Tommy Hilfiger is owning it… but doesn’t want to June 8, 2011

Tommy Hilfiger (best known for his preppy clothing line) has been trying to sell his 210-acre estate in Lake Tahoe (Tranquility) since ’06 and he just reduced the price on it. How much you say? 25%. Does it sound like much? Maybe not if your home is worth a couple hundred thousand but this place was originally listed for $100 Million so it’s now worth a cool $75M. What a steal! 🙂 I kid, I kid… but really, price reductions in the upper end are usually bigger chunks (and bigger percentages) than those in the entry or mid-level. Check out some pics to see if it’s worth saving for:

You’ll own a lake for cryin’ out loud!

Check out the Great Hall’s, wait for it, 30 foot windows! Jealous! I la-la-love lots of windows! This room (what an understatement!) also features a sky-lit entryway which boasts marble floors patterned after those in the New York Public Library.

Other facts about Tranquility:

  • It took 150 works 3 1/2 years to build
  • It consists of 8 buildings (including a stable, boat house, conservatory, art studio, guest house and gymnasium with indoor basketball court)
  • It includes development rights to build additional structures on the property
  • It sits on the largest privately held residential parcel at Lake Tahoe (although it cannot be subdivided)
  • It’s being sold fully furnished so you could live just as the Hilfiger family has
  • Final cool fact: The dining room features 300-year-old French plank flooring and there’s a cigar lounge modeled after the one in New York City’s St. Regis Hotel!
Give me a call if you’re interested (oh, heaven it would be fun to be apart of this deal!) or should you have any questions about anything you’ve read here or if you’re interested in any city in Southern California (particularly the San Gabriel Valley or Inland Empire), please feel free to call your favorite REALTOR SmileAnd, I can always send you a FREE Market Analysis on your home, just ask
