Celebrity Real Estate said in an article that DeGeneres transformed the farmhouse into the luxurious home it now is in just one year.

The huge compound comes fully equipped with 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 8 cottages, a yoga pavilion, 2 different barns and a rustic tree house.

Equestrian facilities on the estate include 6 stables, a dressage arena, a hay barn and more.

The property was put up in 2011 for US$16.5 million but was taken off the market in less than 10 months. DeGeneres is currently asking US$12.995 million for it.

In 2011, DeGeneres and De Rossi sold their Beverly Hills home for US$37 million. The buyer was none other than fellow TV host Ryan Seacrest for $37 million.
