Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi just couldn’t stay away from Beverly Hills. The couple, who is constantly buying and selling multimillion-dollar homes on the West Coast, parted ways with their final 90210 home back in April 2021, but now they’re heading back to the ritzy enclave.

DeGeneres and de Rossi just paid $8.5 million for a midcentury modern home in Beverly Hills, scoring a discount from the most recent $10 million asking price, reports Dirt.

The five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom house is located in the private and guard-gated Hidden Valley community. The property, known as the Rowan Residence, was originally built by Robert Skinner in 1961. The 4,614-square-foot abode recently underwent a major restoration, led by architect John Bertran and designer Sarah Shetter, according to the listing Compass brokers Tori Barnao, Gersh Gershunoff and Aaron Kirman shared with Hilton & Hyland broker Brett Lawyer.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are back in Beverly Hills.

The wood-and-glass home features custom Douglas fir cabinetry, terrazzo floors and Calacatta gold and marble countertops throughout. There are various living areas, as well as a media room with built-in bookshelves.

The eat-in kitchen is equipped with a center island, banquette seating and a breakfast bar area, with grey marble countertops.

The owner’s suite contains a retro fireplace and glass sliding doors that lead to the courtyard. The bathroom is fitted with a large walk-in shower and a separate built-in tub, as well as double vanities. There’s also a minimalist home office, with lots of built-in shelving and desk space.

Outside, there’s a covered al fresco dining area, as well as a pool, spa and a built-in fire pit. There are numerous lounging spaces, plus a bar and a barbecue nook.

DeGeneres, who is preparing for the final season of The Ellen Show, is known for her constant home flipping, but it seemed as though she and de Rossi were planning on spending most of their time in celeb-adored (and royally-approved) Montecito, where they now own at least three separate properties and count Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Oprah Winfrey, Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry, Rob Lowe and Ariana Grande as neighbors. Alas, it appears they just couldn’t be without at least one Los Angeles home, but considering how frequently the duo buy and sell properties, let’s see how long they hold onto their most recent acquisition.
