Ellen DeGeneres has just expanded its real estate portfolio … forested a home in Beverly Hills.
Our property sources tell us that the talk show host dropped by a staggering $ 8.5 million for the 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom home.
The place is 4,614 square feet and it looks like a fixer top. Real talk … the home looks dated. It was built way back in 1961 and has been through at least one renovation.
Ellen closed the escrow at the site Friday. It has a pool, fire pit, chef’s kitchen and lush gardens. Some rooms are even heated with ovens.
She wants some famous neighbors … among them, Adele and Cameron Diaz.
It’s the second home purchase in so many months for Ellen … as we reported, she threw down $ 2.9 million back in June for a 2-bedroom pad in Santa Barbara.
Ellen is quite familiar with Bev Hill’s real estate … she recently sold a 2-story monster of a property she bought from Adam Levine.
Celebrity real estate agent Kurt Rappaport held the listing on Ellen’s most recent purchase.
