Oprah Buys $28.8M Horse Farm At An Auction
Oprah Winfrey is on a real estate roll these days. Just months ago she purchased a high-tech ski home with a wine mine and now, an equestrian farm in Montecito, California. The acclaimed media mogul and recent Weight Watchers investor purchased the “once in a lifetime” property – that hasn’t been on the market in 30 years – for a whopping $28.8 million.
The 23-acre Seamair Farm Estate features a 4,750-square-foot main house with four bedrooms, five bathrooms, four fireplaces and a pool. The land also offers lots of homegrown produce, such as a two-acre avocado grove and citrus trees, as well as a fish-filled pond and two functioning private wells.
The property is equipped with all of the conveniences needed for a modern equestrian including stables, a horse trainer’s house and acres of flat farmland. Oprah, however, opted out of keeping the horses, E! News reports. They did not come with the purchase of the home and land.
Oprah already owns a 42-acre estate in Montecito and will have plenty of celebrity neighbors to keep her company such as Ellen DeGeneres, Jeff Bridges and Drew Barrymore.
