Listed with Connie Profaci Realty, Corleone's family mansion is on the market for $2.9 million. The 6,248 sq ft home has 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 fireplaces, a pub basement, 4-car garage and yes, an inground pool. Owned by the Norton family since 1951, Ed Norton III describes how their Staten Island, NY house was turned into a celebrity in its own right.

The Norton family home was used for filming for a year and a half and members of the family got to know actors Marlon Brando, James Caan, Al Pacino, and others. The "GodFatrhers" movie fans will immediately recognize this English Tudor home that was used as the Corleone family home. Although some changes were made in the view of the movie producer like massively high stone walls, an enormous iron front gate and a guard shack, they were merely built on site as part of the set and no longer exist.

According to Moviefone, , here are notable scenes at the home: Quote >>> "Not only was the Corleone mansion the site of ‘The Godfather’s’ beginning — Connie’s wedding — but it was also the site of The Godfather’s end. From hosting Connie’s wedding, where Mama Corleone sang, Frank Sinatra-ish heartthrob Johnny Fontane (Al Martino) made a special appearance and sang to the bride, and hothead brother Sonny Corleone (James Caan) threw a hissy fit about the government agents who were staking out that place; to serving as the Corleone “family” meeting place when the mobsters were planning to go to the mattresses to the death of Don Vito, it all happened at the Corleone estate".

Epic tale of a 1940s New York Mafia family and their struggle to protect their empire from rival families It is unquestionable that part of film's success is the iconic estate where 3 generation of Corleone lived and carried the family saga ... overflowing with life, rich with all the grand emotions and vital juices of existence.

No doubt the mansion is a very attractive piece of Real Estate and the price is right considering the fame and history. "You gotta go, you gotta go."
