Oprah buys actor Jeff Bridges' Santa Barbara estate for $10 million

Oprah buys actor Jeff Bridges' Santa Barbara estate for $10 million

Another day, another home for Oprah. The TV star now owns at least six homes after selling the houses based in Chicago and Atlanta.

The star has seemed to turn her focus to the Montecito neighbourhood of Santa Barbara, and her latest house purchase from actor-friend Jeff Bridges is no exception.

She purchased the home after sneakily waiting for the price to be reduced from the initial price of $USD 7.495 million ($NZD 11,676,000) and snapped it up for $6.85 million ($NZD 10,669,000).

That’s a price reduction of $NZD 1,007,000.

The 3,517 square foot Spanish Revival-style home was originally built in 1919 by famous architect James Osborn Craig.

The house has been carefully taken care of as it still has its original windows, doors, hardwood floors as well as five fireplaces.

The home features two bedrooms and three bathrooms. High ceilings, expansive windows and French doors are around the home, with every room opening to beautiful gardens.

The house sits on an impressive four acres of gardens and also has a pool.

The master bedroom features an open-beamed ceiling, French doors and a fireplace.

The kitchen boasts wood cabinetry and quartz countertops and large, expansive windows are a staple throughout most of the rooms in the house.
