Ryan Seacrest

Unloads Fabled Mansion

8/28/2012 11:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Seacrest has just sold his mansion.
Ryan Seacrest
has just sold the mansion he called home before upgrading to Ellen DeGeneres' sick pad ... TMZ has learned.

The 8,000 square foot house -- which has a detached nightclub -- was listed for $12.9 million and sold for $11 million.  Sounds great, except Ryan paid $11.5 million when he bought it back in 2006.  Blame the housing market ... but we're guessing it's not going to make a dent in Ryan's wallet.

The sale became official this morning.  The new buyers are some rich English folk.

By the way, Ryan bought the house from Kevin Costner.  Kevin purchased it from Richard Dreyfuss.

Ryan and Julianne Hough are now living in Ellen's former mega-mansion, which he purchased for a cool $37.5 million.

The big winner in all of this ... Kurt Rappaport, who represented Ryan in the sale of his old home and the purchase of Ellen's estate.  Rappaport also repped Ellen in the sale.  So Kurt got a nice chunk of $50 million worth of real estate.  Not bad.

I assumed he lived in a hole at the bottom of a tree trunk. Who knew?

The pool isn't long enough. Otherwise I'd buy it.

"Ryan paid 11.5 mill...and sold it for 11 mill..."

Whoever would have guessed that having no real talent paid so well.

Thunder out.

I think for one person living in a place that big...the silence must be deafening. A castle does not a home make.
