Ellen DeGeneres lists updated Montecito cottage for $6 million

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi continued their Montecito house-flipping columns this week by listing the cottage they bought not too long ago in the idyllic Santa Barbara County town. The couple are asking $5.995 million for the property, a completely renovated cottage built in 1915 on 0.2 acres of land.
The property is landscaped with a good amount of tropical flora, setting it in a particularly lush setting that provides a significant contrast to the arts and crafts of the house and lends a pleasantly overgrown atmosphere to the expansive outdoor living space. A quirky water feature is a highlight of the exterior of the property.
Interiors received a fairly recent overhaul that includes gray tones in shared spaces; notable original details include the hipped ceiling in the dining room and the narrow plank oak that is used throughout. An open-plan kitchen and living room with fireplace, built-in shelving and vaulted ceiling complete the common space, although the dining room ceiling is visible for a second time in the master bedroom. A guest house brings the total accommodation to three bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The DeGeneres/de Rossi collective’s recent real estate shenanigans include the sale of Rowan House, a mid-century gem in Beverly Hills that they snapped up in the summer of 2022 and handed over to a new owner last month for $8.8 million. of dollars.
