BEVERLY HILLS—Ryan Seacrest, radio personality, television host and producer, listed his Beverly Hills mansion for exactly $85 million. To pay, it is $395,274 a month, and a 20 percent down payment which amounts to $17 million. The property is located at 1196 Cabrillo Dr.
Ellen DeGeneres, comedian, television host, actress, writer, and producer, purchased the home from Max Mutchnick, co-creator of “Will & Grace” in 2007 for $29 million. Jennifer Aniston told Seacrest on the Golden Globes Red Carpet that she “coveted” this home. In 2012, Seacrest purchased the property from DeGeneres for $36.5 million, half of what he asked for.
The home has 7 bedrooms, 10 baths, and is built on 3.01 acres of land. It was first built in 1963 and the property type is a single family home. According to a 2011 feature in Architectural Digest, the compound was built by Buff & Hensman in the 1960s for the actor Laurence Harvey. It is a contemporary-styled compound, which was last sold for $ 36.5 million in 2012. Nearby schools include El Rodeo Elementary School (K-8), which is 1.9 miles from the property, and Beverly Hills High School, which is 2.3 miles from the house.
It is one of the most private and secluded estates, surrounded by greenery. It has a 9,000 square foot (four bedroom and 6 bathroom) main house, 2 guest houses, a pool with pool house, separate fitness facility, and underground garage.
There are also non-conventional rooms such as a home cinema, massage room, pond and gym. The property includes a wet bar, media room, an office, master suite, bath with a floor-to-ceiling window, and a gigantic stone tub. The property also offers city and ocean views. Seacrest currently hosts “Live with Kelly and Ryan” with Kelly Ripa on ABC and still serves as host for the reality competition series “American Idol” which now airs on ABC.
