Do you want to live with Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi? Well you can’t, but you can live in their old villa. That is, if you have a spare $45 million roosting in the bank—the posh Santa Barbara pad just hit the market. Known simply as "the villa," the estate boasts a lap pool, sunken tennis courts, a super-fancy indoor-outdoor entertaining pavilion for all of your fabulous future parties, and incredible views of the ocean, harbor, and mountains.
Originally built in the 1930s, the two-story, 11,395-square-foot spot was created by famed architect Wallace Frost who modeled the home after a traditional 17th-century Italian villa. The 6-bedroom, 8-bathroom space was featured in Ellen's 2015 book "Home."
The comedian/author/talk show host and her Australian actress of a wife bought the place in 2012, gobbling up the properties on either side to make the villa the expansive estate that it is today.
