In the Netflix spinoff series Cobra Kai, the original Karate Kid Daniel LaRusso – played by Ralph Macchio, 59 – upgraded from the dingy apartment complex featured in the earlier movies to a lavish mansion after he became the wealthy owner of a car dealership.
And now, the Tuscan-style villa has been listed for $2.65million.
While San Fernando Valley resident Daniel swapped his working-class Reseda neighborhood for the upscale suburb of Encino, California, the Cobra Kai house is actually located in Marietta, Georgia.

LaRusso’s nemesis from The Karate Kid movie franchise, Johnny Lawrence, played by Willaim Zabka, 55, is the main protagonist of Cobra Kai.
Over 30 years after being defeated by Daniel, the former Encino rich kid is now a struggling handyman in Reseda. When Lawrence decides to reopen the Cobra Kai karate dojo, their rivalry is revived.
Daniel later reopens the Miyagi Do dojo and the series follows their ongoing feud and battle for karate dominance.
However, the fourth season will see them teaming up against their common enemy, John Kreese, played by Martin Kove, 75.
Though Cobra Kai’s fourth season is expected to drop later in the year, where the LaRusso family will live now is a mystery.

This comes after news The Karate Kid is to be transformed into a stage musical.
The original 1984 martial arts movie is now set to be adapted for a Broadway show.
Robert Mark Kamen – who was the mind behind the classic film – has joined the project alongside Drew Gasparini, who will write music and lyrics, while the production will be directed by Amon Miyamoto with choreography by MTV VMA nominees Keone and Mari Madrid.

In a statement Kamen, 72, said: ‘Never in my wildest dreams did I think this little movie would reach across generations the way it has.
‘And beyond my wildest dreams did I think what started out as a love letter to my devotion to Okinawan Karate and the man who taught me would become a full-blown Broadway musical.
‘But here it is. Here I am. And here is hoping that what comes to the stage brings the same joy and relevance ‘The Karate Kid’ has brought to countless kids and their parents for the past 35 years.’
Miyamoto added: ‘Many people love Broadway musicals for ‘escape’ – but I love them because they provide insight into how we should live our lives. I was inspired to do a stage adaptation of ‘The Karate Kid’ because it tells a story we need in this on-going ‘Age of Division’ as our society becomes increasingly globalized.’

Additional information, including casting and production dates, will be announced in the future.
Macchi previously admitted that he was unlikely to make another Karate Kid film, because ‘movies had changed.’
In an interview last year, the 58-year-old actor said: ‘It has been discussed, but it’s not something that I think we’re moving forward with and here’s the reason for that. To go back and try to do a traditional major motion picture sequel, movies have changed in the sense of what plays in the movie theatres and for how long. It’s usually big IPs like superhero movies that get that screen time and then there’s everything else. It’s hard.’
