Hollywood power couple Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi have spent more than four years—and many millions of dollars—completing this Beverly Hills compound. The buying spree started when Ellen picked up the 9,000-square-foot main house in April of 2007 for a heady $29M. Not content with neighbors eyeing their property, the couple shelled out another $19M for adjacent mansions over the years, converting some into guest space and simply leveling the others. But now that Degeneres and De Rossi have tired of their palatial estate, will they see any return on their almost $50M investment? They sure hope to. The Real Estalker has it on good authority that the main house alone is asking $49M, while the entire compound has a whisper price of $60M.
