Have you ever thought about what it would be like to live next door to Oprah? She’s be bringing over freshly baked pies and throwing some amazing cocktail parties and yet would never be too loud or rambunctious. It would be perfect. She would be the perfect neighbor. Anyway, I digress.
The reason this is important is because this possibility is about to become reality for one lucky buyer. The home next door to Oprah in Montecito, a beautiful, $45 million dollar estate, is now on the market, listed by The Agency.
The home was formerly owned by someone famous in his own right, Ed Snider, the self-made millionaire behind the Philadelphia 76’ers, Eagles, and chairman of the company that owns the Flyers. No Oprah, but still pretty cool.
The home itself is also pretty incredible. Built in the image of Italy’s Lake Como, this estate sits on 9.37 acres of land and offers something unique to the area, a sense of peace, space, privacy, and luxury to its residents over looking the pacific ocean. The interior is full of wide-open windows to make the most of the ocean view in a panoramic image of the ocean all the way to the mountains in the distance. The space also features showroom closets, an entertainment level, chef’s kitchen, and spa bathroom that all covers over 2000 square feet. Tiered gardens, a reflecting pond, European-style pool and pavilion, tennis court, organic fruit and vegetable orchard, and two-bedroom guest house epitomize modern luxury and timeless sophistication in one of California’s most desirable enclaves.
But most importantly, Oprah lives next door. Maybe, if you live here, you guys can get one of those tin can phone lines to talk all the time! Just saying.
