You Can Buy Tony Soprano's House For A Neat $4.8 Million
You too could wander down your driveway to scoop up the newspaper before starting your day of mob shenanigans.
The couple who owns the New Jersey house that served as the exterior for Tony Soprano's house across six seasons is selling their home for AUD $4.8 million (USD $3.4 million).
While the property has an estimated worth of around USD $1.63 million, owners Victor and Patti Recchia told the New York Times they believe the higher starting price is due to the home's "intrinsic value" as well as its status with fans of the series.
A Facebook page -- affectionately called "Sopranos House" -- is full of positive reviews and comments, as well as photos of fans at the bottom of the driveway Tony drives up in the show's opening credits.
Patti Recchia told the Times they've "met a lot of great people". She added in some cases, fans have referred to her as Mrs Soprano as they take photos in bathrobes collecting newspapers or snapping pics of the home from the street.
When the show's star, James Gandolfini, passed away suddenly in 2013, fans stopped by the house to place candles, flowers and a bag of dried ziti.
While the interior of the home wasn't used for filming the series, there are still touches of 'Sopranos' love in the Recchia's home, including a poster signed by the cast and crew of the HBO show who visited anywhere between 30 to 50 times.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the show's debut, with a spin-off movie set for release in September 2020 starring Gandolfini's son Michael as a younger version of his father's character.
"It's a profound honour to continue my dad's legacy while stepping into the shoes of a young Tony Soprano," Gandolfini said earlier this year adding, "I'm thrilled that I'm going to have the opportunity to work with David Chase and the incredible company of talent he has assembled".
Anyone interested in moving into the Soprano's home has until June 21 to reach out. The Recchia's set up the email: firstname.lastname@example.org for interested parties.
