Rent Oprah Winfrey’s apartment for $15,000/month

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.

Winfrey bought the sixth-floor property for $5.6 million in 2006, but never moved in. It was reported in Chicago Magazine that she was afraid of nosy neighbors peeping in. She tried selling it for $6 million beginning in June 2008, and withdrew the property from the market in January 2009.

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.
