Ellen, Portia Looking For a Profit

New, 11 comments

Well, you just have to be a gazillionaire to turn a profit on real estate these days. Curbed National reports that Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia De Rossi are selling their Beverly Hills compound. It includes a 9,000 square foot main house that Ellen purchased four years ago for $29 million that's now going for $49 million (according to Real Estalker), and the couple spent another $19 million purchasing adjacent properties in a land grab, turning some into guest properties, while others were bulldozed. Rumor has it the entire compound is asking $60 million, for a net profit of about $12 million. Not bad, ladies. [Curbed National]
