Can we all be Oprah when we grow up?
Then we, too, can earn a cool $13.8 million for tweeting about bread, and then spend almost $29 million ($28,850,000 to be exact) at auction for a sprawling 23-acre property in Montecito.
The media mogul has done both in the past 30-odd days alone, so you could say her start to 2016 is better than all of the rest of us combined.
According to Sage Auctions, the Seamair Farm property is basically a little slice of heaven:
"First time on the market in nearly 40 years! Seamair Farm is one of the largest properties in Montecito, CA – over 23 acres on two separate parcels, in the heart of Montecito. This once-in-a-lifetime property is a rare blend of privacy and convenience to all that Montecito has to offer. It is bordered on the north by a 40+ acre world-class estate, and on the east by a 44 acre dedicated preserve. While it is tucked away and private, it is also close to all Montecito shopping, dining, parks, Montecito Union School, and the beach! The main home was designed by renowned California lifestyle architect Cliff May. The estate offers TWO private wells, plus two Montecito water meters and equestrian facilities surrounded by sprawling fruit orchards, and flat, usable land."
Sounds truly divine!
Although the farm also came fully equipped with stables and horses, Miz Winfrey wasn't interested in the horses and they were not included in the sale.
That's okay, we're sure there'll be a lot of other ways in which she can get use out of all that land!
And according to Sage Auctions owner Marty Rogers, the 62-year-old former talk show host thoroughly inspected the area before bidding:
"Obviously, she is a very smart buyer and does have an amazing vision for this property. She had a number of experts inspect different aspects of the property and paid extensive due diligence to the property package we provided."
Well, duh! She's freakin' OPRAH!!!
She knows what she's doing.
Shoot us a housewarming party invite sometime, girl! Ha!
