There are a great deal of celebrities that swamp the headlines when they purchase properties; however, Oprah is in a league of her own.

The beloved talk-show host, philanthropist, writer, and actress recently purchased a home on an island in Washington State. Obviously, this has made residents of Metro Vancouver extremely excited, as the entertainment mogul’s mere name creates a frenzy.

Of course, she didn’t purchase just any sort of property. Indeed, this sprawling estate sits on the largest of the San Juan Islands, and sold for a whopping $8.3 million USD, or approximately $10.7 million CAD.

With 43 acres and roughly 3,000 feet of west-facing shoreline, this stunning abode provides pure serenity. Appropriately named Orcas Island, this Pacific Northwest island offers sublime sightings of the majestic marine mammals.

The property includes a 7,000 square foot main house, that has four bedrooms and five bathroom. In addition, there’s a separate 3,000-square foot cliffside guest house; it also has four bedrooms, as well as three bathrooms.

It even has a stylish barn, that may be used as a woodworking studio, yoga studio, and gym.

Located roughly 20 kms northeast of Victoria, the property is coined the “Madroneagle Estate” by the Hopper Group.

Of course, Oprah is one of the richest people on the planet. With a net worth of well over $1 billion, she can afford just about any property she wants.

With that in mind, the icon has always had an affinity for the outdoors and the Pacific Northwest.
