The famous spread was later owned by non-gangster Peter L. Corsell, a private investor and founder of GridPoint, an energy-tech company, reports The Wall Street Journal. Corsell paid $5.7 million for the spread and allowed the previous owner to shack up in the home after signing the contract in 2008.

The house features seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms with 100 feet of prime water frontage. It was originally commissioned in 1922 by Anheuser-Busch brewing heir Clarence Busch.
Capone spent 11 years in the then-new federal prison, Alcatraz, for tax evasion.
