After purchasing a $26 million seaside home in Montecito, California, Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi have decided to sell their other property. CeleBuzz reported that the property is located 45 minutes outside of Los Angeles and is listed at $12.995 million. The couple's Hidden Valley Ranch covers 26 acres of land and is known as a nature lover's paradise.
In fact, this luxury compound is known for its high-quality equestrian-friendly landscape. According to the news source, the home and its many additional buildings are intended to promote spending time outdoors. For example, there are eight farmhouse cottages that are all styled with vintage and contemporary features to create a cozy atmosphere and allow people to stay on the property, yet still create a sense of privacy. 
A number of sustainable finished were added to the property to decrease its carbon footprint and to create a healthy, happy natural landscape for everyone to enjoy. A windmill has been included in the design of the home, for both the atmosphere and its energy generation capabilities, reported the news source.
A radiant floor heating system has been included in the design of the structure as well. The property has been designed for entertaining, which is why a radiant floor heating system is incredibly ideal indoors. The consistent delivery of heat promotes comfort in the living spaces - perfect for parties and casual family evenings. 
In addition to creating an exceptionally comfortable living space, the technology also allows a homeowner to reduce his or her operational costs each month. The unit uses less energy to create the same air temperature in a space than traditional heating delivery systems.
