Ellen DeGeneres sells Bali-inspired Montecito compound for $33 Million
November 12, 2020 - Montecito
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have recently sold off their Bali-inspired Montecito estate for $33.3 million.
Spanning an impressive 9.3 acres, the compound comprises a main property that the couple purchased for $27 million in late 2018 and a smaller adjacent home that they snapped up for $1.9 million shortly afterward.
Known as the Salt Hill estate, it features an 8,188-square-foot main house with three bedrooms and fou and a half bathrooms; a detached 1,400-square-foot guesthouse; a 720-square-foot cabana-gym; and a 400-square-foot guard shack.
The main mansion features an all-glass front door that opens onto a cavernous great room with dark oak floors and a thatched bamboo ceiling, with an entire wall of glass at the far end that opens directly onto a spacious covered veranda overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
The kitchen, similarly, boasts a wall of glass sliders that open fully onto a dining patio; its black marble and wooden cabinetry give it a sleek, modern vibe.
The backyard is one of the property’s highlights, with a built-in firepit just steps away from a unique infinity-edge swimming pool that overlooks the ocean.
Other features of the grounds include a koi pond, tennis court, a succulent garden, and numerous patio and dining areas.
DeGeneres and de Rossi are known for their constant home transactions, as they’ve bought and sold a number of homes on the West Coast, primarily in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.
Earlier this year, they sold their spare Montecito home to Ariana Grande, thought they continue to own their Beverly Hills mansion, which they purchased from Adam Levine for $45 million last year.
