Formerly, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi offered their former Santa Barbara home, featured below, for $45 million – despite declaring ‘I do hope we live here forever’ in her own 2015 book Home.
The talk show host and actress couple bought the Montecito property in 2013 for $26.5 million.

The stone house was created by architect Wallace Frost as their own home after he came back in the Italia within the 1930s.
