Oprah Winfrey purchased a sixth-floor luxury apartment in Chicago back in 2006 for $5.6 million but never moved into the home because of privacy concerns and now her home can be rented to anyone willing to pay $15,000 per month.
For that price the new tenant will receive 4,607 square feet of liveable space that including stunning views of Lake Michigan from the apartments library and master bedroom which also happens to boast 10 foot tall ceilings.
Located inside of a 1913 Beaux Arts building in the Gold Coast neighborhood the realty site Zillow notes that the complex is also home to other penthouse and mansion seeking VIPs.
Thrown in for the large monthly rental price is a grand foyer, butler’s pantry, solarium, wine room, gourmet kitchen and a two-car garage which will likely be used to house very expensive automobiles from anyone who can afford $15,000 per month.
From June 2008 through January 2009 the apartment was listed for $6 million but was pulled after minimal interest.
