Ellen DeGeneres Estate

Ryan Seacrest Now

Officially the Proud Owner

It's official ... Ryan Seacrest is the owner of Ellen DeGeneres' epic, Beverly Hills estate. 

We've learned title was officially transferred to Ryan on Wednesday.  

We have now learned exactly what Ryan paid for the property. Ellen listed it at $49 million, and although one of our sources told us Ryan paid close to the asking price, we have now confirmed Ryan paid just under $39 mil. 

We broke the story Ryan snagged the estate, which covers a city block and is just shy of 3 acres.  In addition to the 9,200 square foot main house, there are 3 other houses on the property.  The gym is the size of a large health club.

As for Ellen, she bought the main house from "Will and Grace" producer Max Mutchnick for $29 mil and then purchased the surrounding properties.  Bottom line ... we're told Ellen lost money on the deal, but given the real estate slump, she still did ok.

Forbes says Ryan raked in $59 mil last year, so he can afford it.

Okay, the man has like 10 jobs. What's the point in spending that kinda dough on a house when you will never be there? Whatever...his money I guess.

OK, the man bought a big house with money he got for basically doing nothing of note or doing nothing for the general benefit of mankind. On a similar vein, when will we be seeing Harvey's new house?

...one more thing. Ryan Seacrest reminds me of being the Rock Hudson of the 21st century.

he is single with no kids...it's his money to spend as he likes---but there will be more staff living there to take care of the house than actual residents.
seems over the top and a waste to me...

Part of the deal was she had to leave all of her s uits for Ryan, since they are the same size.
