Oprah Winfrey’s Promised Land

The self-made media mogul paid $50 million in 2001 for the 23,000-square-foot Georgian-style home she calls the “Promised Land.” Although renovations were underway when she purchased the estate, Oprah simply altered the plans to ensure they matched her style. With the chaos of construction behind her, she now enjoys the home’s mountain and ocean views in peace. The property as told by Oprah was first spotted when she was in a photo shoot at a nearby location.

Winfrey also owns a beautiful apartment in Chicago, a big house in New Jersey, an estate in Florida, a ski house in Colorado, a house in Douglasville, Georgia, and land on Maui, Hawaii and Antigua.
