Sandra Bullock may not have Jesse James as a husband anymore, but she'll soon have him as a neighbor.

E! News has confirmed the Oscar winner's ex just purchased a 9-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom home in Austin, Texas, for close to $2 million that is located a mere 17 miles from her place.

What's more, the house resides on about 7 acres of land and has plenty of amenities to keep the new bachelor busy…

The 8,000 square foot pad features a gym, a game room, a home theater and a 6-car garage/workshop for the Monster Garage guy's West Coast Chopper toys.

James must have also had his children in mind when he made the purchase, as there's a second home on the property named "The Treehouse."

Speaking of the kids, James is scheduled to appear in an Orange County courtroom this afternoon to continue his battle with former wife Janine Lindemulder over custody of their 6-year-old daughter Sunny.

One of the issues at hand is James' desire to have Sunny move with him from Southern California to Texas, a situation that Lindemulder is not exactly in favor of. That being said, however, she would consider moving there to be closer to her daughter.

Well, we do know somebody who has plenty of room.
