No two celebrities have been as prolific in the real estate market in recent years as Adam Levine and Ellen DeGeneres. So, it’s fitting that the two have come together on a deal of their own.
Levine and wife Behati Prinsloo have sold their estate in Beverly Hills to DeGeneres and her wife, actress Portia de Rossi, for $42.5 million.
Built in 1933 and recently renovated, the stately two-story has more than 10,000 square feet of living space, custom steel-framed windows and two kitchens. Other features include multiple wet bars, a screening room and a gym. A total of five bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, which includes a guesthouse, rounds out the living space.
Outside, the landscaped estate has space for entertaining in the form of a paver patio with a built-in barbecue and a fire pit.
An oval-shaped swimming pool sits below the patio area. Elsewhere on the acre-plus property is a tennis court and a putting green.
With the purchase, DeGeneres and De Rossi are the latest to add celebrity pedigree to the property. In addition to Levine and Prinsloo, the traditional-style home was previously owned by “Will & Grace” creator Max Mutchnick. Before Mutchnick, the estate was home to tennis star Pete Sampras and actress Bridgette Wilson.
Levine, 40, recently announced that he would not return as a coach on the singing competition series “The Voice,” on which he had appeared since 2010. He has won three Grammys as the lead vocalist for the pop-rock group Maroon 5.
DeGeneres, 61, has won multiple Emmys for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” which premiered in 2003. Last year she co-created and produced the show “Little Big Shots” with Steve Harvey.
De Rossi, 46, has television credits that include the legal drama “Ally McBeal” and the sitcom “Arrested Development.”
