Anyone who doesn’t know Ellen DeGeneres must not be aware of Hollywood either. There is no denying that she is among the most famous faces in America. Ellen rocks as a comedian and talk show host; she keeps her shows so interesting and most of all, funny. We could definitely say she has it all!
Ellen and Real Estate
Ellen has recently sold her amazing beachfront compound for $23 million. This is nothing new for the talk show host. She has had a reputation as a house flipper for the longest period now. She has purchased over 12 houses within a span of 20 years, according to People. The estate she has recently flipped is located in California’s Oceanside city known as Carpinteria.
And guess what! Ellen found a buyer within a week of listing the estate. Well, no surprise there. The home is gorgeous, and it is Ellen DeGeneres’s former home. Who wouldn’t want to live there if they can afford it? Ellen listed the property late June and the sale closed just last week.
The 61-year-old comedian had bought the house in 2017 for $18.6 million. Records with PropertyShark reveal that she purchased the home through a trust with Harley J. Neuman, her business manager, who was listed as the trustee.
Actually, most of all the recent real estate dealings Ellen and her wife, Portia de Rossi, have been involved in, bear Harley Neuman as the trustee. Neuman hesitated to comment immediately regarding the matter.
Take A Look at the $23 Million Estate
The property spans just about 7,000 square feet and has ocean views from nearly every room. Imagine waking up to a view of the Pacific Ocean. Could life get any better? The master bedroom is insanely huge, has a fireplace, and an ocean view.
It has about 77 feet of beachfront, a bounded courtyard with a fireplace, a secluded rooftop patio, and a seaside deck. The four-bedroomed house has a living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, which slide to open up to the deck.
According to the listing, the estate also bears a guest house and a tennis court. The property listing was shared by Suzanne Perkins of Compass and Riskin Partners Estate Group. However, both Riskin and Perkins refused to comment on the property sale.
Variety first reported on the sale and claimed that the buyer was Jamie Kern Lima, a makeup magnate, and Paulo Lima, her husband. Variety also stated that the Limas used a limited liability company to make the purchase, though Mansion Global did not confirm the report. Also, Kern Lima did not comment since she could not be reached.
One would wonder why Ellen decided to part with such an amazing property by the beach. Apparently, according to Riskin, the couple had just bought another house in Montecito and did not want to own two homes in the same location.
In 2019 alone, Ellen and Portia have made quite a number of real estate moves in California. Including listing a $17.95 million bungalow in Beverly Hills earlier in March, buying a $45 million mansion in May from Adam Levine, and a $27 million Balinese home in Montecito in January. Well, the couple is rich and can own just about any number of homes they would like to.
