Oprah Winfrey's former Fisher Island flat sold to billionaire Lawrence Stroll in $13.5M cash deal


Oprah Winfrey's former 6,170 square foot Fisher Island penthouse was sold once again, this time for $13.5 cash to billionaire Lawrence Stroll, best known for taking the Michael Kors brand public three years ago. Winfrey, originally represented by hot shot Fisher Island broker Mary Ann Portell, negotiated the deal to then Chairman of the Board of Campbell's Soup, George Sherman, who bought it for $6.5 million in 2001. "That was unheard of at the time," says Portell.  Sherman, who has built a mansion on La Gorce Island, still maintains a pied a terre on Gilligan', er Fisher Island.
