Back in 2008 it was reported that Oprah’s best buddy, Gayle King had purchased the 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath apartment, but after a little digging it was revealed that the talk show queen herself had bought it, for a cool $7.1 million.
It’s unclear as to whether either Gayle or Oprah actually ever lived there, but, fast forward three years and the pricey pad is back on the market, for $7.9 million.
Oprah’s penthouse sits on the 36th floor of a Manhattan apartment block, named Place 57, and comprises of 2,530 square feet of wall-to-ceiling windowed space as well as a 768-square-foot terrace with breathtaking views of the city.
The apartment has a triangular shaped living room, a modern and sleek kitchen equipped with every modern gadget you could hope for, a separate dining area and two bedrooms. The master suite has three walk-in closets, a jetted tub and a sleek shower.
Not surprisingly, given her immense wealth, Winfrey is the owner of several high end properties. In addition to the New York penthouse she also owns a huge estate in tony Montecito, CA., a plantation in Hawaii, a duplex in downtown Chicago and houses and condos in Douglasville, GA., Franklin, TN. and Elmwood Park, Il.
If you fancy taking on Oprah’s pad you better be prepared to pay a hefty monthly mortgage. According to Zillow, with 20 percent down on the property a 30 year mortgage would cost you a whopping $29,115 a month.
