The home sold for $13.5 million

The television host is a fan of flopping homes, and has reportedly bought and sold more than 20 in the last 20 years.

The pair have been buying up real estate in the popular coastal town outside Santa Barbara for several years.

They also recently purchased a 12-000 square foot home Villa Tragara for $21 million, and they own the $14.3 million Rancho San Leandro estate right next door to Oprah Winfrey’s “Promised Land” estate, and a $49 million compound.
