Sandra Bullock has just listed her 91-acre compound in northern San Diego for $6 million.
The property, which the actress purchased for $2.75 million in 2009, is a trove of contemporary farmhouse design – complete with global influences, as seen through the abundance of French doors and Italian marble backsplash. However, while the compound qualifies as one of the world's best homes through its interiors alone, the exterior is equally noteworthy.
Situated among hundreds of olive, avocado, and citrus trees, this estate exhibits natural west coastal beauty around every corner. From its neutral farmhouse decorating ideas to its floral garden overlooking Valley Center, this home is one of the most exciting properties on the market. Here, we take a tour.
Sandra Bullock (also nicknamed 'America's sweetheart') is one of Time’s 100 most influential people, following her Hollywood success in the 21st century. The actress has starred in over 50 films, including Miss Congeniality, Ocean’s 8, and The Proposal. She is now predominately a producer at her company, Fortis Films, where she has created numerous projects for television and streaming channels.
Her property portfolio stretches far beyond Valley Center, the rural community north of San Diego where her compound is listed. Other key properties include Sandra Bullock's LA condo, which was on the market in December 2021, and her former beachside home in Georgia.
The 6000-square-foot San Diego compound exhibits a rustic yet contemporary aesthetic, showcased via its high-beam ceilings and predominately white paint ideas.
This property borrows from European design influences, both in its traditional French doors and in the gourmet kitchen ideas that feature an Italian marble backsplash with an inlaid mosaic and soapstone counters.
Beyond the main living and dining areas, Sandra Bullock’s home epitomizes stylish home library ideas – including one of the home’s nine fireplaces and lighted shelving.
The home boasts four bedrooms, all of which have their own en-suite and private entrance from the home’s several verandas. The primary suite (as pictured below) also leads straight to the garden and has private access to the pool, jetted tub, and steam shower.
Alongside the heated saltwater pool, the home has a host of luxury garden ideas, including an outdoor entertainment zone with a gas outdoor fireplace, a big-screen TV, and a pool room.
Beyond the main garden, the estate extends to include a certified organic avocado orchard and numerous other fruit-bearing trees that overlook the mountains surrounding the rural San Diego postcode.
Where else does Sandra Bullock live?

Spanning from desirable private residences to commercial investments, Sandra Bullock's real estate dealings have included properties in Beverly Hills, Manhattan, New Orleans, and Georgia’s Tybee Island, among other cities.
