Sandra Bullock bought this beach house on Tybee Island in Georgia in 2001, but now she’s ready to let it go. She’s selling the oceanfront home fully furnished for $6.5 million.
The listing says, “If you’re looking for your very own private retreat, then look no further than this stunning low country estate. For the serious-minded, this compound, made up of 9 parcels, provides privacy unlike any other on this barrier island. Tucked away on almost 3 acres of fenced, beachfront real estate, you can escape it all in style.”
Take a look!

The front porch is wide and long and connects to a screened section on each side:

The view of the family room from the second-story loft:
The casual dining room has a butcher-block top bar separating it from the kitchen:
The decorating was done in a simple beachy style with
roll-up bamboo shades, white slipcovers, and sisal rugs.
“The spacious kitchen is open to the dining area with a view of the water and
features new Viking and Subzero stainless appliances, perfect for gourmet cooks.”
“This Tybee vacation home has been professionally decorated with a mix of
comfortable furnishings, antiques and extra amenities that will inspire a relaxing island vacation.”
Sandra Bullock’s beach house was built in 1993 and has:
- 7 bedrooms
- 5 1/2 baths
- 6,208 sq ft
- 2.77 acres
“Unwind in the casual luxury of this Tybee estate by enjoying dolphin watching from the large furnished porches, napping in the hammocks, lounging by the pool, meditating in the bamboo garden or working out in the fitness room.”
The board and batten wall trim continues through all of the bedrooms and bathrooms.
When I was researching the house, I discovered that she’s had it listed
as a vacation rental called the Elbaroda Hideaway.
That’s Adorable spelled backwards. 🙂
The rental listing said:
Relax in this private, luxury, Waterfront Estate. Elbaroda Hideaway is a spacious and well-appointed home and a magnificent private oasis located on the secluded North end of the island.
“This home is situated on one of the largest single beach-front lots on Tybee replete with beautifully landscaped and lush grounds, large swimming pool and private North beach access.”
The screened porch has a hammock for lazy days on the island:
There are views of both the ocean and Hilton Head Island from the porch.
The listing says:
Situated on the northern end of Tybee Island, a quick 20-minute drive will put you in the middle of downtown Historic Savannah. This is a unique opportunity to own a large private beach front estate in the Savannah area.
Sandra Bullock was born in Virginia but spent much of her childhood in
Nuremberg with her German parents until she was 12.
She seems to like spending time in the South.
She owns houses in Louisiana and Texas, as well.
Nearly a decade ago I featured Sandra Bullock’s Victorian in New Orleans:
She’s been in some great movies with some memorable houses during her career:
My personal faves include the old family home in Chicago from While You Were Sleeping:
The Neoclassical-style house with the round front porch in Hope Floats:
The unique glass house with the tree in the center built for The Lake House:
The house that wasn’t really in Alaska in The Proposal:
And the gorgeous Victorian built on an island for Practical Magic:
Sandra Bullock has two children, Louis (9) and Laila (7).
She’s been dating photographer Bryan Randall since she hired him to
take photographs at her son’s birthday party in 2015.
