The house where the 1983 film “Scarface” was filmed has now been put on sale for $35 million. Directed by Brian DePalma, the film chronicles the rise and fall of Cuban refugee, Tony Montana (Al Pacino).
The Mediterranean Revival mansion was designed by architect Bertram Goodhue, known for such buildings as the Los Angeles Central Library and the Nebraska State Capitol. Even though the movie was set in Miami, the house that was used for the shoot is actually located in Santa Barbara, California.
The interior recently underwent a multimillion dollar renovation that modernized the living spaces, including kitchen appliances, while still keeping the majority of the original fixtures in place. The home sits surrounded by mature palms on 10 acres in Santa Barbara County. The house is nearly 10,000 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a musician’s balcony overlooking the dining room and a roof deck that has views of the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands.
The formal dining room’s barrel ceiling is painted in 24k gold leaf and depicts a scene of Alexander the Great conquering Persepolis by Henry Wadsworth Moore, with the artist’s original signature remains on the artwork.
