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.
