Oprah Purchases Seamair Farm

Oprah Winfrey expanded her Montecito real estate holdings recently, paying $25 million for the 23-acre Seamair Farm, at 380 Santa Rosa Lane. The 23-acre equestrian estate shares a property line with Winfrey’s 42-acre spread on East Valley Road. Reportedly, Winfrey was friends with Seamair owner Mary Dell Olin Pritzlaff — who passed away last July at the age of 85 — and the family had hoped the media mogul would purchase the property and leave it intact.
