Radio personality/Television host Ryan Seacrest, who is said to be worth $125 million, has purchased Ellen Degeneres’ Beverly Hills, CA compound for close to its $49 million asking price. The 2.87 compound features a 9,200 square foot main house, 3 guest houses and a subterranean garage. Ellen and wife Portia put the home up for sale in April of last year for a whopping $60 million. The couple purchased the property back in 2007 from Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick and then spent additional money purchasing the surrounding properties.

    I think I’m in the minority here, but I really like this house. The lesbo-chic interiors appeal to me, although I think they could be a little more homey, and I think the grounds and outdoors spaces are amazing. I also like that it’s not ridiculously big and almost completely private. I don’t know if it’s worth the asking price, but then again a thing is worth whatever someone will pay for it.

    Completely bored by this. I’ll just assume [and pray] that he bought it for the land and will be calling in the bulldozers soon…

      Oh yeah, without a doubt! I would be surprised if he didn’t bulldoze it.

    I am going to have to agree with Grrrowler – I think the house is amazing. Yes, it needs to be redecorated, but the indoor and OUTDOOR spaces are spectacular. The home is private and serene – and most certainly not a McMansion so often associated with Beverly Hills.

    I think the house is fantastic. The interior is quite nice too, even though it isn’t really my style. I thought the house looked great in the November 2011 issue of Architectural Digest. It would be terrible if the bulldozers showed up here!

    Wow, Tasteless. Love the people who hate this house love half the hideous houses on this site.

    This house is gorgeous. I highly doubt Seacrest bought the whole package. I have a feeling the lezies held back some of the parcels to sell to bridge the gap in losses.

    If not, this move seems to not make sense. They are buying a new house in Trousdale that’s almost the same size… needs renovations. Take a HUGE hit to buy a new house? They must have been really unhappy here if that’s the case.

      It’s well-known that Ellen and Portia change houses quite often. Ellen herself has been quoted as saying that she rarely keeps any house more than 5 years. The fact that they’ve sold doesn’t mean they were unhappy, it just means they wanted something different. If that’s what they enjoy doing and it happens to cost only a small percentage of their net worth, so be it; it’s money well spent in that situation.

    So a supposedly possible gay man bought a lesbian couple’s mansion in Beverly Hills that was once owned by an openly homosexual man. Why is this surprising?

    The same agent represented both Ryan and Ellen. No wonder this sold close to asking price. What did you expect? I think Ryan really took it in the ass this time. Ouch.

      That’s not necessary at all. Don’t be a jerk.

        I want to apologize. This comment was intended to be funny. But it wasn’t. Humor doesn’t always translate well in text. Even then, this is humor between me and the guys and not appropriate for this blog.

    Seacrest and Ellen look like twin brothers.

    PS, I’d rather take the house on Loma Linda.
