First you get the money. Then you get the power. Then you get Tony Montana’s mansion.
Introducing your latest away-from-home splurge: the infamous manse from Brian De Palma’s ‘83 kitsch classic, available for rent right now.
Set in the hills just outside of Santa Barbara (not Miami), the House that Coke Money Built was originally named El Fureidis, or Little Paradise. That was 1908, back when developers were trying to make SoCal a vacation alternative to Italy.
And the result was cracked-out opulence: 10,000 square feet of filigreed interiors, cascading pools, and manicured gardens. Four bedrooms. Four bathrooms. But, shed a tear, Elvira, that Olympic-sized bathtub Tony smoked his stogies in? Not here.
The greed surrounding El Fureidis is as epic as Tony’s mound of yayo. Shortly after the movie debuted, the mansion was listed for $35 million. It “only” sold for $6.23M. Then it was renting for $150K a month. But now, for you, it’s a dope-nosed steal at $30k for 30 days.
