Ellen DeGeneres made quick work of the Beverly Hills home she just put on the market … but she didn’t cash in quite like she probably hoped.
The talk show host unloaded the massive, secluded property she bought just 2 years ago from Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine, for a whopping $47 million … but she was asking for way more than that.
As we first told you … Ellen listed the 10,000 square-foot mansion for $53.5 mil just over a month ago, which would have netted her a decent profit because she and her wife, Portia de Rossi, purchased it from Adam for about $45 mil.
Instead, it’s more like a break-even transaction … but we’re told DeGeneres went ahead with it anyway because she spends very little time in L.A. outside of shooting her show. She’s now living full-time up in Montecito.
As for the new buyer — represented by Brian Lane & Bob Safai of Madison Residential — they just scored a gorgeous, ivy-covered estate with a resort-style pool, outdoor kitchen and pizza oven, fire pit, dining room bar, 50-foot living room with stone fireplace, indoor gym, spa and a guest house.
There’s also a sunken tennis court, as the home used to also be owned by tennis legend Pete Sampras.
Celeb realtor Kurt Rappaport held the listing.
