El Fureidis (Little Paradise or Pleasure Gardens) is a 10,000-square-foot (930 m2) historic estate built in 1906 on 10 acres in Montecito, California. The Roman, Persian, Arabic and Spanish-styled architecture is one of only five houses designed by the American architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue. El Fureidis is most famous for being the source of rare palm trees now found in Disneyland's Adventureland and Jungle Cruise ride. It was also used in the main outside location shots for Tony Montana's Coral Gables mansion in the 1983 film Scarface. The El Fureidis estate was last on the market in 2006 for $37,500,000. It has been reported that Mark Cuban is the current owner of the estate.
