Peek Inside Ellen DeGeneres’ Gorgeous $18 Million Home in Santa Barbara
You have got to see these stunning ocean views.
Ellen DeGeneres is known for being a hilarious comedian and an amazing talk show host, but once you take a look inside her stunning home, you'll want to add "design guru" and "house flipper" to the list.
According to Money, DeGeneres has spent at least $145 million on flipping homes, although she claims that she never buys with the intention of selling. And while People has given tours inside five of the talk show host's former homes, we love getting an insider look at these spaces on Instagram. Although DeGeneres doesn't have a personal Instagram account, her wife and owner of the art curation company General Public, Portia de Rossi, gives us a glimpse inside these homes on her account. From the couple's breathtaking $18 million Santa Barbara mansion to their former renovated horse ranch, here are some of our favorite peeks inside these stunning spaces.
At DeGeneres and de Rossi's Santa Barbara home, the upper balconies and large deck below offer stunning views of the ocean. Besides giving us a peek inside the stars' house, Instagram also gives us a glimpse into their life together. Hint: Their adorable dogs play a big role.
In their Santa Barbara home, the couple poses in front of their extremely photogenic kitchen. Sleek stainless steel drawers and white cabinets give the spacious room a modern vibe, which gets warmed up with personal details like plants, a vase, and cozy vintage rugs underfoot. If your own home has a similarly modern look, take a tip from this inspiring kitchen and don't forget to mix in vintage-inspired elements and greenery to cozy up the space.
The dogs are clearly the stars of the show here, but try to ignore them for a moment and check out this cozy living room decor. The comfy chairs in the background look like a cross between a couch and a bean bag chair, and when they're draped with chunky knit throw blankets, it creates the ultimate hangout space. In a space with lots of hard surfaces, soft textiles and wooden details, like the side table, help warm up the room.
In this photo, de Rossi focuses in on her adorable dog, who she affectionately named Kid, but outside the window you'll spot another look at the ocean. A cushioned lounge chair is the perfect place to enjoy the view.
At the couple's Montecito estate (which they have since sold, according to Variety), beautiful stonework is featured throughout the Italian-style villa. A sleek cushioned lounge and large outdoor rug only add to the space's charms. Whether in the kitchen, living room, or outdoors, DeGeneres knows how to style a vintage rug.
A bit of a shift from her later modern-style estates, DeGeneres once renovated a 26-acre horse ranch north of Los Angeles. The modern farmhouse vibe has some elements even Joanna Gaines would approve of (hello, shiplap wall treatments). In the picture-perfect bedroom, vintage picture frames and linen bedding match the rustic farmhouse aesthetic.
