When we found out today that Ellen and Portia were selling their gorgeous Santa Monica ranch, we couldn't help but get a little sad. You might recall that the ranch, featured in the May issue of Elle Decor, is an absolute stunner. Purchased in 2009, it took budding interior designer Ellen just one year to turn the eight-cabin compound into an editorial-worthy residence. Apparently, Ellen has a real estate itch that needs to be scratched, so the couple is moving to a $26 million villa in nearby Montecito. We can't wait to see what Ellen does with their new place, but in the meantime, let's take a look back at the 26-acre property that is currently on the market for a cool $11 million.
