If she follows form, she'll remodel, redecorate and sell in about 5 years.

2.3 acres for almost $40 million? I guess location is everything.

my 2 cents    

She is most likely a house flipper. However , in the shill to sell the houses, it is probably stated that Ellen owns it, the truth being she never lived in it.

Awesome house! It seems very open, and upscale, yet comfortable. It's really nice, but not over the top like some celeb homes. Hate it when celebrities buy these huge and ridiculous looking monstrocities that they call houses. 39 mil does seems VERY high though for this house though....

So much $$ on a house that the neighbors are so close she could reach out the window and shake their hand from their window. Thought celebs paid bug bucks for privacy.

Amazing home! I just don't know why 2 people need this much house. I guess when you have that much money you need something to spend it on. enjoy!!!

She could have built something better for half the cost. The grounds must be much better than what the pictures show. Her houses don't look like much from the outside, esp. the one she sold to Seacrest.

It's alright looking...until I saw the inside of the house, for that price I'd of thought the furniture would be nice looking, but to me....it's cheap looking and looks like something from back in the '60...s!!
