    Default 'The Godfather' Home for Sale for $2.9 Million



    The outside of this Staten Island, N.Y., English Tudor was used to portray Don Corleone's residence in the classic 1972 film The Godfather. The home is in Staten Island's Todt Hill / Emerson Hill section, known for its large, pretty homes and good-sized lots. This home is surrounded by park-like grounds and inside boasts 12 rooms that comprise 8 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 half-bath, 1 three-quarter-bath, 2 fireplaces, and an English pub basement that includes a rec room and a storage room. There's also a living room, formal dining room, den, butler's pantry, and a laundry room with a chute from all three above-ground floors. Need more space? There's also a 4-car garage. For outdoor living, there's an in-ground pool.

    This home has some personal meaning for me. I grew up right near it, and the band that played in the opening scene at daughter Connie's wedding played at my parents' wedding. My parents also like to tell the story about how they and some neighbors hung out near the home during the filming one day and were given some cookies, albeit stale, from the wedding scene.

    Judging from the photos, the owners didn't bother to hire a professional stager, or even clean up much. The home appears to have good bones but needs needs refreshing and updating. It's listed for $2.9 million with Connie Profaci Realty. Check the link on her site for more photos.

    We must thank sharp-eyed reader Caroline R. for telling us about this iconic home for being for sale. She sums it up well: "Considering the house's history it would make an exciting 'Estate of the Day' for the film buff, the gangster aficionado, or a real-life wannabe Don Corleone."

    I hate the wallpaper and that hideous green carpet, but with a makeover, I would give my eyeteeth to have it. I love the way the rooms are designed--and so large!

    The drapes, the carpet, and that wallpaper are all shit. That kitchen nook is the stuff of nightmares.

    The screened in porch is awesome.

    This was only used for outside shots in The Godfather right? The interior doesn't look familiar at all, but it's also been over 35 yrs since the movie was filmed, so clearly it could have changed.

    The kitchen is awful. I mean my kitchen is far bigger and nicer. But with a LOT of work, the house could probably be cool. Dunno if it would be worth it though....

    There's some real crap furnishings here, but I love the exterior. Interior would have to be redone - the carpets are awful.

    I like the outside, you'd need to do a lot of work inside

    Ha, the Godfather was on TV tonite and I spotted the kitchen with a bunch of gangsters sitting around the table.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I would never have guessed a house so lovely on the outside could be so ugly on the inside.

    Yes, I thought the kitchen definitely looked familiar. I really like the kitchen floor-plan but not the way it is decorated.

    Constipated old people live here, as evidenced not just by the decor, but the 2 bottles of Miralax and pill box on the counter. The packet in front of it looks like a protein supplement powder.
