A reliable real estate source has been confidentially indicating to a local news source that a representative for Oprah Winfrey has contacted her and a couple of other real estate professionals to locate a piece of land in Howard County to build a new home for Ms. Winfrey. The site has to be at least 10 acres, be located in a secluded location, have trees that would hide any house from the road and be able to accommodate a helicopter-landing pad.
Apparently this home would be quite an upgrade from the last residence Oprah had when she rented a one-bedroom condo in Wilde Lake and worked for a Baltimore TV station. Of course her financial status has changed quite a bit since then. Back then Oprah could eat at Chick-Fil-A in the Columbia Mall and not be noticed.
This home purchase has been a result of Oprah’s new OWN channel with the Discovery Network that is headquartered in Silver Spring. Apparently Oprah feels she will be in the area often enough attending meetings at their Silver Spring office to make a home purchase in the area necessary. Oprah presently owns homes in California, Chicago and Hawaii. For someone with her wealth it is more reasonable to buy homes in areas she frequents than to stay in hotels.Any thought on what day it is?
