Producer Martin Bregman–most famous for his work on “Scarface,” but also for “Dog Day Afternoon,” “Serpico,” and “Carlito’s Way,”–first listed his lavish, European-style Midtown East apartment a year ago, asking $8.9 million. The co-op at 417 Park Avenue has since gotten a price chop to $7.9 million in January and back up to an ambitious $9.9 million in August, and the Post now reports that it’s back down to $7.9 million, as well as an $18,000/month rental. The flip-flopping residence is located in a stately, Emory Roth-designed co-op at 55th Street and features posh details like ornately carved fireplace mantles, a wood-paneled library with a built-in wet bar and hidden movie projection screen, and a television that comes down from the master bedroom ceiling.
The 4,000-square-foot apartment has a huge entry gallery, enough space for two sitting areas in the living room, a formal “dining salon” that can accommodate 12, and a windowed eat-in kitchen with a butler’s pantry.
The four bedrooms are located in their own separate wing, and there’s also a laundry room and maid’s room that could be used as a home office.
The master suite has an impressive bathroom/dressing room.
Since it’s been listed, reports have said that Bregman used his personal home to film scenes for several of his movies after 1983, though it seems unknown which titles. “Scarface” director Brian De Palma also made real estate headlines when he bought a second unit in Greenwich Village’s 1 Fifth Avenue back in March.
