Lake View

Known as Summertide, this 5.5-acre property on famous Lake Tahoe was once owned by eccentric business magnate Howard Hughes. You may be most familiar with Hughes from the 2004 film The Aviator, in which he was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Home Exterior

The estate comes with a 2,518-square-foot main house, a 1,343-square-foot guesthouse and a separate four-car garage. The property has only had one other owner since Hughes.

Craftsman Living Room

A stone fireplace cozies up the living room in the main house. Multiple sets of French doors open to a deck overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe.

Cabin-Style Bedroom

The 2,518-square-foot main house has five bedrooms and four bathrooms, while a 1,343-square-foot guesthouse offers extra living space for visitors.

Hot Tub

Deck

Just off the living room in the main house, a wooden deck offers sweeping views of Lake Tahoe and surrounding mountains.

Pier

The Adirondack-style estate sits on five parcels and has a buoy and a pier to maximize waterfront living.

View

It's hard to beat Summertide's panoramic vistas of Lake Tahoe. The historic home sits on 500 feet of frontage on the famous lake.
