Godfather Movie Staten Island House For Sale

godfather houseWe love homes with an unusual back story, like the house from Ferris Bueller we profiled earlier, and this one certainly qualifies!  The Staten Island mansion made famous by the 1972 movie “The Godfather” is for sale for $2.9 million.

With 5 Bedrooms and 4 baths, the home totals 6,248 sq ft on a 24,000 sq ft lot. Built in 1930, it underwent a massive renovation in 2012 and now has a pool, a modern kitchen with 2 refrigerators and an island, and lighter colored rooms with more modern furniture.  It even has an English style Pub along with a “man-cave” in the basement!

While none of the movies scenes were shot in the interior of the home, the exterior was used extensively throughout the movie, showing the comings and goings of the characters and hosting one of the most famous scenes – that of daughter Connie Corleone’s wedding in the back yard while Vito held court inside fielding inquiries from wedding guests to have someone “whacked”, the “You ask me to do murder?” scene…
