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.

Perched on a bluff, the home looks out across 500 feet of pristine shoreline. And the estate includes five parcels of land over 5.5 acres.

According to the listing, the property can be redeveloped into a massive lakefront compound, or split up into multiple lakefront and lake-view homes.

The 3,800 square feet of living space is divided between the historic log cabin home and the guest cottage.
