Gimme Shelter: Anne Heche and Ellen Degeneres

The ‘Six Days Seven Nights’ actress and her ex are selling their California home

Posted on

Brokedown Palace!
4 BR, 3 BTH house on 10-acre Ojai estate
Price: $2.75 million

Slipper-wearing Anne Heche won’t be showing up on this doorstep anymore. Ex-couple Heche and Ellen DeGeneres are selling this secluded retreat in California’s Ventura County, which they purchased in late 1998 to escape the intense glare of Hollywood. A 90-minute drive north of L.A., the expansive grounds contain avocado and citrus orchards as well as flower gardens, pool, spa, henhouse, and two livestock-free barns (one was reportedly used as an art studio). Barry Sloane, who has the listing at Sotheby’s in Beverly Hills, describes the spread as ”the perfect white country house.” As Ellen might say: Yep, it is.
