Talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey has very quietly sold a 4,806-square-foot, 39th-floor penthouse in Atlanta's Buckhead area for $1,800,000. In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the sale of the five-bedroom penthouse by Oprah (shown here with U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, and his wife Michelle), which took place in June. Records show that on June 4, Winfrey's Overground Railroad LLC company sold the unit, at 2660 Peachtree Road in the 40-story Park Place on Peachtree condominium building in Atlanta. The deal was recorded by Fulton County on June 15.
Oprah paid $1,515,000 in mid-2003 through her Overground Railroad LLC company for the eight-room unit, according to public records. It's unclear what Oprah's use was for the unit during the years she owned it. She also owns a five-bedroom, 5,994-square-foot house on a 1.62-acre parcel at 4555 Stratford Drive in Douglasville, Ga. since buying it in 2005 for $825,000, according to public records. Oprah is the only well-known person who has owned a unit in the Park Place on Peachtree building. Former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun has owned a sixth-floor unit in the building since buying it in 2001 for $467,500, according to public records. Winfrey's property empire is vast probably more vast than we have time to share today. However, see our December 11, 2006 post here for a past discussion of much of her real estate holdings. To that list one can obviously add the Douglasville property as well. And, one can subtract the Peachtree Road unit.
