Oprah Winfrey’s House: The Former Queen of Entertainment Settles for a Less Than Royal Sale Price:The 4,600 square foot, 13-room apartment was purchased by Ms. Winfrey in 2006 for just over $5.5 million dollars. Fast forward to 2012, and Oprah Winfrey’s house was recently put back on the market (after a previous failed attempt in 2008) for a mere $2.8 million. The abode on East Lake Shore Drive has multiple foyers, a solarium, a butler’s pantry, a room entirely devoted to wine storage, a breakfast nook, an office, a terrace, high ceilings, stunning views of the water, and three bedrooms. It is one of three properties Ms. Winfrey owns currently, and the least used of the three, hence her decision to offload it. Though she is not as powerful as she once was, it would still be kind of cool to boast that you now own Oprah Winfrey’s house. here was a time when you were definitely the queen of, well, just about everything. You could make a movie a hit, a book a bestseller, and a minor celebrity into a major one, just by turning your attention their way. Your retirement party brought out every entertainment giant of the last two decades. You made headlines when you launched your own magazine, and then your own network, and for all intents and purposes you looked to be made of gold. However, the magazine has only done so-so, and the network is struggling. While your talk show is missed, two or three other “gabfests” have happily sucked up your large afternoon audience, and are now doing better than ever. While you are still a prolific and successful producer, Oprah, sadly, your star has seemed to dim somewhat. Which may be the reason you are having so much trouble selling your apartment. If anyone out there is looking for a place, Oprah Winfrey’s house is now on sale for half of its original price.
Matthew Fox’s $1.995 Million House for Sale:Matthew Fox has had quite a steady career since the mid-90s, when he first made a name for himself with international audiences appearing as the oldest family member on the hit show, “Party of Five”. While his fellow “Party of Five” cast-mates sort of disappeared into the post-popular show ether, he managed to move on to another hit show, “Lost”, while also building a respectable film career, with supporting roles in such projects as “Smokin’ Aces”, “We Are Marshall”, and “Vantage Point”. He also started a family, and has done that surprisingly rare thing of remaining married to the mother of his children for two decades. In other words, he’s a regular guy from Wyoming, who just happens to be a successful actor. Until recently, he was the quiet poster child for the ways in which normalcy in Hollywood can actually work. Unfortunately, that “everyman” streak ended with two recent high profile arrests, one for allegedly punching a bus driver, and one for “Driving Under the Influence” this past week in Oregon. Hopefully, this is not the tip of the iceberg in a slow Tinseltown-style meltdown, but we’ll have to keep our eyes and ears peeled. Though he is a regular-Joe in some ways, one of his few nods to stardom is his ownership of multiple properties. In March 2012, he decided to place one of these homes on sale. Mr. Fox purchased the Spanish-style home in Manhattan Beach, in 1999, for under a million dollars. He tried to sell in 2007 for almost $3 million, but did not have any luck. He’s trying again five years later, with a selling price of a rather more reasonable, $1.995 million. The 2,491 square foot home, features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and space to park seven cars. The master bedroom takes up the entire top floor of the home, and features a fireplace, walk-in closet, wrap-around balcony, and a massive bathroom. Downstairs, a large den/living area with fireplace, a dining room, a laundry room, an enclosed patio, winding staircases, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a large kitchen complete the home. Hopefully Mr. Fox will remain a famous regular guy who sells a house successfully. Or at least sells a house before his fame tips over into full-blown infamy.
