Ellen DeGeneres is selling her cozy California cottage – take a look inside

Over the years, Ellen DeGeneres has bought and sold multiple homes in Montecito, California, and recently listed another one in the area for $5.85 million. The former talk show host and her wife, Portia De Rossi, have been in the real estate business since 2003 and have reportedly sold more than 20 properties to date. Their recent listing, held by Robert Riskin of Riskin Partners Estates Group, is an exceptional work of art and you’ll want to take a look inside.

The charming cottage-style home – built in 1915 – is approximately 2,280 square feet and features a main house with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 1 half bath, with a separate guest house equipped with a single bedroom and bathroom. In addition, a small, second freestanding accessory structure rounds out the space, creating a pleasant village atmosphere on the 0.19 acre property.

Hidden behind a barrier of tall hedges giving a private entrance to the house you are greeted with a strong red front door. Upon entering the home, vaulted ceilings welcome you while the large, spaced light windows and original architecture highlight some of the home’s beautiful 1915 origins.

In addition to the original architecture, the home also features a remodeled kitchen and bathroom, giving the entire home an overall modern-chic feel. With marble countertops, white cabinets and matching white appliances, the kitchen is the perfect accent to the dark and rustic hardwood floors that run throughout the home.

Perhaps the most relaxing feature, the outdoor area offers multiple open-air rooms that are perfect for gathering with friends and family, or simply enjoying some alone time. Guarded by tall trees and foliage, the private nature of the entire property makes this home the perfect getaway without even leaving your driveway.
