The home from the classic Francis Ford Coppola’s Oscar-winning film, The Godfather II, is up for sale. The Lake Tahoe home is located in Homewood on the west shore near one of our favorite little ski hills on the planet.
Here’s the listing from Sotheby’s:
Some history on the home from Curbed San Francisco:
In 1935, industrialist Henry Kaiser (father of modern shipbuilding) built the 15-acre lakefront compound on Lake Tahoe’s west shore. According to the realtor, a crew of 300 men worked eight-hour shifts around the clock to build Fleur de Lac (translating into “flower of the lake” and named for Kaiser’s favorite hydroplane) in order to fulfill Kaiser’s goal of completing the estate in just 30 days. A seemingly unfathomable feat in today’s red tape-saddled times.
