We are heading into the thick of fall, and so far, it’s shaping up to be a nice harvest in celebrity real estate. One particularly good crop appears to come in the form of a pretty nice horse ranch out in Hidden Valley, California owned by one Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi.
Want to have a new pad to hand out Halloween candy in a few weeks? Step on up – you can buy this casual yet attractive spread for just $16,500,000.
(We might want to save up until next Halloween.)
You may know the very successful Mrs. DeGeneres from her wildly-popular daytime talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which has won an amazing 23 Daytime Emmy Awards over nine seasons. Prior to that, Ellen was the star of her popular-yet-controversial sitcom Ellen from 1994-1998, in which her character came out on TV (to Oprah Winfrey in a guest-starring role, no less). Oh, and she was on American Idol for one admittedly-awkward season as a judge.s
Portia is no slouch when it comes to her career, either, starring in Ally McBeal and Arrested Development. She has also landed a string of guest-starring roles in films and TV shows throughout the past two decades.
But, enough about the celebs. We all know everyone really cares about their homes, and this particular property is a nice one. The DeGeneres ranch is spread out over 26 acres and features eight cottages decorated in a subdued, quasi-minimalist tone that has a nice, simplistic, earthy feel to it. The equestrian facilities located on premises are quite nice and include a barn, dressage, judging stand, jumping arenas, and corrals.
As you can imagine, the property also hosts several relaxing amenities, such as a windmill, treehouse, and outdoor yoga place perfect for a nice afternoon out in the warm California sun – even in fall.
Add the gorgeous trees spotting the property and you can imagine how nice it must be to enjoy the sights and sounds of autumn at the ranch.
Ellen and Portia have been trying to sell the ranch since June with no luck so far, so it is likely we’ll see a price drop in the near future. rumour has it that they’re also trying to sell a more-expensive property they own to the tune of 60 million big ones, but no word on their success so far. (That one is a horse ranch too.)
At any rate, even if you don’t plan on buying the ranch, be sure to stop by for Halloween and trick or treat there. We’re sure the owners of a $16 million California horse ranch and an Emmy-winning TV show have some pretty nice candy.
