Ellen DeGeneres Unloads L.A. Luxury Condo (EXCLUSIVE)

One of the two fancy-pants condos that design-savvy daytime-chat-show queen Ellen DeGeneres owns at the 24-story Beverly West building overlooking the prestigious Los Angeles Country Club has come up for sale for the third time, at a pinch under $7 million. The current price tag is a good bit above the $6.2 million that property records show she paid for the just-over-3,800-square-foot unit in the summer of 2014; yet it’s a hefty amount below the not-quite-$8.5-million asking price the two-bedroom and 2.5-bath apartment was saddled with when it was first flipped back on the market six months later.

Wide-plank, imported-wood floors in the foyer switch to flannel-gray hand-cut stone tiles in the lofty combination living/dining/cooking space, where floor-to-ceiling windows are fitted with discreet shades that scroll down from soffits at the touch of a button. At one end of the room, the kitchen offers a gigantic island, dollar-bill-green slab-stone countertops, black-lacquer cabinetry, and a comprehensive collection of name-brand appliances that includes double ovens, a built-in coffee/espresso maker, and a full-height wine fridge.

Bedrooms have custom-fitted closets, and bathrooms feature walls of mirrors and floor-to-ceiling windows with open city views. The building offers its well-heeled residents 24-hour doormen and valet services, a top-grade security apparatus, a fitness center with a Pilates room, and a saltwater swimming pool and spa.

DeGeneres and her wife, “Scandal” actress Portia de Rossi, additionally own a 10,000-square-foot Tuscan villa on 17 acres in Santa Barbara that they bought in 2013 for $26.5 million, and they recently sold a Marmol Radziner-renovated residence in the Hollywood Hills for $9.9 million to Calvin Klein co-founder Barry Schwartz, and moved into a 1960s contemporary at the end of a long, gated drive in a Beverly Hills they scooped up in late 2015 for a whisper below $16 million.
