Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's Romantic Santa Barbara Villa

When beloved talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, actress Portia de Rossi, first saw this elegant stone villa in the hills of Santa Barbara, they were immediately taken by the pastoral ambience of the Tuscan-like countryside around it – the gentle sunlight, the rugged stone and the reverence its construction had shown for the natural surroundings. “The house truly feels like it was built out of the landscape,” says DeGeneres. “It feels ancient, like it’s been there forever, like that hill was never without the house. This is a home that honours nature, and I love that.”
