GREENWICH, Conn. – The former Greenwich residence of one of Hollywood’s most volatile leading men, Mel Gibson, is on the market. Again.
The Aussie import sold the palatial mansion back in 2010 for $24 million. In 2012, the current owners are hoping someone will pay a cool $33 million to move in, a price increase of roughly 37.5 percent over two years.
The home was listed for sale in May of this year and then taken off the market. Now, according to Realtor.com, Old Mill Farm is back on and ready to dazzle perspective buyers. Originally designed in 1926 by architect Charles Lewis Bowman, Old Mill is the definition of a high-end luxury estate, from the top of its 40-foot cathedral ceiling all the way down to its wine cellar. Old Mill is situated on 75 very well-manicured acres which house formal gardens, a sculpted maze, a life size chess set, a terraced pool, tennis court, greenhouse, stable, staff houses, log cabin and a stream fed pond.
Inside the 15,800-plus-square-foot mansion you will find six fireplaces, a home theater, library, a spa, chef’s kitchen, in-law apartment and a security system to keep it all safe.
With all that opulence, you probably won’t even notice the extra 37 percent tacked onto the price. But who’s counting?
