Ellen flips yet another property

I’ve said it before. Montecito is the hottest celeb town in Southern California next to Hollywood itself. And one of the people buying and selling properties like hotcakes it Ellen Degeneres.

The Ex talk show host bought an adorable 1,900 square foot cottage just six months ago for $5.4m, but Ellens flip skills don’t take very long. says they looked into it and can’t necessarily see any changes at all to justify increasing the price $450k, but sometimes just having the Ellen name on a place makes it sellable.

Listing describes “Vaulted ceilings, divided light windows, and original built-ins nod to the home’s 1915 origins while updated baths, kitchen, and finishes have a chic modern vibe.”

Asking: $5,850,000 3 bds, 4bath, 1910 sq ft Guest cottage (includes furniture if desired)
