Rent Oprah’s Palatial Chicago Apartment

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey is looking to rent out her swank but never-lived-in Chicago pad for $15,000 a month. The fine folks at Curbed (via the Chicago Tribune) are reporting that Oprah is renting out the East Lake Shore Drive home that she purchased for $5,600,000 in 2006 and tried to unsuccessfully sell for $6,000,000 a couple of years later. She never ended up officially moving in, instead she set up camp in an ultra-posh duplex a few miles down the road. Now, it’s time for someone else (with deep pockets) to move on in.

The luxury, 4,607 square foot home has amazing views from library, living room and master bedroom with 10 foot ceilings. The apartment’s formal spaces include an inner foyer, a grand foyer, living room, library and formal dining room. Other amenities include a solarium, butler’s pantry, wine room, gourmet custom kitchen, laundry room and office (or third bedroom). The en-suite guest  and large master suite come complete with his and hers baths. The unit also includes a 2 car garage.
