Lisa Hochstein Lives in Scarface's House?!
Yes, and there's some drama surrounding her and Tony Montana's crib.
Say 'ello to 42 Star Island Drive, the home of Tony Montana in the infamous movie Scarface ... and now the home of Real Housewives of Miami star, Lisa Hochstein. When you're living in one of cinema's most memorable homes, it's only a matter of time before drama comes a'knocking, and it seems that time is now for Lisa.
With plans to rebuild the historic home 87-year-old home due to safety concerns, Lisa has caused a bit of a stir among the Miami community who believe that the home is an iconic piece of architecture and should remain mostly unchanged -- and be restored instead of being demolished. Lisa, however, feels differently.
"This is the home of our dreams," she said during a hearing at the Miami Beach Review Board on Tuesday. "We’re not trying to hurt anybody. We plan on living here for the rest of our lives. We just want to build a safe home for our family and this is our dream home so I hope that you guys approve this today."
No decision was ultimately made on whether Lisa's plans can go through, as the Board is waiting for a new engineering study's results in order to see if the concrete structure of the house is safe and would allow for restoration or if it would need to be replaced.
