Now that's one offer you can't refuse – if you have a spare million dollars lying in your bank!
The home that portrayed the residence of Don Corleone from the 1972 movie "The Godfather" is up for sale for $2.89 million.
Interestingly, only the exteriors of the residence located at Staten Island, New York, were used in the film. The Corleone family celebrated their daughter Connie's wedding in this house's yard.
According to The Guardian, the house was recommended by Gianni Russo, the man who played Connie's husband Carlo Rizzi in the movie. Russo happened to be a Staten Island native and thought it would be the perfect location to film the wedding.
The house was built in 1930 but as of 2012, the beautiful Tudor-style building was given a gut renovation. Currently, the mansion boasts of 6,248-square-foot of living space that includes five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
While the interiors of the home were kept away from the camera during filming, today, it features dark hardwood and tiled flooring, vaulted coffered ceilings, wide hallways and custom moldings. The home also boasts of beautiful fireplaces.
Apart from the living and dining rooms, the house also has a great room, a family room and two offices. A modern eat-in kitchen, a playroom and a pub with a game room are also a part of the house.
Outside, the residence has a granite pool, a large patch of green for recreation purposes and a four-car garage.
"The home was completely renovated, and the owners really tried to evoke some of the period's style. Like, in the first-floor office they used dark-wood moldings and built-in cabinetry to evoke the office in the film. It all has that feel from the 1930s, when the home was built, so it was very appropriate for the film." Joseph Profaci, the listing agent, told the People Magazine.
Profaci said, "My favorite feature of the house is a door on the first floor by the dining room that looks like an old, wood 'speak easy' door that leads down to the basement where there is a pub and a game room, which really is the ultimate man cave. It has a big, beautiful stone fireplace in it."
This is not the only "Godfather" location on market. A Beverly Hills mansion that was used in the movie is also up for sale for $135 million. "The Beverly House" was owned by media mogul William Randolph Hearst.
Many homes that have graced the silver screen have come up on the market for sale of late. One Montecito, Calif, home where several scenes of the famous Al Pacino movie "Scarface" were shot is also up for grabs at $35 million.
The "Money Pit" fixer-upper (no longer a fixer upper now) is also on the market for $12.5 million.
