CelebrityEnvy: Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s Beverly Hills Mansion

The couple got married in this home.

Fans of comedian, talk show host and LGBT activist Ellen DeGeneres know how far she’s come. She pounded the pavement in the comedy scene, eventually earning her own sitcom, titled “Ellen,” and later her extremely popular talk show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” which she’s hosted since 2003.

More recently, she announced a stand-up comedy tour that would take her to three cities over the summer of 2018 and get her a $20 million paycheck from Netflix, according to a report in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

In the November 2011 issue of Architectural Digest magazine, DeGeneres expressed her enthusiasm for home decor and renovation - and her compulsive desire to constantly change her surroundings.

“Changing my environment is in my blood,” she told the magazine. “Like the living room has probably been through five or six incarnations since.”

Her wife, actress Portia de Rossi who is best known for her roles on “Arrested Development” and “Scandal,” said it was actually “more like 15 or 16.”

At the time, the magazine was featuring the Beverly Hills home DeGeneres shared (still shares?) with de Rossi. Honestly, it’s hard to keep track of DeGeneres’ real estate ventures. She really does like to change it up, and often. With so many resources and a deep well of creativity, no one can really blame her.

Now, back to the house.

The main house on the Beverly Hills property - at the time at least, because who knows what’s happened to it since (and we mean that in the best way possible!) - was 9,500 square feet. The entrance hall featured a glass Ping-Pong table and white walls with lots of steel and wooden trimmings. Huge green plants gave the whole space a lush tropical feel.

The living room had a similar color scheme and more of an adobe house feel, complete with a fireplace. The home was also equipped with an enviable library and DeGeneres’ African art collection.

The kitchen was made of stuff of HGTV fairytales, with a lowered glass storage/display case and a multiple oven/stove situation going on. There were plenty of cozy nooks and seating areas throughout the house, and the master bedroom had a very relaxing-looking gray-and-tan color scheme. What appeared to be the master bathroom had a huge stone tub that overlooked a small outdoor garden.

Oh, and they added a pond to the property. Plus, the property featured a pool.

Ellen and Portia, wherever you are, whatever your plans, please keep up the real estate envy!
