Ellen DeGeneres Got Staged!

This article was in the Google Alerts for Home Stagers. How did we miss it?

I am decluttering my email today and just happened to open this alert from way back when and it is the best alert I have to date. What a great job that must have been for some lucky stager!  I'm available for this kind of project and I let them know.

Ellen's Montecito Mansion, Estate of the Day


Like Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres has a lavish Montecito getaway house but unlike Oprah, Ellen is on the move. She and her partner Portia Di Rossi have put their Montecito home on the market. This beautiful home was built in 1926 by George Washington Smith who designed many lovely homes in the Santa Barbara, Calif. area. The house was renovated a few years back before Ellen bought it less than six months ago. The estate has a four-bedroom main house that includes a 1,300-square-foot master suite, a dining room with a curved stairway, a wine cellar, billiards room, a library and an office. The property also has a guesthouse, a studio, a tennis court and a pool/spa. According to Berg Properties, Ellen also recently sold a 20-acre estate at 2710 Roundup Road in Santa Ynez, Calif., for $3,050,000 and sold a 119.8-acre agricultural property in Santa Ynez for an undisclosed price. Is the house worth $9 million more than it was just six months ago? Probably not but it's lovely just the same. The home is listed at $24 million. After the jump, check out the staging on the home: They set out lemonade in one shot and watermelon in one another.

Craig, do you mean the lemonade wasn't really necessary to sell the estate? Nice to see you fluttering by.

We can dream! Or go into show biz, or marry up? Oh, snap out of it Sheron and just decorate them! Who wants to clean all that woodwork!

$24 million - thats all?  Gee, let me get my checkbook.

Although a beautiful home in a gorgeous area, I too am dissapointed in the Staging.  IMHO there is way too many knick-knacks and too much clutter & small pieces.  All I see is the stuff, not the house.

Hopefully Ellen will talk about it on TV!

Sheron, the whole point of that house is that YOU don't clean it....it's why you have the maids, butler's and cooks..did I miss anyone???  Chauffeur...Hmmmmmm, what else?

Kym - I don't know if it has sold. If I get a chance, I am sure I can find out. And the faux food and drinks, exactly, based on all the negative posts of late about the tackiness around using faux anything in a faux everything business...some people just run out of good things to say ;-)

Good find!  I would have flown all the way from Charleston to help with that staging!  I LOVE Ellen (and her home is stunning)! 

On another note, I think we are safe to use faux food if it is good enough for this posh pad.  I think that was a cake in the kitchen too....

The closest I have come to decorating for the rich and famous was Miss Arizona and for the author of Reganomics, although I did style Carol Burnetts wigs for her show ;-) It would be fun to put together a DREAM TEAM for the rich and famous...in and out leaving them razzled and dazzled!

What a fabulous house.  I would love to know how much it sells for.  I would really love the opportunity to walk around the grounds in person...wouldn't that be exciting.

Very nice place and it should be for that price. I think I will pass on buying it - no stable for my horses!

Thanks for the update if the house sold or not...I thought it did.  I Tivo Ellen daily, go onto youtube or her website and there is a great walk thru of the house by Ellen.  I do know she is pretty settled in her new place, also buying the home next door (for more land) and you can watch her actually demolishing this house. New House is SWEET!
