Ellen DeGeneres (along with wife Portia de Rossi) has become well known for their secondary career as real estate mavens in California. The couple’s latest endeavor is the listing of their huge 9-acre property in Montecito, which the Los Angeles Times reports they’ve listed with an asking price of very nearly $40 million – a price that if matched by a buyer will result in a tidy profit compared to the $27 million they spent on most of the property last year.

You can take a look at Salt Hill in the video below, also from Sotheby’s. And if you just so happen to like what you see, you might be pleased to know that you now have an opportunity to purchase the whole spread for $39.9 million.
