son Louis at their home in New Orleans. The 47 year old is therefore selling the home she shared with her ex-husband Jesse James.
According to the source, "Since at least the mid-1990s [Miss] Bullock has owned a home (and numerous businesses) in the music-loving, lefty-liberal Texas city of Austin where a month or so ago she chose to lighten her considerable and no-doubt costly to maintain real estate load and hoisted a walled and gated estate southwest of downtown Austin on the market with an asking price of $2,500,000."
