Ellen DeGeneres just expanded her real estate portfolio … scooping up a home in Beverly Hills.
Our real estate sources tell us the talk show host dropped a cool $8.5 million for the 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom home.
The place is 4,614 square feet and it looks like a fixer-upper. Real talk … the home looks dated. It was built way back in 1961 and has been through at least one renovation.
Ellen closed escrow on the place Friday. It’s got a pool, fire pit, chef’s kitchen and lush gardens. Some of the rooms are even heated by furnaces.
She’ll have some famous neighbors … among them, Adele and Cameron Diaz.
It’s the second home purchase in as many months for Ellen … as we reported, she threw down $2.9 million back in June for a 2-bedroom pad in Santa Barbara.
Ellen’s pretty familiar with Bev Hills real estate … she recently sold a 2-story monster of a property she bought from Adam Levine.
Celeb realtor Kurt Rappaport held the listing on Ellen’s latest purchase.
