Make an offer they can’t refuse – The Godfather II home for sale
A home in the Fleur du Lac Estates on Lake Tahoe that was used for a number of scenes in The Godfather Part II, including the Fredo Corleone lake murder, and the Michael and Kay Corleone machine-gun attack in their bedroom, is for sale at US$5.5 million.
Fleur du Lac represented the film version of the Corleone-family and their move to Nevada to sell their interests in their Las Vegas casinos as part of the plan to make the mob family more legitimate. Actually located on the California side of the lake, it is now an exclusive development that was originally built in 1938 by 300 workers in just 29 days for industrialist Henry J. Kaiser. Kaiser, who built the Hoover Dam and many of World War II’s military ships and aircraft.
Now a luxurious private resort, Fleur du Lac spans 15 acres with 22 private townhomes with the yacht club and marina open to all residents. In addition to tennis courts, there is an exercise facility with locker rooms and steam showers, heated pool and jacuzzi and a private beach. The yacht club has a guest apartment named the Kaiser Suite and there is an outdoor terrace for scenic viewing, a bocce ball court and private marina with personal boat slips. On-site concierge management oversees resort services and there is also a property vehicle and driver available.
Originally, the Fleur du Lac property developer’s own home when the townhomes were added in the 1980s, the 4,200-sq.-ft. home with four bedrooms and five full baths is located in a prime position lakeside. Renovated and updated to 21st-century standards, many of its original touches remain such as the interior carved-wood columns, beamed ceilings and walls of glass with lake and mountain views. Large stone fireplaces grace the Great Room, library/media room, two of the four guest suites and master suite that turn chilly evenings into warm gathering places. The chef’s kitchen is a beautiful spot for an intimate meal or breakfast overlooking the lake but is outfitted on a scale large enough to feed a sizable crowd. The stairs off the foyer lead to the second-floor bedroom suites where the hallway is washed in light from the rooftop cupola.
The home is selling completely furnished and priced at US$5.5 million.
