Ellen Degeneres - Ellen DeGeneres buys $40 million home

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have splashed out almost $40 million on a new home.

The US chat show host, who is a well-known architecture and design enthusiast, and the 'Arrested Development' actress, 40, paid $39.888 million for their lavish new estate, The Brody House, in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles.

The high profile couple's new 13,511 square-foot abode features six bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a pool, gym, spa, tennis court and sits on 2.3 acres of landscaped gardens, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

The house, which is located next to the Playboy bunnies' home, underwent extensive renovations over the past two years and is considered one of the most iconic modern properties in all of LA.

Ellen, 55, who has a large property portfolio, recently made a tidy profit by selling her nearby estate for $21 million after buying it for $17.4 million last year.

She sold their equestrian ranch in Thousand Oaks, California, for $10.85 million in September.

The power couple, who also purchased a new mansion in Montecito, California, for $26.5 million last May, also sold their penthouse in Beverly Hills for $843,900 late last year.

The duo, who were married in August 2008, were forced to deny speculation their marriage was in trouble in December after rumours surfaced they were about to split.
