Salt Hill House

This recently renovated estate has just been put on the market by American comedian and television host Ellen DeGeneres. Known as the Salt Hill House, the Balinese-inspired compound is spread throughout four volumes across 9-acres of oceanfront in Montecito, Santa Barbara, California. The impressive property has 10,700 square feet spread out across four different structures. The main house is just over 8,000 square feet, but there is also a guest house, fitness cabana and security office. All have floor-to-ceiling glazing that keep the interior connected to the landscape with sweeping views of the Pacific while sliding glass doors expand the inside to a sheltered terrace and infinity pool.
