Yet another celebrity that has amassed an impressive real estate portfolio, Hollywood's favourite comedienne Sandra Bullock owns a number of properties in the United States, including homes in Austin, Beverly Hills and Manhattan. Perhaps this southern belle is the jewel in her property crown, however, and it has just been listed for sale for a reported USD$6.5 million. Grab yourself a mint julep and take a tour with us...
The mother of two has recently come to the small screen with the Netflix series Bird Box but made her name in Hollywood in blockbusters such as Gravity and romantic comedies While You Were Sleeping, The Proposal and the once-upon-a-prom-queen romance Hope Floats.
Most recently the Tybee Island family property has been rented out as a holiday home and sits in a dreamy coastal location 20 minutes outside Savannah. Reportedly the most expensive listing in the area, the best news is that with the sale the home comes fully furnished in classic coastal decorating style, except for a few personal items.
The entire property covers almost three acres, including private access to a stunning white-sand beach on the North Atlantic Ocean. The gorgeous property includes a large pool adjacent to a guest house with a crow's nest, game room, home gym and basketball court.
The plantation-style main house has seven bedrooms and a gourmet kitchen and is a stunning white-washed coastal décor dream, with timber floorboards, double-height exposed timber ceilings and freshly-painted timber-lined bedrooms.
The interior décor is crisp and curated in timeless beach style, including a master bedroom with an adjacent ensuite and claw-foot bath, dressing table and fabulous three-seat cane sofa. Other bedrooms continue the beachy decor with variations of four-poster singles and white timber bunk beds.
In the living room a plush white slip-covered lounge suite and armchairs, matchstick blinds and heirloom antique pieces peppered throughout the spaces.
The kitchen ticks our dream home boxes with shaker-style cabinetry, a ceramic sink and Wolf appliances. Timber benchtops include a clever marble inset running along the servery, the other side of which acts as a breakfast bar.
A mezzanine level leads to a balcony with sweeping views of the ocean. Downstairs, generous multiple verandahs (or should we say 'porches' as we're in the South?) are filled with luxurious beach-style furniture that beckon relaxation to while away the hours.
