It appears likely that the rumors Oprah purchased property on Orcas Island are true. A waterfront property in a gated community on Orcas Island sold last month for $7,150,000 to Madrona Tree, LLC of West Hollywood, California. The person the paperwork is sent to is Harpo Productions CEO. Another property, also on Catspaw Lane was purchased by Seed Money LLC, of Telluride Colorado for $1,125,000. We've left a message with the CEO and will update this article once our call is returned.
