If Ellen DeGeneres's seven immaculate homes are any indication, her talents extend far beyond the talk show stage. As Elle Décor reports, the five-bedroom Beverly Hills home that once belonged to DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi, is back on the market for a casual $33.7 million. Located in the Trousdale Estates neighborhood, the home was designed by famed architect Harold Levitt in 1956 and belonged to high-end interior designer Kelly Wearstler between 2002 and 2006.
Although the famously private residence is nestled behind large gates and thick foliage, the floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights, and stunning natural light manage to cultivate an open, inviting atmosphere. True to form, the estate also houses a stainless steel chef's kitchen, terrace, outdoor dining area, swimming pool, butler's pantry, music room, library, bar, game room, home gym, and massive master bathroom featuring two separate baths.
