The 1927-built Beverly Hills mansion has played host to an impressive list of characters, including William Randolph Hearst, and John and Jacqueline Kennedy.

The European-style Beverly Hills mansion featured in Francis Ford Coppola’s movie “The Godfather” is officially for sale.

The 5-acre house and estate was built in 1927. It was home to newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst for years. John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, honeymooned at the mansion in 1953. It was also featured in the movie “The Bodyguard,” says Realtor.com.

CNBC says the 50,000-square-foot house is probably best known for a particularly gruesome scene involving a horse head found in a bed in “The Godfather.”

It boasts 19 bedrooms and suites, a lighted tennis court, a near Olympic-size swimming pool, movie screening rooms and outdoor terraces that can seat 400 people.

But if you want to get your hands on this old mansion, you better have a loaded bank account. The house is listed at a whopping $175 million. It’s being sold by real-estate investor Leonard Ross, who ponied up a mere $2 million to purchase the home more than 40 years ago, according to CNBC.

Listing agent Mauricio Umansky of The Agency says:

“It’s old Hollywood. It’s very rare to get your hands on something that’s so architecturally significant.”

The former Hearst home was designed by Gordon Kaufmann, the architect who worked on the Hoover Dam.
