NEW YORK, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- The Corleone family home from The Godfather went on the market this week for $2.89 million.
The 6,248-square-foot, five bedroom, seven bathroom mansion was the setting of the infamous wedding of Connie Corleone, the daughter of the godfather himself, Don Corleone.
The backyard of the home was also the setting for the scene in which Don Corleone, played by Marlon Brando, dies of a heart attack while playing with his grandson.
The seller purchased the home in March 2012 after its longtime owner died and remodeled many of the rooms to look like the interiors from the movie. The interiors were not shot inside the Staten Island mansion.
"The home was completely renovated, and the owners really tried to evoke some of the period's style," Joseph R. Profaci, managing principal of real estate agency Connie Profaci Realty, told People. "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."
"There's this old wooden door with dark metal hinges that's right off the dining room," he added. "It looks like the door of a speakeasy. When you go in, it leads you down this dark staircase into an English-style pub and large recreation room with a stone fireplace. It's wonderful."
The mansion was built in 1930 for the future Staten Island Borough President Joseph Palma. The Norton family owned it from 1951 until 2012.
