Daytime host, comedian and actress Ellen DeGeneres has shelled out $21M for another California home. 

DeGeneres recently bought a Moorish-inspired spread in Santa Barbara County, California. Realtor.com reported that the building has a Villa Tragara’s design influence which comes from Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain.

The nearly 12,000-square-foot property, on 2.45 acres, asked as much as $35 million in 2019, according to reports at the time, meaning the 64-year-old got quite the deal.
