As residents of California head into the third week of a mandatory self-isolation, many talk show hosts have started broadcasting their shows on YouTube right from their living room. Ellen has been providing regular updates on The Ellen Show’s YouTube channel from her 8,188 square foot home in Montecito. DeGeneres and wife, Portia, purchased the 8.24 acre estate in January 2019 for $27 million after negotiating it down from $35 million according to Mansion Global. It was built in 2011 and first hit the market in June 2017 for $40 million. An older listing described the residence as having a, “quintessential California indoor/outdoor comfort”, with, “Luxurious Balinese & Asian-influenced design.” The 8,188 square foot main house includes 3 bedrooms, 3 full and 3 powder rooms, while the 1,365 square foot guest house includes another 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, there is a 400 square foot office, 721 square foot cabana/exercise studio and over 1,200 square feet of garage space.
