The Long Island home where the late mobster Peter Gotti and his then-wife, Catherine, once resided was sold for $651,000, The Post has learned.
New York property records reveal that the Gottis purchased the house in 1976 — during the height of his crime days. However, the pair sold the home 10 years later, for $185,000.
The property, which has since undergone a series of modern renovations, sold again on Dec. 17.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home where the former Gambino crime boss — who died Thursday in prison — spans 1,702 square feet and sits on a 0.24-acre lot.
The first floor has an open layout with a large island in the kitchen.
The property also features in-ground sprinklers and an expansive backyard with a large deck for barbecues and entertaining.
It is situated three blocks from the Long Island Railroad for easy access to New York City.
Peter was sentenced to 25 years in prison after his 2003 conviction on racketeering and other charges, alleging he took control of the Gambino crime organization after his mob boss brother, John Gotti, was locked up.
One year following his prison sentence, Catherine, then separated from Peter, angrily accused him in a divorce hearing of cutting her off from his modest pension while hiding ill-gotten millions.
“He’s defiant about everything that comes to my benefit,” she said during the Sept. 22, 2004, court appearance.
In a scathing letter to the federal judge, she requested a share of the pension and at least partial ownership of the $600,000 Howard Beach home that had been in Peter’s name. Catherine still owns that home today.
Their divorce was finalized in 2006.
The onetime Gambino crime family boss died in prison on Thursday after losing two bids for early release, his lawyer confirmed in a statement.
Peter, the successor to brother John “Dapper Don” Gotti, was 81 years old when he died at the Federal Medical Center prison in Butner, North Carolina.
He had been suffering from thyroid problems and was blind in one eye, Lewis Kasman, a former mobster and John Gotti confidant, told the AP.
