The home, located in Staten Island, may not stand out to passers-by in New York, but for fans of Francis Ford Coppola’s cinematic masterpiece, it immediately catches the eye. The property earned respect from mafia watchers everywhere when it appeared as the Corleone clan’s home – and, specifically, the location of Don Corleone’s daughter’s wedding. (Tip: Don’t go to view the property on that day.)
In real life, the home has had a distinctly crime-free history, originally recommended by Gianni Russo, who played the Don’s son-in-law, Carlo Rizzi, on the screen.
“The kitchen is to die for,” agent Joseph R Profaci told the Staten Island Advance. “It has anything you would want for entertaining – big open space, a huge island, and a very large eating area that opens up to the yard and pool.”
For those not hosting weddings, two offices guarantee you enough room to carry out the family business behind closed doors, while the colourful kids’ rooms upstairs will provide a comforting refuge from the grim realities of facing down the competition.
The house was owned by the Norton family until 2010, when they placed it up for sale with an asking price of $2.9 million. In 2012, it had a less profitable second instalment on the housing market, selling for a reduced $1.69 million. After a successful Part 2, can The Godfather house find a buyer again on a third outing?
For those planning to make an offer they can’t refuse, the asking price is $2.85m.
