Ellen DeGeneres Cleans Up in House Deal
Still, the TV host, 49, didn't get everything she had asked for. Having put the property on the market in March for $24 million, the actual deal closed for $20 million, according to the newspaper.
Fifteen months ago, DeGeneres paid $15.75 million for the compound, which includes four bedrooms and a 5,000-bottle wine cellar inside a 1926 Mediterranean home – and is near the 40-acre Montecito estate of Oprah Winfrey.
DeGeneres showed off her house for sale on her TV show and hawked it on her Web site.
Ellen's other real-estate deal was the recent purchase of Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick's furnished home in Beverly Hills.
