In 2018, Oprah Winfrey purchased a scenic waterfront estate located in rural Orcas Island off the coast of Seattle. The real estate deal cost $8.3 million and was executed through an entity linked to her network. The media magnate reportedly purchased the property without visiting the home in person. After three years of ownership, the television host has decided to bid farewell to her island home as she reportedly lacks the time to maximize its usage. Recorded on Tuesday, Winfrey has officially sold her waterfront residence for $14 million in an off-market deal. Jen Cameron, vice president of Coldwell Banker Bain’s global luxury division, represented the buyer in the deal who is listed under the title of Lophodytes LLC. The billionaire public figure currently resides at her self-proclaimed Promised Land, a 70-acre ranch property located in Montecito, California. With an impressive real estate portfolio, Winfrey also owns homes in Telluride, Colorado and Maui, Hawaii.

Madroneagle Estate on Orcas Island spans 40 acres of lush landscape and features a 7,303-square-foot main house with four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. Decorative elements of the home consist of an eccentric copper and slate roof on the exterior and a luxuriously rustic cabin interior with finishes of rare, reclaimed wood. The picturesque property is perfect for entertaining as it offers a spacious living area with stone fireplace, kitchen with oversized center island and built-in pizza oven, and adjacent dining room. Other highlights of the reserved residence include a cozy library nook with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, game room, home office, wine cellar, and tasting room. Elsewhere on the estate rests a guesthouse located on a high cliff overlooking the private beach. With 2,948 square-feet, the guest space presents four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The exterior grounds of the island property highlight a sauna, pond, garden, hiking trails, and stream. The scenic estate comprises of two waterfront parcels and 3,000 feet of west-facing shoreline for spectacular sunset views.
