( 4UMF NEWS ) Scarface Mansion For Sale:
The mansion used in the filming of the 1983 Al Pacino film “Scarface” is on the market — and on sale.
While the movie is set in Miami, the mansion is actually in Santa Barbara. The estate was originally built in 1906 by well-known architect Bertram Goodhue. It is elaborate in every sense of the word, with multiple pools, layers of outdoor gardens and nearly 10,000 square feet on more than 10 acres. Statues, palm trees and colonnades are prominently featured indoors and outdoors.
The exquisite details are endless: High ceilings, fountains, fireplaces, courtyards, hidden patios, gold-lead detailing and a terra-cotta roof and a dining room with museum-quality painted ceiling.
It is no surprise the estate is called, “El Fureidis” which appropriately means “Tropical Paradise.” Rolling green lawns set the mind at ease as one wanders the magical grounds. Take in the ocean and mountain views as the sun sets over a personal piece of heaven.
While the setting is dramatic and enticing, the right buyer hasn’t been found yet. The property was originally listed a year ago for $35 million, and didn’t make the list of the most expensive homes for sale. It is now nearly half-price, a deal at only $17.9 million.
Perhaps the surprisingly small number of bedrooms for the grand scale of the house is a weakness, with only 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Nonetheless, this is a truly historic property with layers of history in a truly unique tropical oasis.
