Oprah Winfrey is cashing out of Montecito, selling her large ocean and mountain view estate in two separate transactions for about US$17 million.
While Winfrey’s longtime personal trainer and property manager, Bob Greene picked up the two small cottages for US$2.3 million in mid-August.
Winfrey initially purchased the 2.1-acre estate in early 2021 for US$10.5 million from New York hedge fund manager Fred Shuman and his wife Stephanie.
Built in 1998, the “Tuscan farmhouse” was sold the following year to the Shumans, who paid US$2.8 million.
The U-shaped structure includes four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one powder room in more than 371sq m of living space.
There’s also a small, detached guesthouse or standalone gym building on the heavily wooded property, which span more than an acre.
Aniston will also be able to enjoy grassy lawns, well-kept gardens, terraces for entertaining, numerous mature oak trees and a motor court that can easily accommodate 15 cars.
The long driveway is gated, and the house is invisible from the street.
