Godfather house for sale

Dec 03, 2010 | 4:00am EST

The eight-bedroom, four-bathroom property on Staten Island, New York featured in Francis Ford Coppola's gangster epic as the base of mob boss Corleone.

Its grounds were used for the 1972 movie's famous wedding scene, and interior shots of the crime dynasty eating meals and holding family meetings were filmed inside the property.

The home is set in 7,000 square metres (24,000 square feet) of land and includes a swimming pool and a garage big enough for four cars. It even has a bar in the basement.

The elderly owner of the house died last month (Nov10), and the property has since been put on the market for $2.9 million (£1.9 million).

A neighbour, Elaine Albert, tells the New York Daily News, "I remember when they filmed the wedding in the backyard. People know it. Japanese tourists come here to take pictures."
