Since Mel Gibson’s Tudor mansion in Greenwich has been such a popular post around here, I thought you all might like to get a gander at another one of his properties that’s on the market now. This “hacienda-style retreat” in Malibu has the romantic-sounding name Lavender Hill Farm. It’s currently on the market for $14.5 million, so get out your checkbooks!
Rumor has it this is where his ex-wife Robyn has been living, but that they are both planning to return to Australia with the kids in light of his legal woes with Oksana Grigorieva, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his one-year old daughter Lucia.
The kitchen looks a little dated, but it’s an interesting shape:
I think this yellow and white-checked floor is really fun–it just looks cheerful. And, is it me, or do the sinks look short? I’m wondering if this is a kids’ bath, perhaps:
The estate covers nearly 3 acres, and they’re beautifully landscaped.
What do you think? Love it or leave it?
You can see many the rest of the photos on the property listing by Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker. More information about the house and its history on Luxist and The Real Estalker. (Thanks to Annia for sending me with this one!)
