WEA in the LA Times

Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, known for her love of fixing up and selling houses, has listed her adjacent units in a Westwood condo building for close to $16 million.

She bought the two Wilshire Corridor units for about that amount in July after selling her primary residence on the Westside to Napster co-founder Sean Parker for $55 million.

The smaller of the two condos, which are for sale separately or as a pair, has an elevator opening directly to the unit, stone and wide-plank oak flooring, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a half-bath. Priced at $7.495 million, it has 3,813 square feet of living space.

The larger condo contains 4,158 square feet and is listed for $8.495 million. There are two bedrooms and three full bathrooms.

Together the units take up an entire floor with vistas taking in the cityscape and nearby golf course.

The digs appear to have been only temporary as DeGeneres and her spouse, Portia de Rossi, prepare to move back to a property she owned once before in Hollywood Hills West.

Besides her ongoing talk show, the Emmy-winning DeGeneres will host “Ellen’s Design Challenge” on HGTV next year.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency is the listing agent for the condominiums.
