The Staten Island house featured in Francis Ford Coppola’s film The Godfather is for sale. Well, the exterior of the house was used in the 1972 movie. Remember the outdoor wedding? The current owner has renovated the interior to resemble what the home looked like in the film including a first-floor office (windows intact).
The 6,248-square-feet Tudor mansion comes with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Asking price is $2.89 million. It’s located in Staten Island’s affluent neighborhood called Emerson Hill. The hill is named for Judge William Emerson–oldest brother of Ralph Waldo Emerson–who lived with his wife and children in a long brown shingle house known as The Snuggery. His two sons were tutored in 1843 by Henry David Thoreau, who lived with the Emersons from May through October. According to Wikipedia, it was the only time in his adult life that Thoreau lived anywhere but Concord, Massachusetts.
