Howard Hughes’ former Tahoe estate for sale, $19M
June 07, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — A Lake Tahoe estate once owned by the late billionaire recluse Howard Hughes is on the market for $19.5 million.

The Crystal Bay property called “Summertide” stretches along 500 feet of the lake’s north shore.

The main log cabin home built from local timber in 1934 has five bedrooms, four baths and an office. The 5.5 acres covering five contiguous lots also has a pier, a meadow, a guest cottage and four-car detached garage.

Realtor Karen Bruno of Chase International tells the Reno-Gazette Journal (http://tinyurl.com/kjwfwdt) that Hughes bought the home as a retreat in the 1950s. She says it must have been an ideal hideaway before the business tycoon died in 1976.

Public records show Bruce and Nora James bought the estate from the Howard Hughes Corp. in 1995.
