Nothing Better Than These Mansions Can Prove LGBT Celebrities’ Huge Success
Ellen Degeneres | $49 Million, California
Ellen DeGeneres has remained at the pinnacle of her game for years, earning multiples of almost every award in the film industry. She has made us giggle with her stand-up acts, kept us hooked to the television watching her sitcom Ellen and fascinated us with her long-running talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She and her wife Portia have owned several homes in the posh Santa Barbara neighborhood over the years, but with their most recent sale, it seemed that they were taking a break from the city.
The couple’s new real estate investment is an expansive house and grounds in Montecito, California. The $49 million property covers more than four acres and boasts at least five different buildings. The South African Cape Dutch style’s main house spans over 9,000 square feet with highlighting features such as wood-beamed walls, black-and-white marble floors, and numerous fireplaces. Their new home is just a five-minute drive from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Santa Barbara mansion, placing them in proximity to two of Montecito’s latest residents.
