Ellen DeGeneres’s House

Hollywood Talk Show Host and Comedian Ellen DeGeneres is the proud owner of the amazing 'Brody House', the place that is considered by most to be the ultimate of LA mid-century modern trophy-homes–and wow it is some trophy!

Ellen DeGeneres House

A vision of architectural modernism, the huge nine bedroom home is located on 2.3 acres in Holmby Hills, rubbing shoulders with Hugh Hefner’s famous–or infamous some might say–Playboy Mansion. Named the Brody House after its original owner, art aficionado Frances Lasker Brody, who commissioned the famed Los Angeles architect Archibald Quincy Jones to design it in 1949. Along with A. Quincy Jones, interior designer Billy Haines and landscape architect Garrett Eckbo were brought on board to complete the sophisticated LA masterpiece.

The established gardens are green and lush with huge majestic trees, and the surrounding outdoor patio areas soak up every available opportunity for enjoying the scenes of natural beauty.

The dream home was completed in 1951 and has been publicly heralded as a brilliant example of indulgent LA modernistic glamor without equal. Spanning a massive 11,511 square feet, the 39.8 million dollar home has glass walls and high vaulted ceilings that all contribute to its impressive and expansive feel.

The serene atrium is a well of light, and a place for relaxation in the warmth of the sun, under the shade of an old tree, perfect.
