The house includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a powder room, two two-car garages and a separate guest house with one bedroom. It was used in the HBO series about the fictional mobster sits on a 1.5-acre lot.
While the starting price seems high in comparison to other homes, owner Victor Recchia claims the house has a lot more to it than material value. (RELATED: Booth Where Tony Soprano Had His Final Meal Is Reserved)
“Those things can be quantified,” said Mr. Recchia told the Times about the physical parts of the house, “but I don’t think you can quantify the intrinsic value of this home.”

The scenes from the pilot episode were shot from the inside of the Recchia’s home, while later scenes were filmed from a soundstage made to replicate the New Jersey mansion. Production crews did return to the home over the years to film outdoor footage.
Fans of the show also show up to the home for photos and footage, according to the Recchia family.
“They’ll pull up in like a limo or something, get out in a robe, and pick up a newspaper,” Mr. Recchia recalled of a father and son duo who used the photo op to celebrate Father’s Day.
“We’ve met a lot of great people,” he added.
