Mel Gibson's Tudor-Style Mansion in Greenwich
July 03, 2009 - Connecticut
Soon-to-be-divorced actor Mel Gibson has cut the price of his Greenwich, Connecticut to $29.75 million, almost $10 million below the original asking price.
The Tudor-style mansion has been on the market since 2007, when it was first listed for $39 million, and last year, Gibson reduced the price to $35 million.
The Old Mill Farm, as it is known, was designed by architect Charles Lewis Bowman & built in 1926.
This property is the last of the great manor homes on Greenwich & enjoys over 77 acres of land with the estate.
The Elizabethan-inspired Tudor mansion features 15,800 square feet of living space.
Along with 15 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms, the property features a tennis court, private pond, formal gardens, a greenhouse and terrace pool.
Gibson bought the property in 1994 for a mere $9.25 million. An orthodox Catholic, he apparently decorated the place to have the feel of a monastery.
