For a while there, the fancy condo section of The Montage Beverly Hills (and its attentive staff) were the province of just one man: a Beverly Hills developer named Larry Field. The project opened in lean 2008 but has had better luck over the past year or so–several units sold in 2012 and oil heiress Ariadne Getty bought one unit on the seventh floor for $14.25 million. Now the rumor mill (aka the fabulous Real Estalker) hears that Oprah Winfrey may have bought a pied-à-terre in the building for somewhere around $14 million. It’s completely unclear which unit she may have bought (the condos are on floors six through eight), but for comparison, Getty’s unit has four bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, a media room, balconies, and all of the fanciest finishes in 5,781 square feet (HOA fees were listed as a hefty $5,549 per month). All of the units come with soundproofing, a dedicated residential entry (and two dedicated elevator banks), separate parking with a minimum of three spaces per unit, and access to the hotel’s concierge, valet parking, fitness facilities, and pool. · Your Mama Hears… [Real Estalker] · Meet the One Person Living at the Beverly Hills’ Montage [Curbed LA]
