For $35 million, no one wanted to slap down a bid to own Tony Montana’s estate. So realtors cut the price in half — to a cool $17.9 million.
The four bedroom, nine bathroom mansion was designed by Bertram Goodhue in 1906, an renowned architect responsible for the Los Angeles Central Library, reports the L.A. Times.
Nicknamed El Fureidis, the house and its sprawling grounds has sat on the market for a year waiting for a buyer. “Scarface” fans know it as the “Miami” mansion Tony and Elvira married, but it’s actually built in the hills above Santa Barbara in Montecito.
Situated about 145 kilometres north of Los Angeles, the house has undergone renovations since the Al Pacino classic was released in theatres in 32 years ago.
Take a look at the house and its sprawling grounds for yourself:
Among the house’s more opulent features include a grand 18-foot Byzantine-style dome covered with gold leaf, as well as tall palm trees and multiple outdoor fountains spread throughout the estate.
Despite its grandiose features, it’s a relatively small mansion for the $17.9-million price tag. The house itself comes in at just 9,800 square-feet. But what it lacks in living space it makes up in stunning California vistas.
The 10.39-acre estate features ocean and mountain views. And at 49 per cent off its original asking price, it’s a better deal now than it was a year ago.
That is, if it’s cockroach-free, of course.
