A prime connection to Lake Tahoe and Hollywood history is up for sale for just under $3.75 million.

The residence in the Fleur du Lac Estates on Tahoe’s west shore is being offered by Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty.

The original 15-acre Fleur du Lac compound was built by industrialist and ship-building magnate Henry J. Kaiser in 1938 to celebrate completion of the Hoover Dam. Kaiser’s company was one of the dam’s main contractors. (Kaiser later formed the Kaiser Permanente healthcare system for his workers.)

The estate’s 17 structures included large homes, small cottages, servants’ quarters and a yacht club.

The property was used for key scenes in “The Godfather Part II,” including a scene in which Al Pacino’s mob-boss character, Michael Corleone, orders his brother Fredo, played by John Cazale, murdered on the lake.

The 1974 movie was directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

The newly listed condominium has three bedrooms, four baths and a library in more than 3,700 square feet. It is one of 22 residences, ranging from 4,300 to 6,000 square feet, that were built during redevelopment of the property in the 1980s.

Kaiser’s original stone yacht club, featured in Coppola’s movie, still stands.
