Ellen DeGeneres and Wife Portia De Rossi Selling Home for $49 Million

Our first home owned by Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi is the kind you have to use a helicopter if you want to take a proper house photo. It's also the most expensive on our list. The biggest slice of Ellen's real estate portfolio, found in Beverly Hills, is actually selling at a big loss with an estimated value of $78 million. She bought the initial property for $30 million in 2007, then bought up the surrounding property and splurged on renovations and expansions, with a final bill of $48 million. With one main house, two guest houses and part embedded in the cliff-side under her pool, she pretty much has every feature you can think of. And to top off Ellen's baller-status, she has an 8-car garage filled with Porches (her Wife Portia gets to sleep in the house).
