For $1.95 Million, Live in a DC Penthouse that Scarface Would Call Home
“I suppose you expect me to talk?” — James Bond, 007
“No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die.” — Auric Goldfinger, Goldfinger
A recently listed 8,500 sq. foot penthouse located in the well-known “Towers” for $1.95 million is, according to the realtor, “right out of a James Bond film!” While this place certainly has lots of 1960s panache and charm, to me it screams 1980s. If you are a Scarface fan, you might agree that this place could easily have been Tony Montana’s penthouse. Updated in 1981, the condo, like Tony’s house in Miami, boasts flat, gold-colored shower stalls, an interior elevator, white marble floors and a “Velvet Room.” There is no doubt that, like Marty McFly and the War on Drugs, a room lined in velvet is signature 1980s.
You be the judge. You may actually want to snap it up, because at $224 per square foot, it is a great deal. That is if you can afford the HOA fees, which are a villainous $7,000 per month. Here is the link to the listing: click here
