Los Angeles, California – The iconic stilt house from Michael Mann’s crime film “Heat” has found a new owner, selling for $1,075,000 after being on the market for two months at a slightly higher price. The East L.A. home, prominently featured in a pivotal scene with Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, offers stunning views of the city and Catalina Island on clear days.
