American Idol host Ryan Seacrest has judged Ellen DeGeneres’s Beverly Hills estate a winner.
Seacrest is currently in escrow to buy the mansion for $37 million. DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi had been trying to sell the property last year for $60 million before ultimately listing it for $49 million.
Since 2007, the couple has developed the estate by piecing together several different parcels to complete the property. They were married at the home in 2008.
It includes a main home of 9,200 square feet and three guest houses. It also features a swimming pool, covered dining areas and a koi pond. Privacy is at a premium: the gated property is on a street of its own.
This is Seacrest’s second celebrity home purchase. He’s moving out of a Mediterranean villa he purchased from Kevin Costner in 2006. He recently put the property on the market for $12 million after initially putting out feelers to sell the home for $15 million back in 2010.
