Mel Gibson's Former Greenwich Estate Returns with High Price

New, 5 comments

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Greenwich, Conn.
Price: $33,000,000
The Skinny: A-lister and recent controversy magnet Mel Gibson sold this 75-acre Greenwich estate back in April 2010 for a little less than $24M. That was a discount of over $5M off the final asking price, which had been chopped down from jaw-unhinging $39.5M. Now that very same property, dubbed Old Mill Farm, has returned to market for $33M. According to the brokerbabble, the 15,800-square-foot main house has just undergone a "new restoration/renovation," but there's little evidence of it, what with the aging furniture and worn carpets. If the interiors are a bit underwhelming, the grounds are utterly amazing, with formal gardens, a giant chess set, a swimming pool, tennis court with picturesque stone hut, and even a hedge maze. For those not afraid to spend upwards of $30M on a fixer-upper, this is just the ticket, one of Greenwich's last remaining grand estates.
