Ellen DeGeneres’s Montecito home hit the market with starting price of $45 million.

The 1930s Italian style villa is 10,500 square-feet and was recently modernized by DeGeneres and her partner, Portia de Rossi.

The modernization includes six bedrooms, eight baths, nine fireplaces, multiple libraries, a formal room, a marble-wrapped chef’s kitchen, an indoor-outdoor entertaining pavilion, a lap pool, and sunken championship tennis court. With the home stretching over 16.88 acres, DeGeneres and Rossi also installed a state-of-the-art irrigation, mechanical, electronic and security system.

The villa was originally designed by architect Wallace Frost. He designed the home in a 17th-century Italian theme, inspired by a trip he took to Italy. Decades following Frost’s creation, architectural designer John Saladino restored the property, who later sold it to DeGeneres and Rossi.
