It's hard to argue that anyone but talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, 60, is TV's biggest star.

With 3.9 million fans dancing along with her show every day, she's the undisputed queen of daytime TV.

And she's just found her new castle, a $15 million Beverly Hills mansion that's the total package.

If you're curious what that much money gets you in L.A.'s most glamorous neighborhood, you might be interested in these photos.

Ellen's New Home Has It All

The home's curb appeal and 90210 zip code weren't the only attraction for DeGeneres and her wife, actress Portia de Rossi, 45.

It also has a celebrity pedigree, and was owned by 1960s TV actress Marjorie Lord until just a few years ago.

While it sold for a measly $8 million back then, the mansion - originally built in 1962 - has been given a major facelift by its most recent owners.

Let's take it from the top: this 5,1000-square foot property has a killer view of the Los Angeles skyline and the ocean, with gorgeous outdoor spaces that are connected to a trendy and modern interior.

Almost all of the exterior-facing walls feature floor-to-ceiling windows to take advantage of the location, while the back doors open to create a huge indoor-outdoor space.

But when the couple aren't lounging poolside, they can enjoy all the luxuries of their deluxe living spaces.

The kitchen features a skylight and a massive marble island with built-in grill top.

Meanwhile, there's a wet bar in the combined dining room/living room that makes entertaining a breeze.

But this home's star feature are the five bedrooms and five bathrooms, which each open onto a private courtyard while the master bedroom is linked to the pool deck.

That means you can roll out of bed or step out of the shower at any time and soak up the sun - that's California living.

Ellen and Portia: House Flippers

A home like this would be enough for just about anyone, but DeGeneres and de Rossi have built up a reputation as Hollywood's busiest real estate developers.

Variety reports that the pair have bought and sold more than a dozen homes in Southern California over the last 10 years, usually for a hefty profit.

Case in point: this new purchase comes after the couple let go of another Beverly Hills mansion for a $19 million profit. Not bad, considered they bought it just three years ago.

The pair also sold a nearly 17 acre estate to Netflix head honcho Ted Sarandos this year, and are still holding on to another $19 million dream home in Carpinteria, California.

So obviously these two are keeping busy, but is there any chance they might settle down and start a family in one of those luxury homes? Not likely, says DeGeneres.

"When I was younger, I really wanted to have a baby — I thought I would adopt. I never thought I would have a baby, but I thought I would want kids," she recently told Jerry Seinfeld on his talk show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. "[Portia] doesn't want kids."

"But," the star joked, "she wants lots more horses, which I don't."

Despite not seeing eye-to-eye on that point, it's obvious there's no trouble in paradise for these two.

They're celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary this year, and de Rossi recently surprised DeGeneres with an awesome 60th birthday gift: her own gorilla sanctuary.
