Rent from Oprah for Only $15K a Month

Here's your chance to live like Oprah. The Big O has placed a Streeterville co-op she never fully moved into on the market for rent. And, based on the listing from Prudential Rubloff Properties, it's a doozy for only $15,000 a month.

Gracious Benjamin Marshall Beaux-Arts style luxury 4607 sq ft home has amazing views from library, living rm and master bedroom w/10ft ceilings, formal spaces include inner foyer, grand foyer, living rm, library, formal dining rm, solarium, butler's pantry, wine rm, gourmet custom kitchen, laundry rm, office/3rd bed, en-suite guest & large master suite w/his/her baths. The ultimate in elegant living!

It's Oprah's co-op, so it should be nothing less than the ultimate in elegant living. The master bedroom is 1,200 square feet. That's the same size as our entire apartment.

Winfrey bought the co-op for $5.6 million in 2006, but remained in her condominium at Water Tower Place. She listed the co-op on the market for $6 million from June 2008 through January 2009, but that wasn't a very good time for condo or co-op sales.

Winfrey still owns several properties in the Chicago area, including homes in Elmwood Park and Merrilville, IN.
