Comedian, talk show host, and admitted interior design junkie Ellen DeGeneres has listed her Tuscan-style Montecito home for $45 million.

The property is listed with Sotheby’s International Realty and features six bedrooms, six baths, nine fireplaces, a media room, multiple libraries, a living room, a formal dining room, and a large kitchen. It also includes a lap swimming pool and tennis court.
