Entertainment mogul Oprah Winfrey has listed her Water Tower Place condominium for sale for $7.75 million.

The website of real estate firm Baird & Warner listed the 9,600-square-foot duplex at 180 E. Pearson St. for sale on Monday.

The unit includes four bedrooms, five bathrooms and two half-baths — plus multiple living areas and two kitchens, including “a huge chef’s kitchen,” according to the listing.

According to county property records, Winfrey purchased three condos on the 56th floor of the Water Tower Place residence between 1992 and 1994.

Taxes alone for the unit were estimated at more than $71,500 in 2012, and assessments for the condo run to just over $9,000 per month, according to the listing.

In 2012, Winfrey sold another home at 199 E. Lake Shore Drive for $2.75 million — half the $5.6 million she paid for the home in 2006. Though owning it for six years, she never lived there, the Chicago Sun-Times reported previously.

Winfrey’s company, Harpo Inc., also was considering selling part of its West Loop studio campus at 1058 W. Washington St., the Sun-Times reported in October.
