Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock has purchased a Beverly Hills-area estate for $22.95 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.

Set on more than 4 park-like acres and surrounded by an expansive lawn, the stately two-story house looks more East Coast than Westside. The main house, built in 1940, has a screening room, a library, a basement, five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Grounds include a swimming pool and a pool house, and 270-degree views run from city lights to the ocean.

Among previous owners of the house is Hard Rock Cafe cofounder Peter Morton, who sold the property late last year for $15.5 million, according to public records.

Bullock, 46, won a lead actress Oscar for "The Blind Side" (2009). She will star in the 2012 films "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and "Gravity."

The actress, who owns properties in several states, did not respond to a request for comment.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency, Beverly Hills, was the listing agent, and Alan Long represented Bullock, according to the MLS.
