Last month, Oprah had two Montecito ranches collectively worth $US79 million. Now, she has three ranches collectively worth almost $US86 million.

According to Variety’s James McClain, Oprah’s latest foray into the real-estate market is a $US6.85 million Spanish-style ranch she bought from her Oscar-winning neighbour Jeff Bridges earlier this month.

Bridges bought the Santa Barbara-area ranch in 2014 for $US6.85 million. The 4-acre property underwent extensive renovations after 2017 mudslides, according to Architectural Digest. He listed the home for $US8 million in April, meaning Oprah waited six months for a price cut.

Sally Hanseth of Coldwell Banker held the listing and represented Oprah in the sale.
