Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have a hobby most can only dream of; buying homes so they can fill them with beautiful furniture and décor. Once they’re bored with decorating the home, they often put it on the market. That was certainly the case with the Thousand Oaks ranch that they recently listed, which has been featured in Elle Décor and Architectural Digest. But the Beverly Hills penthouse they just sold for $843,900 may be the exception.
Even though it’s a corner penthouse, the furniture and décor – which you can see in the listing photos – doesn’t have the same pizzazz as Ellen and Portia’s other homes. It’s likely the couple purchased the condo as a convenient place to stay when filming TV shows and movies, or it could be a home for a family member. The 1,683 square foot condo was built in 1985 and has two bedrooms and two baths. Amenities include a doorman, valet parking, security, gym, pool, spa, and club room.
The couple first listed the condo on June 12 for $899,000, which means the buyer must have negotiated down to the final sale price of $843,900. The couple purchased the home in 2010 for $835,000, under the name of their business manager Harley J. Neuman. For more photos and information, check out the listing on Redfin.com.
