Ellen DeGeneres Just Flipped Her Mansion to Which Techie Billionaire?

We were more than a little jealous when Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi purchased the Brody House in Holmby Hills, California, earlier this year for $40 million, but now we have someone else to be envious of — a very famous techie billionaire, to be exact. Ellen and Portia renovated the home and recently flipped it to Napster founder Sean Parker for a cool $55 million.

The home was built in 1949 by famed Modernist design leaders architect A. Quincy Jones, interior designer Billy Haines and landscape architect Garrett Eckbo — but what we really want to know is who was behind the ram doorknocker idea?

We've never seen a ram-shaped doorknocker before, but there's a first time for everything.

Don't you think this walkway looks a little like something out of a stylish Dr. Seuss book?

We really wish we were invited to one of Ellen and Portia's pool parties.
