Ellen DeGeneres may be best known for her talk show and her role in “Finding Dory” and “Finding Nemo,” but the comedian really should be known for her house flipping.

After selling her Hollywood Hills home (for the second time) for $10 million in August, and listing her home near the Los Angeles Country Club for $7 million in October, she and her wife Portia de Rossi are now listing their grandest property yet; a 17-acre estate in Montecito, Santa Barbara for $45 million.

The couple bought the house in 2013 for $26.5 million, according to the Wall Street Journal, and put a lot of money into renovating it (including buying the two adjacent properties). They used stone excavated from the property to build an entertaining pavilion, which comes with a sun room, dining room and outdoor kitchen with a pizza kitchen.

Perched in the hills Santa Barbara, the main house is 10,500 square feet, and has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and two half bathrooms. There are nine fireplaces, 18-century tiles, rustic beams, many libraries, two swimming pools and a tennis court. [WSJ]
