Oprah ‘to buy one of the most expensive homes’

Melbourne: US chat show queen Oprah Winfrey is reportedly planning to buy a new home with a 68-million-dollar price tag.

It one of the most expensive homes in the United States.
The media mogul is said to have inspected the sprawling Old Frick Estate in the ulta-exclustive suburb of Alpine in New Jersey.

Winfrey arrived at the property in an entourage of two-blacked out SUVs and a van.

"Her people requested that everyone leave the house so it would be empty when she walked through," a website quoted a source as telling a news daily.

The five story English manor style property boasts of everything Winfrey could dream of including a carriage house, a library, perfectly manicured English gardens, a ballroom, a fully equipped movie theatre, tennis court, saline pool and wine cellar along with nineteen bathrooms and 12 bedrooms.

If the talk show host, who is due to hang up her microphone after 25 years in front of the camera soon, does decide to buy the property she will have a slew of celebrities including Sean ‘P Diddy’ Combs, Eddie Murphy and the Jonas Brothers as neighbors.
