Boasting a private pier with jaw-dropping views and known as “Summertide,” this legendary property along Lake Tahoe’s North Shore is what real estate dreams are made of.

Aviation entrepreneur and American business tycoon Howard Hughes was once the home’s owner, but now it can be yours for $19.5 million. John Leles, who is affiliated with Oliver Luxury Real Estate and Christie’s International Real Estate, holds the listing.
