The Godfather trilogy is one of the most heralded cinematic achievements of all-time and many believe the second installment is the best of the series. Now, the beautiful Lake Tahoe home featured in the film is on the market for the first time in 30 years.
The 4,200-square-foot home, dubbed Fleur du Lac Estates, has four bedrooms and five full bathrooms and is listed for $5.5 million. The Homewood, California home was listed on March 3 by Craig Miller and Katherina Haug of Sierra Sothebyâ€™s International Realty.
“The lifestyle offered within Fleur du Lac is unparalleled at Lake Tahoe. Nowhere else on the lake can you own such an exquisite property, with a private marina, the facilities and amenities, and the level of service and care provided by the association and staff. This is concierge living at its finest,” says Haug.
The home is featured prominently throughout the legendary Godfather II film, most notably when Al Pacino’s Michael Corleone stares out of the home’s window ad Fredo goes swimming with the fishes:
Godfather II tackles the many rumors that there was prominent mob activity in the Lake Tahoe area in the 50â€™s, and the movie provides some beautiful shots of the lake, even if theyâ€™re dumping a body into it.
The home has plenty more history than the Godfather. It was built in 1935 by Henry J. Kaiser, the founder of Kaiser Permanente and builder of the Hoover Dam.
If you have $5.5 million laying around, this could make the perfect Tahoe vacation home. Just don’t go swimming with the fishes.
