The World is Yours At This Scarface Mansion

Scarface Ariel View

How much would Tony Montana's place be worth these days?  David Cross and the Movoto blog try to figure it out.

Montana, outrageously successful drug dealer until his sudden demise, sure had a banging pad.  Place for the lions to live, an office with a balcony and a hidden gun closet, awe-inspiring stairway in the foyer, no extravagance was spared.

On the other hand, there was too much neon and garish decor.  And do you really want lions where you live?  Plus all of those outdated security devices will need a major upgrade.  All of this before we even start talking about vacuuming up all of the white powder that is EVERYWHERE in the place.

I only have two things in this life, and one of them is not a vacuum.

Oh well, those are all things that can be fixed.  What you need to know is that the place used in the movie was not actually in Coral Cables, Florida, but was in California.  So, putting a price on the place is a matter of transferring the specs and charging the square foot price of Coral Cables ($1,115!) and that gives you $11 million or so.
