You Can Live in the Corleone Family Compound From The Godfather Part II—For $5.5 Million
In The Godfather Part II (1974)—one of the rare sequels to improve upon, or at least remain on par with, the original movie—director Francis Ford Coppola continues the saga of the Corleone crime family. While Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) plots the demise of his enemies, including his traitorous brother Fredo (John Cazale), he stills finds time to relax on his sprawling Lake Tahoe compound.
Now, a home on that compound can be yours—for $5.5 million.
As TopTenRealEstateDeals.com reports, the historic listing is being offered by Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty. In addition to being any Godfather fan’s dream come true, it’s also a marvel of architecture. The property was part of a massive development built for industrialist and Hoover Dam builder Henry J. Kaiser in 1938. It took workers took just 29 days to erect the lakeside resort in Homewood, California, which Kaiser named Fleur du Lac (Flower of the Lake) and used as a boating getaway.
The four-bedroom, five-bath townhome was built in 1983 and is part of a 22-home development set against the lake. While the property itself wasn’t featured in the film, the views recall at least one key scene: Fredo’s fateful boat trip to nowhere. When you’re not reminiscing about the murder of a fictional character, you can enjoy the home’s interior carved-wood columns, large stone fireplaces, and library.
The home isn’t the only piece of Godfather real estate that’s come to market. The Beverly Hills mansion featured in the original—where Jack Woltz (John Marley) wakes up to find the head of his prize racing horse in bed with him—hit the market earlier this year for $125 million.
