I’m pretty sure everyone has heard of Ellen DeGeneres. She has been making people laugh for quite a while now. First with her television sitcom Ellen, and now with her very popular, daytime talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Ellen loves her comedy, but there is another interest that she is very passionate about – interior decorating. So much so that Ellen has personally decorated seven properties worthy of a coffee-table book. In 2015, she released a book that showcases these homes, simply titled Home.

One of the homes featured in the book is a 26-acre horse ranch located just north of Los Angeles.

She bought the ranch with her wife Portia de Rossi, and the two of them renovated the ranch together.

The magnificent piece of property has eight individual cabins, several barns, and, of course, horse stables.

The property was a little neglected, so Ellen and Portia had their work cut out for them.  People assumed that it would take many years to get this ranch in shape, but it actually only took 12 short months.

Ellen and Portia lived in every cabin as they decorated and restored them one by one.

When one cabin was finished, they would move in and begin work on the next.

Ellen says, “When we were there instead of in the city, this really felt like our home away from home. I have to say, the ranch has been one of my favorite projects to date.”
