The Sopranos’ House Is For Sale
Journey songs and ambiguous endings not included
If you’ve ever wanted to spend your life re-enacting scenes from a certain beloved HBO drama and find the idea of residing in the scenic reaches of northern New Jersey appealing, this is your lucky week. Gothamist is reporting that the North Caldwell house that was home to the title characters of The Sopranos is now for sale.
The price? A low, low $3.4 million.
While this house was used for exterior shots on The Sopranos, the interior scenes were shot in New York City. That said, the real-life and on-screen versions of the house aren’t too far removed from one another. The article notes that “the interiors of the home were meticulously replicated at Silvercup Studios in Queens.”
What might you do with a house famed for its connection with one of television’s greatest antiheroes? The possibilities are limitless. Given that the release of the book The Sopranos Sessions earlier this year revealed that heated debates over the show’s finale can still be had in 2019, perhaps the creation of an Institute for Sopranos Studies is in order. There would be no shortage of things to discuss, after all.
Given the amount of square footage within the house, it could also be used as a kind of immersive screening room — perhaps to host dedicated showtimes of Sopranos creator David Chase’s forthcoming film The Many Saints of Newark, a Sopranos prequel with a powerhouse cast. As of earlier this year, it was slated for a 2020 release date.
Or you could just saunter down to the end of your driveway every day and pick up the newspaper, ponder moral ambiguity, and wait for the ducks to come back. Really, it’s up to you.
