You can now take a glimpse into Ellen DeGeneres’ and Portia Rossi’s $45 million Santa Barbara villa.

Ellen and Portia are selling it on because they don’t spend enough time in the Santa Barbara hills, according to the LA Times.

The talk show host, known for her love of redecorating and home improvement, and her wife bought the property in 2013.

Back then, they paid $26.5 million for the home which they used as a weekend retreat – now it’s back on the market for $45 million.

And they’ve really put some love into the six-bedroom Italian-style hilltop estate.

The kitchen is a large chef's kitchen

Surrounded by towering eucalyptus trees, it sits on about 16.88 acres of land.

Famed architect Wallace Frost designed and built the villa in 1934.

It is inspired by Frost’s time in Italy and emulates classic 17th century Italian architecture to create an atmosphere of Old World romance, according to the Sotheby’s listing.

Frost paid attention to every detail, from using 18th-century Italian tiles and vintage light fixtures to the wide wood-flooring plans and a classic barrel-tiled roof.

The master bedroom features its own sitting room

But apart from its history, the estate boasts a whole host of modern amenities, spread over plenty of space.

Apart from the six bedrooms, it also comes with six full and two additional partial bathrooms.

Nine fireplaces can be found around the property, while large floor-to-ceiling windows allow you to enjoy the stunning view from just about anywhere in the house.

If you don’t feel like using the large formal dining room, there is a cozy breakfast area with direct access to one of the terraces.

Outside, the comfort doesn’t stop. The gardens are colorful, and there is an alfresco dining area tucked away under mature trees as well as a Roman-style pool.

The lap pool and Jordan Hall

More recently, a lap swimming pool and Jordan Hall, a modern entertainment pavilion, have been added, as well as a tennis court.
