Media mogul Oprah Winfrey is apparently doubling down on her real-estate empire. She recently picked up a $28.85 million 23-acre property in the heart of Montecito, a ritzy seaside town just south of Santa Barbara, California. She already happens to own an $85 million estate a few miles away.

The new property – called Seamair Farm – is a sprawling, ranch-style setup with full equestrian facilities. There’s an avocado orchard, a fish pond, a pool, and a large, flat lawn. In fact, the property is one of the largest estates in Montecito.

The OWN magnate is on something of a buying spree. She just snagged a $14 million Telluride home in December, too.

Check out her new California digs below:

The simple, single-level ranch-style house was designed by renowned California architect Cliff May, who is remembered for popularizing the ranch style in the 1930s. It’s a 4,750-square-foot four-bedroom with four fireplaces.

The property is bordered by a nature preserve, a golf club, and other private estates. This particular piece of land hasn’t been on the market in over 30 years.

There are two private wells on the estate. With California in a drought and water a sought-after commodity, personal wells are no small perk.

The high-end shops and restaurants of Montecito are just a few minutes’ drive away.

Should Oprah choose to house horses, she’ll have plenty of space in this large on-site barn.

Estates in upscale Montecito rarely have the flat space that Seamair Farm boasts. Although it’s not quite an ocean-view property, Oprah will be able to gaze around her without feeling enclosed.

To the north, the foothill mountains rise up above Montecito and Santa Barbara, offering ample hiking opportunities.

The pool looks pretty inviting. The house is built for outdoor living, with a series of open and covered patios and decks. There’s also a separate manager’s cottage and horse trainer’s house on the property.
