One of the priceless real estate transactions in the history of Montecito, California occurred a few months ago between two veterans of the world of stand-up comedy, reports Wall Street Journal. A huge estate that belonged to Dennis Miller was sold to Ellen DeGenners for an impressive sum of $ 49 million.
Miller and wife Caroline Asseli-Miller regained the property in 2006, and in the years that followed, it became a fixture on Eslépy-Miller’s Instagram account, where she gave followers an occasional look at the influential property. It is built on more than four acres of land, spread over three different parcels before being combined together, which housed several different structures. The main attraction is the main house built in the South African Cape Dutch style, connected by a lily pond and a barn. This is no ordinary barn, however, designed for the property by architect Tom Kundig.
Aspley-Miller also made a habit of exposing some of the property’s natural features, including wildlife such as dragonflies, hummingbirds, and ducks, which are found in its large outdoor spread, including lots of gardens.
The sale reportedly took place in September of this year, but was completely off-market and the estate was never publicly listed. According to an anonymous source, Miller and his wife reportedly stayed for some time after the deal was closed.
The sale was just the latest big real estate deal that Dagenes and wife Portia de Rossi have recently joined, as they have become more and more known for their “flipping of the house” over the past several years. He has at least one more residence in Montekito, and last year he allegedly sold a property inspired by Bali’s distinctive architecture for a sum of $ 33.3 million.
