Oprah Winfrey’s 4,607-square-foot Chicago co-op apartment in a 1913 Beaux Arts building is now available to rent for $15,000 a month. What exactly does $15,000 in rent fetch these days on Lake Shore Drive? Views of Lake Michigan, from the library and master bedroom, for one thing.
For another, that master bedroom is a whopping 1,200 square feet in size, and includes a his-and-her bath. There are also two other bedrooms, 3.2 baths, a solarium, a gourmet custom kitchen, a butler’s pantry, a wine room, and a two-car garage.
This co-op is but a small part of Oprah’s real estate collection. Winfrey also owns residences nearby in Chicago’s Water Tower Place, and in Elmwood Park, as well as in Merrillville, Ind., Montecito, Calif., an estate in Maui, Hawaii, to name a few.
