Architectural Digest features two cover girls this November: Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, who share their Beverly Hills home with the magazine. The 9,500-square-foot home was built by renowned architects Buff & Hensman and later expanded by interior designer Melinda Ritz. Check out some preview images from the couple's home, and find out some fascinating facts about their gorgeous property.

  • Former residents of the home include Joan Collins and the couple’s friend Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick
  • Ellen and Portia were married in the home's media room.
  • De Rossi takes advantage of the home's pool by exercising in it with lap swimming.
  • De Rossi notes that they knew they wanted the home immediately: "We just knew before we even walked through the gate."
  • Tommy and Kathleen Clements, Cliff Fong, and Harrison Holman were among the Los Angeles dealers and decorators who helped craft the look of the home.
  • DeGeneres also purchased two neighboring properties, replacing one with a pond and several dozen carob, pear, and oak trees.
