We Finally Understand How Sandra Bullock Spends Her Millions

Sandra Bullock’s stellar portfolio is well known. Not only has she garnered highly coveted awards to the tune of at least 78 and has countless nominations to her credit, but she has also been named among Time Magazine’s ‘100 Most Influential People In The World’ in 2010. Five years later, she was named People Magazine’s ‘Most Beautiful Woman’. Then, on the earning side, the star has been named Forbes’ highest-paid actress in the world on two occasions. Yet, she is not known for the flamboyant lifestyle that most of the stars in her category are known for, which is the reason many people are wondering how she spends her money. We are therefore happy to tell you we have found out how Sandra Bullock spends her millions and we are sharing it here.

How Does Sandra Bullock Spend Her Millions?

She Spends Mostly on Real Estate

With a current net worth estimated at $255 million, Sandra Bullock owns buildings in some of the choicest locations in the country. Another thing you’d realize is that Sandra’s real estate taste sometimes seems not to be exactly what most modern people would consider classy. For instance, she might prefer an old-fashioned building with a history rather than some of the more architecturally up-to-date edifices in town. One of her most reported and celebrated real estate deals concerns a New Orleans antique-looking house that was reportedly completed in 1876. The $2.25 million house dubbed ‘The Swiss Chalet House’ sits on a 574 square meters of land and is now valued more for its historical worth than for anything else.

Sandra Bullock also spent $3.35 million to acquire a Manhattan townhouse that is said to have been erected in 1899. Then, there is also this antiquated holiday get-away that the actress purchased on Tybee Island Georgia. Although we do not yet have the exact amount she paid for the building, it is said to be rented for $1,400 a night and for at least 4 nights at a go. That is surely because the property is located in one of the most serene surroundings you can ever find.

But this is not to say that the actress’s taste is nearly always for the bygone days. She made news headlines in 2011 when she bought a Beverly Hills estate property at the cost of $16.9 million. The property consists of a 7-bedroom house on a 753 square meters (0.19 acres) of lush green vegetation. She also owns a three-bedroom house in Los Angeles. The building which cost her $1.5 million is in the same neighborhoods with very high-brow The Chateau Marmont Hotel. Many famous stars are also said to reside there.

Now, if you thought we have told you Sandra Bullock’s biggest real estate spends so far, you are in for a surprise: she is one of the owners of the highly esteemed Sierra Towers in West Hollywood. She has acquired two units within the edifice at the combined cost of $16.5 million. There are more upscale real estate deals that have Sandra’s name to them but these ones are for illustration.

Sandra Bullock Spends on Cars Also

It is obvious that, next to real estate, another obsession with Sandra Bullock is cars. She owns a fleet of cars that some critics claim is nothing close to what is expected of the actress but which is nonetheless an expensive collection. The fleet includes a Mercedes GL 550, an Audi A6, and a Toyota Prius. We have not been able to get the exact figures as to what the actress spent on each of the cars, but here are the prevailing prices of each of the cars in the market: The prices we found for used Mercedes GL550 range between $37,998 and $42,998 while the price for a brand new unit of the SUV is capped at $95,750. As for Audi A6 which is ranked 7th among luxury midsize cars, we found $58,900 for a brand new unit. As for a Toyota Prius, its brand new prices range between $23,770 and $32,200.

Sandra Bullock Spends Her Millions Donating to Charities

Sandra Bullock has been reported to have donated over $6 million to Red Cross alone to assist in various relief efforts. But she does not like to seek attention for those donations. For instance, she was one of the celebs who donated funds to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas in 2017. Earlier, she had donated $1 million each during such national and foreign disasters as the 9/11 Attacks, Indonesia’s tsunami (2004), Hurricane Katrina (2005), Japan’s earthquake and tsunami (2011).

The actress was once also reported to have donated a clinic to a high school in New Orleans. In 2017, she donated $5,000 via a Gofundme page opened to help aged and homeless ex-pool manager for Beverly Hills Hotel Svend Petersen. You can correctly expect that there are more of Sandra’s philanthropic donations that have escaped our attention.
