Spending $2.75 million on a condo is far from a bargain for most Chicagoans; but whoever spent that much on Oprah Winfrey's former Streeterville condo can pat themselves on the back.

The unit sold for that price in a deal that closed Tuesday, NBC Chicago reports.

The former talk show host's Streeterville condo was listed for $2.8 million in May: already a steal at half of the $5.6 million she paid for the 3-bedroom, 3-and-a-half bath co-op in 2006.

The price reduction was shocking, considering Winfrey never even moved into the unit. The part-time Chicagoan spends her time in the city at her duplex condo in Water Tower Place a few blocks away.

Winfrey first put the unit at 199 East Lake Shore Drive up for rent in November, for $15,000 a month.

While it may not be good enough for Oprah, the 4,607 square foot home in Benjamin Marshall's famous 1913 Beaux-Arts style building is unquestionably a stunner, with 10-foot-high ceilings, a library, solarium, wine room and gourmet custom eat-in kitchen, according to the Rubloff listing.
