The Chicago Tribune reported yesterday that Oprah Winfrey is renting out her 4,607 square-foot, three-bedroom condo in Streeterville at the tidy rate of $15,000 per month. While Oprah, who now spends most of her time in California and Hawaii, owns the unit she never actually moved in, opting to reside in her nearby duplex instead. UrbanTurf was able to find some interior photos to give prospective renters a look at what they would be getting if they rented the talk show queen’s (second) place.

The eight-room, three-bedroom condo at 199 East Lake Shore Drive was purchased by Oprah in 2006 for $5.6 million. (199 East Lake Shore Drive was designed by Chicago architect Benjamin Marshall, who also designed the Drake Hotel, the Edgewater Beach Hotel, and Blackstone Hotel.) The interior of the unit resembles a small palace — grand foyer with chandelier and marble floors, large dining room with pillars, a kitchen with a butler’s pantry, and a huge living room with a nook for a grand piano. It also has a library, a wine room, a massive master suite, and a solarium. The rental rate also includes two garage spots.
