    UPDATED: The three-acre-plus Beverly Hills compound includes a 9,200-square-foot main house.


    In one of the largest Los Angeles-area real estate deals of the year, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest is buying talk show host Ellen DeGeneres' Beverly Hills compound for close to its $49 million asking price, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The deal is expected to close this week, according to a source with knowledge of the transaction.

    Another source close to the transaction said the sale is for far less than the asking price. While the exact price is not known, it will become public once the transaction is recorded with the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk.

    The nine-bedroom property includes a 9,200-square-foot modern residence, two guesthouses and a separate three-bedroom house. It is located on a private street in north Beverly Hills.


    The houses and guest houses are situated on more than three acres, and the grounds include a swimming pool and large pond. DeGeneres assembled the compound during the past five years or so by combining four separate properties.

    The one-story main house previously was owned by Will and Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick, who sold it to DeGeneres in 2007 for $29 million. Prior to Mutchnick, the main residence was owned by film and TV composer Jerry Herman. It was designed by noted architects Buff & Hensman for actor Laurence Harvey (The Manchurian Candidate, Room at the Top).

    DeGeneres, host of the syndicated talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show, put the compound on the market in May 2011 for $60 million but later reduced the asking price. A source said she fielded multiple offers on the property.

    Both Seacrest and DeGeneres are being represented by Kurt Rappaport of Beverly Hills-based residential real estate brokerage Westside Estate Agency.

    TMZ first reported the deal.

    Ellen is making "Beaucoup" bucks. Syndicated talks shows are a license to print money.

    I actually find it disturbing that Ellen is making this kind of money.

    I think Howard is already way below bottom with the reconciliations of Rosie O'Donnell and Kathie Lee. Going on Leno wouldn't be as bad.

    it's kids' stuff compared to howard's 16,000 sq ft monstrosity and seems to be in scale with the surrounding terrain and landscaping.
    howard's "country home" sticks out like a big swollen sore thumb and overpowers it's property and placement on the ocean.

    big fail for ellen and seacrest.

    Remember this next time one of these douchebags says you should donate to their "cause" de jour.
