Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi, are no strangers to the real estate business as they are frequently involved in purchasing, renovating, and selling homes. Since 2003, the talk show host has reportedly owned 20 properties. DeGeneres and de Rossi currently appear to be gravitating towards the Montecito beach town as they have bid farewell to their Beverly Hills mansion for $45 million, their last remaining property in Los Angeles. Within the past year, the celebrity duo purchased two separate properties in Santa Barbara. The newest addition to their real estate catalog is a petite bungalow style residence purchased at a price of $2.9 million. The nearby community is also home to other renowned names such as Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Ariana Grande, Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry, Oprah Winfrey and Rob Lowe.
A short distance from Butterfly Beach, DeGeneres and de Rossi’s newfound residence spans 1,691 square feet and less than an acre of land. The single-story, midcentury modern style home includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The humble abode highlights a seamless indoor-outdoor flow with glass doors and walls fitting for California. The sleek minimalist kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, cherry wood cabinetry, and stone center island. The cooking area leads to a sun-drenched living room with fireplace. Down the hall, the primary suite is privately tucked away and offers a walk-in closet, Bali-esque bathroom with freestanding tub, and sliding glass doors leading to a spacious patio. The home also includes a second bedroom to accommodate guests. Stepping outside, the courtyard presents a fire pit, a serene fountain, and al fresco dining area for entertaining. The abundant lush landscape and exterior space offers room for a pool or guesthouse as noted in the listing.
