See Oprah’s Newest Colorado House Inside and Out

December 18, 2015 by Billionaire Addresses

Billionaire Oprah Winfrey has bought another house.

Oprah just bought a ski home in Mountain Village, next to Telluride, CO with a ‘wine mine’, as the Los Angeles Times reports it.

Up to 1,600 wine bottles are stored in a 56-foot-long tunnel or “mine shaft” in the basement. There’s an antique ore cart on tracks, and lights are computerized to flicker like a lantern, listing agent T.D. Smith told Zillow. Sound effects like creaking wood and dripping water are piped in.

The wine shaft isn’t the only feature that pays homage to mining. An old-timey funicular or tram, can carry four people up to the nearby Sundance ski slope. Installation cost $240,000, according to the L.A. Times – about the same as most people’s entire homes. The ride lasts about a minute.

The home also has an observation deck with fire pit, 35 feet above ground, installed for a reported $140,000 and accessed by a walkway that sways in the trees. A helicopter had to fly in the tower, according to Zillow. (Thank you for some of our pictures)

The five-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom property also has a seven-person hot tub with glass walls that open into the forest; six decks; an exercise spa with sauna (and the hot tub); a game room with wet bar and pool table; a guest house; and a glassed-in tower with views of the San Sophia Range.

Tech entrepreneur Bob Wall had the house custom-built in 2001, and he naturally stuffing the mansion with smart features. Most of the home’s systems are remote-controlled or automated.

Again, thank you to Zillow, Oprah Snags Telluride Mansion – Zillow for information and images for this story
