Portia can get the next vacation home.

We always like hearing about celebrity houses, so imagine our excitement when we learned Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi bought a $26.5 million estate in Montecito, Calif.! Hey, Portia had to spend her Netflix money from the resurgent Arrested Development somehow.

The 10,522-square-foot house -- if you can call it just a house -- is on 13 acres with an ocean view, six bedrooms, six bathrooms and nine fireplaces, TMZ says. It's just the latest real estate investment they've made, because they already own houses across L.A. in places like Beverly Hills and Hidden Valley.

Considering Ellen's really the one with all the cash in this relationship, we assume she took the lead with the agent. Maybe Portia decorated the guest cottage or something.
