Ellen DeGeneres has one of the most impressive
real estate resumes, and has just added another stunning home to the list. After listing her Tuscan-style villa on the market earlier this year, the talk show host and her wife, Portia de Rossi, have purchased a sprawling oceanfront estate in Carpinteria, California, for $18.6 million.
Sitting on 1.13 acres, the 5,979-square-foot house boasts four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, plus an 883-square-foot guest house. Click through to take a peek inside the dreamy space.
A driveway under a canopy of fragrant eucalyptus trees leads to the front of the main house.
The contemporary main house measures at 5,979 square feet and is fronted with beautiful greenery.
On the main floor, an open-plan living space and expansive windows and doors exude an airy feel.
The elevated living room boasts a room-wide picture window that frames a glimmering view of the ocean.
Glass sliders in the dining room offer an indoor-outdoor feel with the most stunning view.
While the main floor is open-concept, a stainless steel-clad island acts a divider to separate the modern kitchen from the dining area and lounge.
On the second floor, the master suite features a double-sided fireplace that’s shared with a spa-like master bathroom.
A soaker tub grounds the master ensuite, while picture windows frame the ocean view.
Just off the master bath is a large dressing room lined with custom-fitted wardrobes.
There’s also a private study with built-in shelving.
The second floor boasts two rooftop terraces, one with an outdoor fireplace and the perfect spot for an outdoor bed.
The remaining three bedrooms are generously sized.
This one comes with a fireplace and a wall of windows that opens to the courtyard.
Here’s another one of the bedrooms, which also has access to the outdoor terraces.
The guest house features one bedroom, two bathrooms and a tennis court.
Inside, a modern fireplace grounds the spacious living room.
The dormitory-style bedroom boasts three sets of built-in bunk beds.
At the main house, a spacious west-facing deck comes complete with lounging areas and a jacuzzi.
