Seven months ago, comedian talk-show star Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi listed their lavish Tuscan-style home in Montecito, California for sale.

It’s still on the market, for US$45 million ($57.6 million), but in the meantime DeGeneres has found something new.

And it’s a beauty. Mansion Global describes DeGeneres as a “serial house flipper”, and says property records show last week she bought a new house right on the beach at Carpinteria, in Santa Barbara County.
