Oprah Apartment – Oprah Winfrey is leasing her 4,607 square-foot Chicago apartment. The talk show host purchased the real estate, located in Chicago’s swanky Streeterville neighborhood a few years back. However, no one actually inhabited the place.
The going rate for this eight room Streeterville apartment for $15,000 a month.
Winfrey’s elegant crib is located in a Beau-Arts-style building designed by architect Benjamin Marshall. There are eight total rooms in the spread, including three bedrooms, three full baths, two half baths, as well as 10 foot ceilings, two fireplaces, a solarium, a wine room, and a formal dining room.
Potential renters can even look forward to Oprah as their neighbor, as well as their landlord. When in Chicago, she decamps to a 15,000-square-foot duplex condo just blocks away from this palatial apartment.
She paid $5.6 million dollars for the sixth-floor pad in 2006.
The actress ended her Chicago based talk show earlier this year and is spending most of her time in California in her $50 million estate in Montecito, Calif.
It was briefly listed for sale in 2008 for $6 million. According to the Tribune, Oprah still owns homes in Elmwood Park and Merrillville, Ind.
