Iconic property at the centre of Francis Ford Coppla's Oscar-winning film has been put up for general sale
The iconic home of the Corleone clan from Francis Ford Coppla’s 1972 classic The Godfather has gone on sale in New York for a whopping $2.89m (£1.85m). Marlon Brando was the man of that house in the Oscar-winning film as ruthless mafia boss Vito Corleone.
The Godfather is widely considered to be one of the greatest movies of all time
In reality, the house on Staten Island belonged to the Norton family, a loving-unit that one would assume was far less crime-centred than the on-screen household.
Those owners sold the property in 2012 and since then it has reportedly been ‘gut renovated’ in an effort to make it look similar to the interior of the property in The Godfather.
However, guests are unlikely to feel the same sense of menace that visitors of Don Corleone may have once done.
The five-bedroom, seven-bathroom property now includes modern amenities such as a ‘man cave’, gym and even an English pub.
Joseph Profaci, managing principal of the Connie Profaci Realty Estate Agents, explained the fantastic job that had been done to recreate this movie spectacle.
"The current owners remodelled the first-floor office to try to make it like the one in The Godfather movie," he said.
"The kitchen is to die for. My favourite feature of the house is a door on the first floor by the dining room that looks like an old wooden ‘speak easy’ door that leads down to the basement where there us a pub and a game room, which really is the ultimate man cave."
