Ty Cobb’s fishing lodge in Lake Tahoe, Nevada is now up for sale to the tune of $6.5 million.
The legendary Detroit Tigers infielder used the fishing lodge with his family and friends during the early Twentieth Century.
Cobb died in 1961, but his family has maintained the fishing lodge ever since.
The entire Lake Tahoe region has undergone extensive residential development since Cobb’s time.
“Cobb’s granddaughter remembers going out to pick up spring water or taking the boat to pick up mail,” said Tahoe real estate agent David Cloutier of Coldwell Banker. “It’s the character of the residence that stands out the most.”
The 2,438-square-foot residence has a knotty-pine interior, which includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a large wooden deck that overlooks ample Tahoe fishing waters.
But the historic fishing lodge comes with a hefty price tag.
The mortgage on the fishing lodge alone is estimated at $25,779 with a 20 percent down payment.
