Ariana Grande is making big moves in the real estate market right now. The pop star just shelled out another $6.75 million after recently purchasing a $13.7 million mansion in the Hollywood Hills. Porter House, a 5,500-square-foot historic home in Montecito, California, boasts two bedrooms and three bathrooms. And you’ll never guess who the previous owners are: none other than talk show tycoon
Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi! The famous couple flipped the home by modernizing the interior, while still paying homage to the original bones. Click through to see the Thank You, Next singer’s beautiful new residence!
The living room, along with the rest of the home, features amazing vaulted ceilings and handsome wood panelling, and is furnished with warm leathers to match the barn’s vibe.
The vintage furniture found throughout the home was all selected by Ellen herself. The curvaceous seating adds a contemporary touch to the otherwise rustic space.
Another smaller living room is kept very cozy with a wood burning fireplace and velvet couch and armchairs in a muted sage hue, which connects to the property’s lush surroundings.
The home features an abundance of fireplaces (five in total!) for roasting marshmallows in the summer or curling up with a good book in the winter.
One of two stunning kitchens features a glass-fronted refrigerator and tons of counter space for entertaining and cooking. Ellen and Portia transformed the old kitchen with more up-to-date amenities.
There is plenty of seating just off the kitchen, thanks to a row of bar stools and a large dining table for sharing a casual meal with friends.
A formal dining room is embellished with warm wood accents, from the natural wood table to the exposed beams.
The second kitchen is a lot darker but just as decadent. Well-placed lighting makes the space feel warm and moody.
A glass door and sunroom with large windows invite plenty of natural sunlight into the home for a seamless indoor-outdoor vibe.
The principal bedroom is lofted and overlooks the second living room. Vaulted ceilings make the space feel even more grand.
A freestanding stone tub and natural wood accents make the ensuite bathroom feel spa-like. It’s a perfect place for the singer to soak her stresses away after a long day at the studio.
The ensuite bathroom features a double vanity, large mirror and rustic stone shower.
A large laundry room is equipped with all the latest gadgets.
A fairytale-like backyard garden feels very English.
A stone pathway and large round table are perfect for al fresco dining in the summer.
Further into the backyard is a large seating area that is ideal for entertaining while taking in the lush garden’s surroundings.
