Swanky Scarface Mansion Finally Sells at Huge Discount

Originally listed for $35 million, the 10,000-square-foot Montecito, CA mansion that played Tony Montana's Miami palace in the 1983 Scarface has finally sold for just a little more than a third of that price. Spread out over nearly 10 acres, the four-bedroom El Fureidis ("Little Paradise") mixes "Roman and Middle Eastern influences" and includes lavish features like a dining room with a barrel ceiling painted in 24-carat gold. Those influences extend to the grounds, which include "Persian-style" gardens. The 1906 house was designed by Bertram Goodhue (who also designed the LA Public Library's Central branch Downtown), and served as a wedding venue for Charlie Chaplin and Oona O'Neill.
