Ellen DeGeneres' Home Looks Way Different Than You Might Think

Ellen DeGeneres has a sharp sense of style, even when it comes to interior design.

The comedian and her wife Portia de Rossi have listed their Santa Barbara home for $45 million, a spokesman for Sotheby’s International Realty confirmed to The Huffington Post. And while you might expect Ellen’s house to be a playground of whimsy and color, the 10,500-square-foot pad looks surprisingly stately.

Built decades ago to resemble a 17th-century Italian villa, Ellen’s nearly 17-acre property oozes “Old World romance and refinement,” its listing explains.

The sprawling house, which is featured in Ellen’s 2015 book on interior design, has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and a whopping nine fireplaces. After purchasing it in 2013, DeGeneres and de Rossi bought two adjacent properties and added a pool, tennis court, and an extra pavilion for entertaining guests, Business Insider reports.

This is by no means the couple’s only house, as they’re known to purchase and flip properties often, Forbes reports. 

We’d love to stop by for a tour.

The pool terrace could serve as a wedding venue.
