“I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.” It worked for the Corleones, so it might work for you. That is, if you want to own the Staten Island home that stood in as the exterior of Don Corleone’s residence in “The Godfather.”
The Todt Hill mini-mansion at 110 Longfellow Avenue hit the market last week for $2,895,000. Film buffs will clearly recall the house from the famous opening wedding scene, and thankfully not much has changed on the exterior since.
Built in 1930, the charming 6,248-square-foot home was completely gut renovated and modernized by its most recent owners. It has eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms as well as a large saltwater pool, a 24,000-square-foot yard, a pub in the basement, a “man cave” with game room, two offices, two fireplaces, a four-car garage, and a gym.
The English Tudor-style house last sold in 2012 for $1,687,500 after being in the same family for 50 years. So just two years later the current owner is looking to make a $1 million profit. Don would be proud.
