The Staten Island mansion featured in The Godfather will be avaiable for rent for a 30-night stay via Airbnb.
While the home was built in 1930, it is instantly assocaible with the 1972 film, directed by Francis Ford Coppol. The property has undergone renovations since its appearance on the silver screen – but its exterior remains reminiscent of the cult classic.
The Emerson Hill estate is amongst the most unique listings of the summer – giving film enthusaists the opportunity to live in one of the world's best homes (while exporing behind one of the most recongniable façades in the industry). The property is avaiable to rent via Airbnb from August 1-31 – however, you don't need to secure a booking to explore the property. Here, we take a tour.
The 'charming but expansive' 6,248-square-foot home may be best known for its exteriors, but its interiors are equally noteworthy. Most significantly, the living and dining room exhibit striking color ideas through its mint green paint that injects vibrancy to the otherwise monochrome space.
Elements of the home's history are similarly visible through its architectural assets, including the cream wood wall panelling on the walls and high ceilings. These features create a contrast with the dark-hued wooden floor that runs throughout much of the bottom floor. They also form a fitting canvas for the ornate furnishings, including antique-style tables, rugs and chandeliers that frequent the entire mansion.
This primarily neutral color scheme is also evident in the home's white kitchen ideas – complete with subtly painted cabinetry, a luxe marble backsplash and large countertop with a prep sink.
Alongside the main living areas, the home includes five bedrooms and seven bathrooms (that, the owners suggest, are most suitable for two adults and three children). There is also a games room, private gym and office that is brought to life with the some of the best house plants. The basement is home to a hidden 'pub' that is a welcome escape from the inevitable August heat.
The family-friendly amenities continue beyond the mansion's four walls – and into the garden ideas. Perhaps the pièce de résistance of the property is the salt water pool that is accompanied by an outdoor kitchen (featuring a grill) and large outdoor living area.
Bookings open from 1pm ET on Wednesday, July 27 2022.
