Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is the buyer of a $49 million estate in Montecito, Calif.,
one of the most expensive properties ever sold in the pricey Santa Barbara County community, according to two people familiar with the deal.
Ms. DeGeneres bought the property from Dennis Miller, comedian and political commentator, and his wife, former model Carolyn Espley-Miller, in late September. Records show the couple owned the property since 2006. They couldn’t be reached for comment.
The compound, which was not publicly listed for sale, includes three separate parcels of land totaling more than 4 acres and several structures, records show. Ms. Espley-Miller provided her Instagram followers with glimpses of the property over the years, showing off the South African Cape Dutch-style main house, a “barn” designed by Los Angeles architect Tom Kundig and a large lily pond.
She often posted about the wildlife on the property, including dragonflies, hummingbirds, ducks and a heron, as well as the extensive gardens.
“The garden is heaving with lavender, protea, bottlebrush, sweet peas & strawberries,” she wrote on her Instagram last year. “I’ve got 7 big almonds on my almond tree (a first!) and a ripe fig already. In just a few more days the white agapanthus & asparagus will be blooming.”
Ms. DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi are widely known to be investors in real estate and have long had a home in Montecito. They sold a Bali-inspired estate in the area for $33.3 million in November, according to a person familiar with the deal.
Ms. DeGeneres allowed the Millers to remain in the home for a time after the closing, according to a person familiar with the situation.
