According to the Daily Mail, Mel Gibson’s house in Greenwich, Connecticut, just won’t sell. It’s been on the market since 2007, when the price was set at $39.5 million. Two years later, it has been slashed to a paltry $29.75 million. So if you love a good bargain, now’s your chance to snap it up!
“Old Mill Farm” was designed and built by the architect Charles Lewis Bowman in 1926 for a client who loved horses. It has 15 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms, with 16,000 square feet.

The house sits on 77 acres. The grounds and formal gardens were beautifully designed by landscape designer James Doyle.
Gibson has been in the news a lot lately since Robyn, his wife of 28 years and the mother of his 7 children, filed for divorce. Soon after, he announced that he is expecting an 8th with his Russian girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. He said we can now refer to him as “Octo-Dad.” (I’d rather not.)
