This day host is moving to more expensive California pastures.
Just six months after purchasing a Mediterranean-style property in affluent Montecito, and just weeks after purchasing a more expensive, Moorish-inspired one nearby, Ellen DeGeneres has sold this pad — and for a profit.
The 64-year-old comedian and her 49-year-old wife, Portia de Rossi, swapped out this 4,780-square-foot, three-bedroom, four-bathroom, 4,780-square-foot home last month, property records show. according to Mansion Global. The couple received $13.9 million for the property, which they purchased in September for $12 million through a trust linked to corporate executives.
The buyer is Soren Urry, president of commercial real estate developer Synergy Development, the outlet reported.
The property has wine storage, treatment room, billiards area, open plan eat-in kitchen and a separate studio area that could easily be used as a guest house or gym.
The master bedroom has a marble bath and outdoor shower – and the other two bedrooms each have a grand piano on opposite sides of the living space. There are black double doors and windows throughout the house, which was built in 2018.
“The line between indoor and outdoor living spaces dissolves as floor-to-ceiling pocket doors merge into walls that lead to a private garden filled with fountains and lush plants,” advertised the listing by Riskin Partners Estate Group, which declined to comment for this article.
The sale follows DeGeneres’ purchase of a nearly 12,000-square-foot, 6-acre mansion in Montecito last month. DeGeneres — whose show will end this year — spent nearly $21 million on the property, which is a deal considering it was reportedly asking for as much as $35 million in 2019, according to reports at the time.
DeGeneres and de Rossi have quite a real estate profile in the area: They also own a $14.3 million ranch and small cottage in Montecito, The Post previously reported.
