Producer Robert Cort Sells to Ellen and Portia and Buys a New Palace of His Own

Robert Cort, the mega-successful Hollywood producer behind films like Runaway Bride, Jumanji, Mr. Holland’s Opus, 3 Men and A Baby and many, many more, has just purchased another spectacular property in Beverly Hills after selling his former home to Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi last month for $17,400,000. Ellen and Portia needed a new place to call home after selling their spectacular compound to the busiest man in Hollywood, Ryan Seacrest.

Degeneres and de Rossi closed on their new home on Hillcrest Road in Beverly Hills on May 18, 2012, and Cort quickly decamped to a stunning new home just up the road in the 90120. Located on North Linden Drive, Cort’s new Southern California palace has 7 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms and is a spacious 10,124 square feet. According to public records, he paid $10,450,483 and closed on the deal on June 5, 2012.

His new estate is a beautifully-maintained, custom built home, designed by Peter Choate.  The large home is sited on a 19,000+ square foot with spectacular grounds. The main residence features a master suite with a fireplace and a huge balcony overlooking lush landscaping, offering complete privacy. All-in-all there are 7 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms and a gym, including maids quarters and an extremely large family room equipped with wet bar and an oversized fireplace. The estate also features a beautiful paneled library and a basement, perfect for a movie screening or game room. The gated groups also include 2 two-car garages, a circular drive and a gated motor court.

Richard Minchenberg of the Westside Estate Agency was the listing agent.
