Another day, another Ellen DeGeneres/ Portia de Rossi manse on the market.
Just a few weeks ago we got to peek into one of two Los Angeles condos the couple is selling for $7 million.
Now DeGeneres and de Rossi have decided to unload their real estate motherload: a $45 million, approximately 10,500-square-foot, six-bedroom, six-bath (plus two half-bath) estate in Montecito, CA.
According to People, the couple purchased the 1930's home, known as "The Villa," in 2012, for $26.5 million, and have done extensive work on the property to make worth every penny of its $45 million asking price.
Note to self: Give home a name...Possibly something like "The Boyfriend Bought It and I'm Reaping All the Benefits."
According to a Sotheby's International Realty listing, 18th-century Spanish gates secure the 16.88-acre estate and open on to a quarter-mile driveway lined by olive and eucalyptus trees.
The two-story home itself was designed and built by architect Wallace Frost after living in Italy and emulates classic 17th-century Italian villas.
Terra-cotta, exposed beams, Italian tile and quarried stone carry the Italian look throughout the home.
The kitchen blends old with new and features marble surfaces and stainless steel appliances.
But it's how DeGeneres and de Rossi incorporate industrial style with the villa's oversized old world charm—all the while maintaining a homey feel—that is most impressive.
Somehow a house with several libraries, living rooms, dining rooms, a media room and nine fireplaces feel inviting.
And each of the home's six bedrooms is cozier than the last.
But it's the master bedroom and bathroom that causes my heart to hurt a little bit because I know, deep down inside, I will never live in a house this beautiful.
And we haven't even got to the view yet.
And there's a roman style, sunken pool because, of course, there is.
This is really getting painful, but who can look away?
According to Variety, in addition to shelling out $26.5 million for the home in 2013, DeGeneres and de Rossi spent an additional $2.3 million to buy an adjoining vacant parcel so they could add to their paradise.
They also added a sunken tennis court:
A second pool:
And a poolside entertainment pavilion they call "Jordan Hall":
Oh, and Jordan Hall comes complete with an alfresco dining area, complete with barbecue and pizza oven:
Jordan Hall has its own state of the art kitchen:
And a bathroom complete with an outdoor bathtub so dreamy that it rivals the tubs in those Cialis commercials:
I'm pretty sure that if I had erectile dysfunction, that tub would fix it.
All hail Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, creators of home masterpieces so good they should require a prescription. I can't wait to see what they do next.
