Saundra Bullock, Best Actress Oscar winner for “The Blind Side” and star of this summer’s heist hit “Ocean’s Eight,” just sold her home in Hollywood Hills West for $2.925M. Originally listed in July of this year for $2.995M, Bullock must be smiling.
Property records indicate this home has been owned by a trust associated with Bullock for two decades. (People as media hounded as Bullock often set up trusts to help keep their private lives and personal belongings private.) Records also indicate this property has recently been leased for $16,500/month.
Originally built in 1942, this single-story, three-bedroom home has been renovated, upgraded and maintained. The living room ceiling is now vaulted; the designated office is now fully lined with built-in bookcases. Fireplaces warm the living room and now state-of-the-art kitchen.
French doors open up to a covered patio from the home’s living spaces. The patio overlooks a stone-rimmed pool and spa. A cabana and two-car garage are conveniently located near the cabana and main house.
On the other coast, Steven Mnuchin, Secretary for the US Treasury Department, just listed his New York apartment in an iconic Upper East Side building on Park Avenue for $33M. Similar to other iconic buildings in NYC, this one’s storied history includes the fact that Jacqueline Bouvine’s family (Jacqueline Bouvine Kennedy Onassis) lived in this building during the 1930’s.
True to the architecture of pre-war elegance, the two-story Mnuchin duplex has been meticulously upgraded while maintaining the character and bones of its structure. An up-swept, curved bannister and staircase connects the two floors in addition its private elevator from the building’s lobby.
Four large windows in the living room enable magnificent urban views outside the building and streaming natural light into the home’s living space. A formal dining room is adjacent to a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen stocked with every appliance and amenity imaginable.
A large-by-any-standard master suite includes a floor to ceiling marble bathroom, walk-in closets and dressing room. All three of the additional bedrooms have en-suite baths.
No indication about how long Mnuchin and his family have lived in this duplex and no indication about his future where-abouts.
