The Godfather house
The mansion that stood in for the Corleone family home in "The Godfather" is up for sale, though based on how much cash you're willing to spend, it may or may not be an offer you can't refuse.

According to The Guardian, the Staten Island, New York home is selling for just under $3 million, though the sprawling property -- and place in film history -- seem to make it worth the hefty pricetag. The listing boasts five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two offices, and four garages, along with a saltwater pool in the backyard. And according to a real estate agent, the house's kitchen is "to die for."

That seems appropriate, since the home was the headquarters of a mob family. Though its interior was not used for filming, it was in the background of a number of scenes, including the wedding of daughter Connie Corleone (Talia Shire).

While some film buffs may not have enough dough to meet the $2.89 million asking price, perhaps there are other ways to round up some cash. We hear some family businesses are pretty profitable.
