Oprah Winfrey’s empire just got even bigger — she just picked up an 8,700-square-foot mountain home in Telluride, Colorado.

According to Zillow, she paid $14 million for the property, which previously belonged to tech executive Bob Wall.

The home has five bedrooms and is packed with smart home features.

“[Wall] can water his indoor plants from San Francisco with his iPad,” realtor T.D. Smith told Zillow when the house first came onto the market with Telluride Real Estate Corp.

Let’s take a look inside Oprah’s new mountain digs.

Oprah's new home sits on 3.25 acres in Mountain Village, near Telluride. Residents can take a one-minute ride to the ski slopes on a funicular, which reportedly cost about $240,000.
