Details and stunning pics of some of the luxury houses Ellen DeGeneres has lived in
This couple is living the dream.
As reported by Closer Weekly, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, who were married in August 2008, are no strangers to being homeowners.
Ellen came out as a lesbian in 1997. She has had a relationship with Portia since 2004. The couple tied the knot at their home in Beverly Hills, California.
Ellen and Portia owned more than one house throughout the years. They have shared a mansion in Beverly Hills, a condo in LA, Brad Pitt's former Malibu mansion, and a luxurious estate in Santa Barbara.
In 2012, Ryan Seacrest, the Live With Kelly and Ryan! host, reportedly bought the couple's Beverly Hills estate for close to $49 million. The property has three guesthouses and sat on 2.7 acres.
"We never had a house when I was growing up. We always rented. But my father would dream and we used to look at houses all the time," Ellen once told Architectural Digest.
The famed TV host added that she immediately bought a house when she made money. That was the first thing she ever did.
In recent years, Ellen's wife has been diving into the art world. Portia is now the owner of an art curation company, General Public.
The couple is currently residing at their luxurious estate in Santa Barbara. Their neighbors include Oprah Winfrey and Drew Barrymore. They bought the property for $26.5 million after selling their mansion in Beverly Hills.
The 13-acre property was originally built in 1934. It contains 10,552 square foot and has a sunken tennis court, pool, and a pavilion.
Ellen has been sharing photos of her current home on Instagram, according to Closer Weekly.
"The surrounding gardens and olive trees are almost as wonderful as the interior. The house truly feels like it was built out of the landscape, rather than plopped on a plot," said Ellen, who has won 30 Emmys and 20 People's Choice Awards.
Ellen was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by former President Barack Obama in 2016. She was named the 50th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes in 2015.
