Ellen DeGeneres has just listed her Beverly Hills home for sale for $53.5 million – the third property the TV host and comedian has sold in the past year.
Ellen, who is best known as the face of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, lived in the stunning property at 825 Loma Vista Drive with her wife and actress Portia de Rossi, who is recognized for her role in Arrested Development.

The couple have established themselves among the most prolific sellers of prestigious properties in Hollywood and have already sold two separate houses in the past 12 months. Ellen and Portia purchased this property from Adam Levine, the lead singer of Maroon 5, and his model wife Behati Prinsloo around two years ago.
Built in 1933, this ivy-covered estate was designed to resemble a grand Tudor house; however, the contemporary minimalist interiors offer a stark contrast from the historic exterior. Beyond the sun-glazed two-story foyer is a fashionable 50-foot living room and a full gourmet kitchen - one of the three kitchens in the property.
The house has five bedrooms, including a 2,000-square foot master suite with a large walk-in closet, 12 bathrooms. It also boasts an elegantly paneled library, a gym, and a private screening room with a bar.

Ellen’s house effortlessly combines indoor and outdoor living – offering an external living and dining area that is perfect for basking in Californian sunshine whilst enjoying a pizza from the authentic stone oven.
The 10,376-square-foot estate also includes a sunken tennis court and a circular swimming pool that are designed to reflect quintessential Los Angeles luxury.
Homeowners don’t need to worry about filling their five bedrooms as the property comes with a separate guest house where partygoers can crash when the stars appear and the champagne stops flowing in the heart of the Golden State.
If you decide to head beyond the gates of this magnificent property, you will come across one of the most famous streets in the US, Sunset Blvd, where you can find some of the finest eateries on the West Coast – from upmarket steak houses to exclusive cocktail bars.
Where will Ellen DeGeneres live now?
As staples of Beverly Hills luxury real estate, Ellen and Portia have their pick of almost any home in the area. As they continue to work from Los Angeles it is unlikely the couple will move too far, but only time will tell where these expert house hunters decide to relocate.
