VIDEO: Live next to Oprah? It’s an opulent affair…

$45 Million, that’s what you’ll pay to live right next to one of the most famous women in the world.

This inspiring video works in that it takes the buyer on a luxury property journey, from driving down a private, oak-lined entrance to showcasing all the irresistible comforts you’ll ever need in a world where no expense has been spared.

The Italian-inspired Montecito Estate comes complete with rolling lawns, marble fountains and painted murals. This luxe, 10-acre property, a dreamy escape in one of the area’s most prestigious neighborhoods, was inspired by the villas surrounding Italy’s Lake Como. French oak doors lead to the artistic interiors. It’s a grand design indeed. Ceilings are high, windows are large, French details merge beautifully with modern fixtures. Chandeliers hang above you, distressed oak parquet flooring warms beneath your feet, and almost everything is custom-made for the lavish space.

It features a staggering great room flanked by walls of glass, which reveal panoramic ocean and mountain views, and an approximately 2,000-square-foot master suite with a spa bathroom and showroom closets, magnificent entertainer’s level, and chef’s kitchen. It’s the perfect blend of style and sophistication.

Outside attractions include a manicured lawn, a sizable pond with water feature, verdant rose gardens, budding gardenias, four marble fountains with elaborate statues, a fruit orchard with avocado and lemon trees, a tennis court, and a glass-tiled pool lined with palm trees.

The ‘culture of celebrity’ allures discerning buyers. The magnificent home is listed by Mauricio Umansky and Santiago Arana from The Agency and although the property boasts more luxury than most – we’re almost sure Oprah is one of the biggest selling points.
