Originally located in Montecito, California, this grand and absolutely stunning mansion, known as El Fureidis or Little Paradise, was Tony Montana’s home in the epic gangster movie “Scarface” directed by Brian De Palma in 1983.
Situated on over 10 acres, the beautiful 10,000 sq ft mansion was designed by architect Bertram Goodhue back in 1906. It has four huge bedrooms with four stunning bathrooms, five half-baths, living room and a conversation room, a luxuriously spacious patio, a gorgeous guest house, a bar and way too many swimming pools.
The Meditteranean-style home came into the market for sale at a whopping $35 million but finally sold for $12.26, which was well worth its value, says Robert Riskin, the mansion’s listing agent. The view of the Pacific Ocean from each and every window in the dream house with the many palm trees behind the mansion makes it look like Heaven on Earth.
Originally it was a botanic garden and soon enough became one of the most popular must-visit spots in California. Not many people know this, but our famous comedian and celebrity figure, Charlie Chaplin got married to Oona O’Neil in this stunning mansion. We can’t imagine how glamorously star-studded the place must have been that night! Just like the movies!
