Huge mansion on Staten Island
The mansion is located on Staten Island, New York. It is an eight-bedroom, five-bathroom house. It also has a four-car garage, two fireplaces, an English-style pub inside and an in-ground swimming pool.
The grounds and the exterior of the home became famous in the movie adaptation of the Mario Puzo novel The Godfather. Fans of the movie may remember the opening scene of the movie where mafia boss, Vito Corleone, sees people and grants them favors, from money to murder, on the day of his daughter’s wedding. The home was featured throughout the first two movies in the three-movie series.
According to Norton, his mother collected memorabilia from the movie set while the cast and crew were there filming. Some of those include photographs and autographs from cast and crew.
