LA Times December 16, 2015
Oprah Winfrey has dropped $14 million on a high-tech ski home in Telluride ó well within construction supervision range of the 60-plus acres she bought last year for $11 million.
The media mogulís new place was purchased from tech entrepreneur Bob Wall, who served as chief executive for such companies as Theatrix Interactive and Clarity Wireless. The noted African art collector sold the contemporary home furnished.
Set on about 3.25 acres on the slope side of Mountain Village, the five-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom home has some stand-out features.
The 56-foot-long, 1,600-bottle wine cellar looks like a mining tunnel, complete with piped-in sounds of creaking wood and dripping water and an antique ore cart.
The great room has a glass fiber-optic bridge suspended above it that connects the master bedroom to an office.
An observation deck 35 feet above ground includes a fire pit. Reached by a walkway that Wall set up to sway in the treetops, the deck cost $140,000 to build.
