Tony Montana’s Scarface crib goes on sale for $35m

Scarface05192014

If you’re looking for a new home awesome enough to house all of your Apple products in style, you’re not going to find one better than this.

A 10,000 square feet palace — newly on the market for a cool $35 million — it will be instantly recognizable to cinema buffs as the home of none other than Tony Montana in the 1983 movie Scarface.

Want more details? Built in 1904, the Montecito oceanview property sports 4 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, one of those all-important Byzantine “conversation rooms,” a load of gold leaf, and presumably a couple of stashed sub-machine guns. The grounds are around 10 acres, there’s a giant mural of Alexander the Great in the dining room, and JFK supposedly stayed there once.

If dropping the whole $35 million in one go sounds unrealistic, you’ll be happy to know that not long ago it was available for rent for just $30,000 per month. If it’s not immediately snapped up, maybe you could come to a similar arrangement with the present owner: a Russian billionaire who bought it in 2009.

A virtual tour (because, let’s be honest, none of us are ever getting close to this!) can be carried out at the link below.

And, yes, there’s enough room to store your whole iMac setup.
