Ellen DeGeneres is never one to spare any expense for glitzy properties … which makes this $2.9 million buy all that more interesting.
The talk show host just copped this modest yet modern Santa Barbara bungalow … a stone’s throw from the coveted Montecito Butterfly Beach and the famous Biltmore Hotel.
It’s a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom contemporary jewel with huge glass doors that open up to lush landscaping. There’s a cool water feature and fire pit on the sun-drenched patios.
There’s also enough room for a pool or even a guest house. Either way … privacy reigns thanks to fortification in the form of noise-reducing acoustic fencing.
The single-level home was built in 1954 and it’s gone through several renovations. It’s probable Ellen’s buying this as an investment property.
TMZ broke the story … Ellen and Portia de Rossi bought Adam Levine‘s Bev Hills mansion back in 2019 and put it back on the market in March. Ellen and Portia paid $45 mil for the 2-story monster of a property and were asking for a whopping $53.5M.
