Mansion where mob boss Tony lived in TV show The Sopranos goes up for sale for £2.7million

It’s the house where mafia boss Tony Soprano held court – trying to keep together his mob Family, his real family and his tortured mind.

And now you might be able to cut a deal to buy his home – for a cool £2.7 million.

The property in New Jersey will be instantly recognisable to fans of The Sopranos which ran for six series between 1999 and 2007 and is hailed by many as one of the greatest TV series ever.

It was the location for many iconic scenes, including the famous moment in the pilot episode when the depressive crime boss wades into the backyard pool with a family of ducks.

Soprano would regularly be seen on the doorstep in a robe picking up a morning paper and going up the driveway in his car, while the exterior of the house featured in the opening credits.

Like The Sopranos, the current owners of the four-bedroom house are Italian-Americans.

But they run a building firm, unlike the mafia kingpin who operated a waste management company as cover for his crimes. 

The hefty price tag for the four-bedroom, four-bathroom home far exceeds the normal £1.5 million asking price for the area. 

But owners Patti and Victor Recchia, who built the property, are hoping Sopranos fans will be tempted.

Mr Recchia said: ‘Bricks and mortar can be quantified, but I don’t think you can quantify the intrinsic value of this home.’

And Mrs Recchia said devotees of the show still make pilgrimages, even though the series ended 12 years ago. She said: ‘I was pulling out of the driveway and noticed a few fellas on their motorcycles.

‘So I open my car window just to acknowledge them, and they say, ‘Hi Mrs Soprano! Just want to take a couple of photos!”

When James Gandolfini, the actor who played Tony Soprano, died in 2013, flowers and candles were left on the driveway.
