Say hello to my little friend, the mansion used in the filming of the 1983 Al Pacino film ‘Scarface’, which is now on the market and on sale for a cool $17.9 million.
‘Scarface’ was actually set in Miami but the mansion used for filming is located in Santa Barbara. ‘El Fureidis’ (which literally translates to ‘Tropical Paradise’) was built in 1906 by acclaimed architect Bertram Goodhue and features elaborate pools, high ceilings, fountains, fireplaces, courtyards, hidden patios, gold-lead detailing, a museum-quality painted ceiling in the dining room, outdoor gardens full of statues, palm trees and colonnades and nearly 10,000 square feet on more than 10 acres.
The property was actually listed a year ago but its original $35 million price tag didn’t attract the right buyer, so it’s now on sale at a half-price steal of $17.9 million. Start saving, kids.
