Television Host Turned Real Estate Mogul: Here’s Ellen DeGeneres’ Recent Move

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi sold their oceanfront Carpinteria home for $23 million

Since the start of 2019, the 61-year-old television host, Ellen DeGeneres has acquired a couple of real estate properties in the California neighborhood. That includes the $27-million Balinese-style Montecito abode that the comedian purchased in January and the Beverly Hills mansion that she reportedly bought from Maroon 5’s lead vocalist, Adam Levine for $45 million.

Ellen DeGeneres Bids Farewell to Her Beachfront Estate

She also listed some of her properties, such as the 5,100-square-foot bungalow in Beverly Hills. Just recently, she decided to sell her 7,000-square-foot oceanfront compound in Carpinteria. Most of her real estate moves are due to the actress’ shooting timetable and personal convenience.

Ellen and her partner, Portia de Rossi purchased the four-bedroom house in 20017 for $18.6 million via trust with Ellen’s business manager Harley J. Neuman. He has been handling most of the couple’s real estate negotiations. The original asking price was $24 million, but they closed the deal with a $23 million price tag, just less than a week after they listed the property in the market.

House Features

The house has several amenities for relaxation and recreational use such as tennis court and patios

The compound has approximately 77 feet of oceanfront, a deck near the beach, an exclusive rooftop veranda, and a confined courtyard with its own furnace. You can enjoy the stunning view of the beach in almost every suite in the house.

According to Riskin Partners Estate Group and Suzanne Perkins of Compass’ listing, there are also other amenities such as a tennis court for recreational activity, and a separate guest house. As much as they want to keep the lovely beach house, Ellen and Portia think that having too many properties in the same vicinity is not practical. Plus, they would stay in their Montecito mansion most of the time because it’s closer to Ellen’s workplace.

They Also Sold Their Beverly Hills Estate This Year

Earlier this year, they also had to let go of their five-bedroom Beverly Hills home. According to Mr. Neuman, the couple was hoping to reside there longer. However, the plans have changed since Ellen’s schedule has changed as well.

They made a couple of renovations and enhancements ever since they purchased it in September. They fell in love with the home’s state-of-the-art architecture and the vintage vibe of it. They originally paid $15 million for the property and sold it for $17.95 million after a few months.

The well-known Hollywood architect John Woolf worked on its blueprint in 1962. It spans 5,100 square-foot of living space fully-secured with barriers and gates. After a series of refurbishments, the house boasts a mixture of the classic Hollywood style and the 21st century’s amenities and design.

Ellen DeGeneres has been flipping houses for quite some time now, and already had several real estate moves this year.
