Fun fact: Three homes that were part of the “The Godfather” movies are on the market.
First off is the Tudor-style home of Don Corleone. In the photos it looks smaller than I remember. Built in the ‘30s, transformation to the Longfellow Avenue neighborhood took place in 1971 in an effort to create the Corleone estate. For the film a fake brick wall and wrought iron gate on the main street turned this:
The Beverly House in California has an interesting history. In the film “The Godfather” it was the home of the Hollywood mogul who found a horse head in his bed.
It was also in the film “The Bodyguard” starring Kevin Kostner and Whitney Houston.
Besides a film location, it was home to William Randolph Hearst.
And the honeymoon location of John F. and Jackie Kennedy.
The third house to make this list is in “The Godfather: Part II.”
This time, the home belonged to Michael Corleone and was part of his Tahoe compound. The stone boathouses formed a famous backdrop.
The home on this property was originally built in 1938 by Henry J. Kaiser, one of the prime contractors responsible for the Hoover Dam.
Have a great week!
