Subscribe to Oprah Winfrey alerts

Oprah Winfrey has sold her Chicago, Illinois home.

The media tycoon's Streeterville-area apartment was purchased in the American city on Tuesday (17.07.12) for $2.75 million.

However the star originally bought the place for $5.6 million six years ago.

Oprah's former sixth floor apartment spans over 4,607 square-feet and featured views of Lake Michigan, three-bedrooms, two fireplaces, a library, a butler's pantry, a 1,241 square-foot master bedroom and a solarium.

Apparently Oprah never moved in or lived there.

The former daytime talk show host owns other Chicago properties that she resided in, but currently spends her time at her $50 million Montecito, California estate.

Earlier this month she purchased her father Vernon's Barbershop out of foreclosure after one month of being in the financial state.

Her parent had the men's hair salon in Nashville, Tennessee, and his wife - Oprah's stepmother - was apparently angry about her buying it.

Barbara Winfrey told NBC station television station WSMV-TV: ''I know what is going on. I'm tired of it, and I've had enough.''

Vernon had run the barbershop for 50 years and it was considered a fixture in his community.
