Since purchasing the home in 2013 for $26.5 million, the couple has acquired two adjacent properties that pushed the size of the current estate to 16.88 acres.

In her continued (unofficial) pursuit to become one of Hollywood’s most prolific and successful house flippers, Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, the actress Portia de Rossi, have listed their Montecito villa for $45 million.

Since purchasing the home in 2013 for $26.5 million, the couple has acquired two adjacent properties that pushed the size of the current estate to 16.88 acres. The stonework, landscaping with olive and eucalyptus trees and the rustic-chic interior are clear evocations of a home that could have existed on the Appian Way centuries ago that was owned by a Roman senator.

The 10,500-square-foot home sits atop a winding, secluded street with ocean views on one side and mountain views on the other. Designed and built in the 1930s by architect Wallace Frost, the home has six bedrooms, six baths, nine fireplaces, a media room, multiple libraries, a living room, a formal dining room, and a modern kitchen with marble-wrapped surfaces. In the photos below, note the walls of locally quarried stone, the barrel-tiled roof, terra-cotta surfaces, and exposed ceiling beams, all complemented by 18th century Italian tiles.

The grounds feature several fountains, statues and gardens, along with an outdoor dining area. The most modern addition is an indoor-outdoor entertaining area with an infinity pool, a tennis court and a Japanese soaking tub.

The listing agent on the home is Sotheby’s Suzanne Perkins. To visit Suzanne’s website click here

WSJ: Arizona Mansion Aims for Record $35 Million Price

An elaborately outfitted Arizona mansion listing for $35 million could set a new record for the state if it fetches its asking price.

The 12-acre gated estate has a hair salon, a movie theater and an indoor basketball court, according to Walt Danley and Catherine Jacobson of Walt Danley Realty, who are listing the property with global marketing support by Christie’s International Real Estate. The property is located in Paradise Valley, an affluent community between Scottsdale and Phoenix.

If it sells for its asking price, it would set a record for the priciest home sale ever in Arizona, according to Jim Patterson of the Information Market, a Tempe-based real estate data and analytics company.

Surrounded by palm trees, the estate has views of Camelback Mountain. The five-bedroom main house measures more than 30,000 square feet, with a domed ceiling and twin stairways at the entrance. The master suite has the hair salon, a sitting room, an office, a kitchenette and multiple terraces as well as his-and-hers closets. The basketball court has an electronic scoreboard and a skybox. The movie theater is decorated with James Bond posters and boasts its own lobby.

The grounds include a swimming pool, his-and-hers pool houses and a three-bedroom guesthouse with its own infinity pool.

The seller is Robert Sussman, founder of New York City-based hedge-fund company Bentley Capital Management. Mr. Sussman, 68, said he spent about five years building the house, completing it in 2005. He said he is selling because he and his wife are planning to spend more time with family in California.
