Per Variety, the sprawling Bali-inspired compound sits on more than nine acres and features multiple structures totaling over 10,500 square feet. It consists of four bedrooms and seven bathrooms, with 3 bedrooms and 4.5 baths as part of the main house.
DeGeneres is reportedly asking $39.9 million for the Zen-filled property in Montecito, Calif., just north of LA, which was initially purchased in early 2019 for $27 million. Since then, DeGeneres and de Rossi have greatly expanded its footprint by purchasing an adjacent property for $1.9 million and combining the complexes.
Per Variety, the pair have erected structures on the property that make it the ultimate quarantine hideout, including the installation of a new security hut for a full-time bodyguard and a wide-ranging slew of tech, cameras and lasers following reports of a burglary in August.
