After just about six months in the place, comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has gotten tired of her mansion in Beverly Hills, so she's selling it for $17.95 million – or trying to, anyway. TMZ reports that she's put about $1 million into making various modifications and improvements on the house, and the listing is just the latest in a series of big real estate wheels and deals made by DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi since 2017.
Known as Trousdale Estates, the home was first built back in 1962, designed by John Elgin Woolf and later restored by the architects at Marmol Radziner. According to the home's real estate listing, it was for a long time the home of Marjorie Lord, an actress of the classic Hollywood era. Fittingly, the house itself was designed in a style reflecting that era:
"The longtime estate of actress Marjorie Lord, the home is a stunning example of the Hollywood Regency style, with theatricality, elegant proportions, and dramatic details. Located in the Trousdale Estates neighborhood of Beverly Hills, the home offers breathtaking views—from the grand living room, rear covered patio, and generous outdoor areas, including a new swimming pool—making this an ideal setting for both relaxing and entertaining. Distinctive original Woolf-designed features include Pullman entry doors, wood-paneled ceilings, large bay windows, and columns lining the curved patio area."
The master suite boasts a "spacious, spa-like bathroom" that opens directly into both a courtyard and the pool, and the home has great views of both the Pacific ocean and the comfortably distant Los Angeles skyline.

Ellen bought the home in September of last year, when she reportedly paid $15 million.
