2. The Soprano Home
The house used as the Soprano residence in the show is a 5,600-square-foot brick McMansion in North Caldwell, New Jersey. Built in 1987, the home was put up for sale by the original owners in 2019 for a whopping $3.4 million. In the pilot episode, we meet Tony’s family in the kitchen – daughter Meadow (Jamie-Lynn Sigler), son Anthony Jr. aka AJ (Robert Iler), and wife Carmela (Edie Falco) – as Tony watches the ducks in the pool. Show creator David Chase told The New York Times that this crucial scene made the pool a necessary feature of the location they chose. Later in the episode, the inciting incident of the show, Tony’s first panic attack, happens right next to the pool. According to The New York Times, interior scenes of the pilot episode were shot inside the home on Aspen Drive as were exterior scenes throughout the series. After the pilot, interiors were shot on soundstages at Silvercup Studios built to resemble the real home’s interiors.
3. Livia’s House
In addition to Tony’s home, in the pilot and throughout the series we see the home of his mother, Livia. The structure used for exterior shots in the show is a modest white home built in the 1920s. It’s located at 55 Gould Street in Verona, New Jersey, a short drive but worlds away from Tony’s mansion on the hill. Aside from the removal of a chain link fence that production would put up for shooting, the house looks largely the same.
