Oprah's BFF: Gayle King's Connecticut Home

Gayle King Lived Here, Now You Can Too!

by Nikki Pepper
Sip your morning coffee while taking a virtual tour of our celebrity house of the day. Today: Welcome toGayle King's.

Gayle King -- Oprah's bbf -- used to live in this Greenwich, Connecticut house, but now the residence is on the market to rent. For just $24,500 a month, you can stay in this 6-bedroom, 8.5-bathroom. But that's not all you get. Along with over 10,000 square feet of house to roam, you get the over 4 acre lot it sits on. Sounds like you need a month to just explore the property!

Thanks to our friends at, we have a few photos to share. The Greenwich mega-house is owned by Oprah's company Overground Railroad LLC. So wait, doesn't that make Oprah... Gayle's landlord?

This Georgian-style house was built in 2000, so it's fairly new. Its New England location is far from the hustle and bustle of big-city Chicago. Just from the outside, you can tell this is a grand house -- the french front doors, the huge driveway and even bigger yard.

This kitchen is immaculate. Granite countertops, a huge island and a view to the backyard while you're cooking. We wonder what King has whipped up in this kitchen. It would certainly see a lot of use if we stayed there!

An eat-in kitchen takes full advantage of the bay windows and natural light. There's plenty of seating and plenty of room to pull up more chairs. The vaulted ceiling has several skylights which further brightens up the space.

Talk about a formal dining room. The heavy drapes, ornate mirrors and dark wood detailing create a traditional formal area. And the ornate ceiling doesn't hurt at all. With a fireplace on the far wall, we can easily see this room hosting winter holiday dinners.
