Pageant place! 3 BR, 3 BTH contemporary Hollywood Hills home PRICE $1.5 million

Fit for a beauty queen? Looks like Sandra Bullock celebrated her Miss Congeniality success by adding a Los Angeles abode to her considerable real estate holdings. (Last year she bought an apartment in New York, and she reportedly owns homes in Texas and Wyoming.) Built in 1942, her new nest sits above the Sunset Strip and has a stone-decked pool and lanai with views of the city. The 3,100-square-foot interior has 11 rooms, a fireplace and spa, and lavish hard-wood detailing throughout. Not bad for a pied-a-terre.
