This week a Montecito home traded from one Hollywood powerhouse to another. Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres sold her home to Netflix executive Ted Sarandos for $34 million. That’s roughly $5 million more than DeGeneres and her wife, actress Portia de Rossi, paid for it in 2013. The estate stretches across 17 acres and has a main house built in the 1930s to resemble a centuries-old farmhouse, complete with stone walls and exposed wood ceiling beams. There’s also a tennis court, pool and a guest house.

Ed Fishman, a game show producer and entertainment veteran, relisted his pad in Malibu for nearly $24 million, reflecting a $4 million hike from his original ask. Spanning 6,100 square feet, the two-story home features five bedrooms and four bathrooms.The double-lot, oceanfront residence also comes equipped with a koi pond, a wine cellar, music room and an elevator that services the garage and basement. Eytan Levin of 4 Malibu Real Estate shares the listing with Ellen Francisco of Coldwell Banker, his previous broker.

Nearby, a Malibu home belonging to the widow of Michael Landon, the late star and producer behind “Little House on the Prairie,” came on the market for $18 million. Cindy Landon, the property owner, is selling her 6,900-square-foot home, which includes five bedrooms and six bathrooms. The recently renovated home also features beachfront access, a koi pond and garden, Mansion Global reported. Landon purchased the home on Seafield Drive for $7.5 million in 2015, property records show. Her son, Sean Landon of Coldwell Banker, has the listing.

Meanwhile, actor Dennis Quaid is listing his pad in the Pacific Palisades for $6.5 million. The 6,100-square-foot residence has six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Amenities include a 10-car motor court, guest quarters, chef’s kitchen and massive stone fireplace, the Los Angeles Times reported. Quaid is known for his roles in “Vantage Point,” “Parent Trap” and “The Day After Tomorrow.” Chris Hicks at the Agency has the listing.
