If you would like to live as Don Vito Corleone lived, you (kind of) can, for just $2.89 million. The 6,248-square-foot Staten Island mansion whose exterior was used in The Godfather is up for sale for that much. As the Staten Island Advance explains, five homes on Longfellow Avenue were used to create the "estate," with 110 Longfellow Ave.—the home that's now up for sale—being the "principal house." It was surrounded by a faux brick wall and a gate, "turning the street leading up to the house into part of a sprawling, well-guarded retreat."

Only the exterior was filmed, but the owner has made improvements to the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom interior, some of which involved replicating the interior of the home from the iconic film. For example, there's an office designed to look like the office from the movie, and, a real estate agent says, "a door on the first-floor by the dining room that looks like an old wooden 'speakeasy' door that leads down to the basement where there is a pub and a game room." Memorable scenes that show the house include Connie's wedding, and Don Corleone died in the home's backyard, the New York Post reports. (More real estate stories.)
