Ellen De Generes and her wife Portia de Rossi listed their sprawling estate on Coldwater Canyon for sale at the price of $ 49 million. Ryan Seacrest got it for $ 37 million, certainly still a big amount of money. Apparently, this property consisting of four separate parcels of land accumulated over the years by spouses De Generes and Rossi seem to be worth it. The property practically covers an entire city block and houses a 9,200 square foot main house and a gym with a size that is comparable to that of a huge health club. Seacrest must be doing quite a bit of walking to cover the entirety of this property.
