Inside Oprah Winfrey’s new $11 million hideaway mansion

Inside Oprah Winfrey’s new $11 million hideaway mansion

Billionaire Oprah Winfrey has splashed out on a waterfront property in the United States, on Washington's secluded Orcas Island.

Located between Seattle and Vancouver, it's one of the four largest islands that comprise the San Juan Islands archipelago.

It's not exactly a well-known location and for a mega-celeb like her, that's probably the point. 

The twice Oscar-nominated actress and global philanthropist already owns three stately homes – in Hawaii, California and Colorado – but what's another cool $11 million if it buys you a little privacy?

Previously known as the Madroneagle estate, Winfrey's new property consists of two waterfront titles combined into a total area of 17.4 hectares, which includes 914 metres of private shoreline, reported Variety.

The main dwelling is a plush 678 square metre lodge-style home with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, powder room, soaring exposed beam ceilings in the living areas, kitchen with full-size pizza oven, a games room, library nook with floor to ceiling bookcases, and a wine cellar and tasting room.

It's basically the ultimate retreat with everything the media mogul and her entourage could need to relax.

Finished internally with rare reclaimed woods, hand-forged iron work and wooden floorboards reclaimed from the old Sears' building in Chicago, the home has a luxurious cabin feel.

Additional to the primary home is a contemporary 273 square metre guesthouse with four more bedrooms and three bedrooms. Dubbed "the gallery house", it's not difficult to understand the moniker when you consider its position high on the cliff overlooking the private beach. 

But wait, there's more. The property also holds an enclosed "tea house" out in the garden, set overlooking the water, plus a large barn that houses a yoga studio and gym downstairs, and a woodworking studio upstairs.

According to marketing materials, the property also features a sauna, Asian-style garden, private hiking trails, a pond and a stream.
