After two years on the market and a price cut, Ryan Seacrest’s home has sold. The “American Idol” host (as well as producer, radio and TV personality) first listed the home in 2010 for $14.95 million and then decided to take it off the market for a year.

When he did relist the home, he listed it pretty privately — releasing just one photo of the home publicly. All other interior shots were password protected on the Westside Estate Agency website. That’s one way to weed out the paparazzi.

Seacrest’s home has some deep Hollywood pedigree. It was previously owned by Kevin Costner, from whom Seacrest purchased the home for $11.5 million in April 2006. According to the Los Angeles Times, Costner bought the home from Oscar-winning actor Richard Dreyfuss in 1995 for $2.7 million. The Mediterranean mansion has also been featured in Architectural Digest and was decorated by famed designer Jeff Andrews.

The 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom, 8,172-square-foot Hollywood Hills home  is certainly up to celebrity standards with a swimming pool, guest house, detached garage, tennis courts, Los Angeles views and extensive landscaping.

Despite the home’s storied past, Seacrest was ready to move on to a pretty spectacular custom home owned by none other than Ellen DeGeneres and listed for a whopping $49 million.

He bought DeGeneres’ home in May 2012 and has likely already moved into the nearly city-block-sized property.
