The out-this world mansion used for the now infamous Brian de Palma’s 1983 Scarface is up for sale. “El Fureidis" was as much a character in the gangster movie as was the lead Al Pacino with its jaw-dropping opulence showcasing the sheer decadence of Miami in the early 80’s.
The Roman, Persian, Arabic and Spanish-styled mega mansion is listed for a mere $34 million and comes with four massive bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Built in 1906, the 10-acre property boasts 125 varieties of tree along with ornamental water fountains, pools and pathways.
The location’s exterior was used for the film’s portrayal of the luxury Coral Gables in Florida, despite Fureidis' actual location in Montencito, California.
The filming of Scarface was not the first time the home has had its brush with stardom. It is believed John F. Kennedy spent his honeymoon with Jacqueline Kennedy there. Other famous guests have included Albert Einstein and Winston Churchill.
