Literature lovers looking for properties in Lake Tahoe, a brand-new listing pays homage to everything Shakespeare and doesn't come cheap. Dubbed Shakespeare Ranch (allegedly due to a nearby rock that somehow resembles the playwright), this Lake Tahoe compound sits on 133 acres and boasts a whopping 423 feet of lake shoreline. There are 17 guest homes and cabins including a barn, indoor pool building, and a 397-foot shared pier. It's full of Shakespearean clichés, including guest cabins called "To Be" and "Not to be," a four-bedroom "King Lear" guesthouse, and a mismatched aesthetic that sometimes recalls the Old West and at other times looks like something out of New England. All of this for $98 million, which beats out Bill Koch's Aspen mansion as the most expensive ski property on the market.
