The 5,600-square-foot four-bedroom house was listed by current owners, Patti and Victor Recchia, at a "starting price" of 3.4 million, the New York Times reports. Although other homes in the area typically go for $1.5 to $2 million, Mr. Recchia notes that the price reflects the "intrinsic" value of owning Tony Soprano's fictional home.
In addition to the four suites, the home is located on 1.5 acres and is equipped with four full bathrooms, not one but two two-car garages, and a guest house separated from the main abode. Built in 1987, the house has undergone several renovations since.
Although most of the indoor scenes were filmed in a Queens-based replica of the North Jersey brick and mortar, the house provided the inspiration for the model and was featured in the series for outdoor scenes. Victor told the publication that fans of The Sopranos often showed up outside his home, clad in bathrobes, to replicate James Gandolfini's portrayal of Tony's newspaper ritual.
Patti said that she's even been called Mrs. Soprano during one particular interaction with fans. “I was pulling out of the driveway and I noticed a few fellas on their motorcycles coming down the cul-de-sac,” said Ms. Recchia. “So I open my car window just to acknowledge them, and they say, ‘Hi, Mrs. Soprano! We’re not going to mess anything up, just want to take a couple photos.’”
