TODT HILL — Just make them an offer they can't refuse.

A Staten Island mansion used as the exterior of Vito Corleone's house in the classic mafia flick "The Godfather" hit the market last week for $2.895 million, according to Connie Profaci Realty, the agency handling the sale.

The five-bedroom home comes equipped with seven bathrooms, an English pub in the basement, a "man cave" with game room, two offices and a gym — along with the distinction of being featured in one the most famous movies ever.

The English Tudor at 110 Longfellow Ave. was owned by the same family for 50 years and was listed for sale in 2010. It sold two years later for nearly $1.7 million, said Joseph R. Profaci, managing principal for the agent.

Profaci said the 6,248-square-foot home, originally built in 1930, was gutted on the inside by its latest owners and brought into the modern age.

"It was really gut renovated," he said. "There’s been a lot of changes. It’s much nicer."

But film buffs won't have to worry because the exterior of the home used in the movie remains unchanged, Profaci said.

The home was used for exterior shots in the 1972 movie directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Marlon Brando as Don Corleone. While none of the scenes were filmed inside, the house and its 24,000-square-foot yard were heavily featured in the film's opening wedding scene.
