Check Out The Beautiful Multimillion Property Oprah Winfrey Just Bought at a Bargain From ‘The Big Lebowski’ Actor Jeff Bridges

It looks like media mogul Oprah Winfrey is set to take over Montecito, California as she further expands the properties she owns in the scenic celebrity home paradise. America’s favorite talk show host reportedly recently snagged a ranch that once belonged to veteran actor Jeff Bridges.

Growing Montecito Holdings

The four-acre ranch’s main house was designed by architect James Osborne Craig

Winfrey bought her celebrity neighbors sprawling property for $6.85 million, which is just a bit less than its initial price tag. ‘The Big Lebowski’ actor originally wanted just under $8 million when the ranch was put on the market in April of this year. The four-acre estate is the host’s third property in the star-studded area.

It can be remembered that Winfrey already owns a large home estate dubbed ‘the Promised Land’ in Montecito. She purchased the property back in 2001 for a whopping $50 million. More than a decade later, she added the Seamair Farm to her growing and impressive real estate collection. The farm was bought for $29 million.

Stunning Ranch

The main house has five bedrooms as well as five and a half baths. Its current style is a mix between up-to-date furnishings and its original historic touches. The home comes complete with everything one may need to live in comfort and luxury from an eat-in breakfast room to a recording studio to a private tower study, which opens up to a roof terrace. What more, it also has its own home theater room.

Aside from the main house, the ranch is home to numerous other structures including a two-bedroom guest house, a carriage house with stables, a pool house and a swimming pool.

The grounds are also the site to natural gardens dotted with beautiful trees like Italian cypress and oak as well as a fruit orchard, which Winfrey would surely love as she herself grows her own avocados. The property’s listing described it to be ‘reminiscent of the hilltop villages of Italy’ with its charm, privacy, and elegance.

Cozy Living

Back inside, the main home definitely matches the aesthetic of its ranch and farm setting with its hardwood floors, vaulted wood-beamed ceilings and plenty of fireplaces. It reportedly houses a total of five fireplaces all in all. The interiors are also given a sunny and bright vibe by its many French doors and windows which dot the entire household. Meanwhile, the kitchen doesn’t disappoint either with its top-of-the-line appliances quartz countertops.

The home’s new resident is treated to a cozy master suite complete with its own fireplace and near-window sitting area, where one can read a book or lounge. The bathroom is fit for a celeb with its dual walk-in closets and oversized marble shower.
