Ellen DeGeneres is the proud owner of an immaculate mansion in Montecito. The Ellen DeGeneres Show star lives in the gigantic home in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in California with her longtime wife, Portia de Rossi.
Ellen and the Arrested Development actress first purchased the 8,188-square-foot property for $27 million in January 2019, according to reports. The longtime couple’s Balinese-style abode sits on 8.24 acres of land and overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
As one of the most famous hosts in TV history, it’s no surprise the Emmy Award’s property is like something you would see at a five-star resort. The house features five bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, multiple living rooms, dining areas and an enormous kitchen.
Throughout Ellen’s stunning home, you can find tons of ornate decorations including contemporary artwork, statues and plants. The interior is quite gorgeous as it features bamboo ceilings, flamed-black limestone and dark oak floors.
The luxurious mansion also boasts a guest house. Inside, there’s plenty of room for friends and family to visit as the area is fitted with two bedrooms, an office and a kitchen. The guest house even has its own private cabana.
The inside of Ellen’s home may have caught your eye, but the Finding Dory star’s backyard is even more impressive. As soon as you take a step outdoors, you set your sights on the jaw-dropping infinity pool that gives you a clear view of the ocean. There’s also a lavish cabana, private gym, a fire pit and changing areas in the backyard.
Although Ellen is always jet-setting around the country for her hectic career, she’s been spending more time than ever at home amid the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, she was hosting The Ellen DeGeneres Show from the comfort of her living room earlier this year.
During that time, the Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient wished she had some children to keep her entertained. “I wish I had kids right now,” Ellen joked during an episode of her show in March. “I’m so bored.”
Ellen and Portia have been married since 2008, but the Ellen’s Games of Games host previously revealed why they never welcomed any children. “I love kids, but that’s such a big commitment,” she explained on Today in 2015. “It seems long-term. It seems like a commitment that you have to stick with. And I just don’t know if I can — it’s too risky.”
Luckily for Ellen and Portia, they have more than enough fun together!
