Oprah Buys $14M Colorado Mansion With A “Wine Mine”
Oprah Winfrey just bought a high-tech ski home in Telluride, Colorado for $14 million – and yes, it’s grand. The media mogul purchased the home fully furnished from tech entrepreneur and African art collector Bob Wall, who spent nearly five years having it designed and built.
Set on the slope side of Mountain Village, the 3.25 acre home has everything from a seven-person hot tub to a faux mining car that connects the mansion with a nearby ski trail. But what really sets this property apart from any other real estate listing is the 56-foot-long “wine mine,” which holds 1,600 bottles of wine. Sounds perfect for winding down after a long day on the slopes, don’t you think? Click through to take a peek inside Oprah’s luxe winter getaway!
Built in 2001, the home features five bedrooms, six baths, a sauna, guesthouse and a turret-style tower with 360-degree views.
The great room is kept neutral with modern furnishings, while African art and sculptures add pops of color. Large windows act as wall murals, overlooking the surrounding woods.
An observation deck 35-feet above ground – which sways in the treetops – includes a fire pit.
Wood-panelled ceilings with pot lights brighten up the kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances and teak cabinetry.
The master bedroom has a minimalist, organic feel with earthy tones and a few African sculptures.
A circular limestone bathtub takes center stage in the bathroom, and is equipped with a system that maintains the water temperature for perfectly heated soaks.
With views of the mountains, this home office and walkout balcony is a dream.
Complete with a home theater, pool table and bar, the media room is the hub for entertainment.
One of the home’s defining features, a 56-foot-long mining tunnel, holds 1,600 bottles of wine and features an antique ore cart.
