Inside Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's Mega MansionsMay 26, 2022
After nearly 20 years on the air, Ellen DeGeneres announced that her talk show was ending in May 2022. The program won more Daytime Emmys than any other talk show in history. But in 2021, multiple toxic workplace allegations came out and DeGeneres made the announcement that the show would tape its final episode the following year. What retirement from the daytime talk show circuit looks like for DeGeneres is unclear but she and wife Portia de Rossi have no shortage of beautiful homes where they can kick back and relax.
Here’s a look inside some of de Rossi and DeGeneres’ luxurious mansions.
DeGeneres and de Rossi have bought and sold more than 20 homes
Since the mid-2000s when DeGeneres and de Rossi got together the two have bought and sold more than 20 properties.
“The first thing I did when I made money was buy a house. And then…” DeGeneres said in a previous interview with Architectural Digest before di Rossi quipped: “Another one, and another one, and another one, and another one.”
Many of the homes they purchased are located the Monticito area of Santa Barbara County. One of the most expensive mansions de Rossi and DeGeneres bought is Dennis Miller’s former residence for an eye-popping $49 million. The more than four-acre compound consists of a barn, a pool house, a guest house, and the massive main house. The main mansion has over 9,000 square feet of living space. Outside there’s an infinity-edge swimming pool as well as plenty of hiking trails.
As for Villa Tragara, the stunning structure is 12,000 square feet and has a great room with Corinthian columns, glass-and-steel doors, and walls of glass on three sides that offer amazing views of the Pacific ocean. Some of its other amenities include a Japanese pavilion, a heated pool, and numerous sports courts.
