We 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.

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!
