Mel Gibson's former family mansion is being sold for $33 million. The Lethal Weapon star's Connecticut home - which he shared with ex-wife Robyn and their seven children until their bitter divorce in 2011 - has been put on the market by its present owner for $9 million more than he bought it for two years ago. The 15-bedroom, Tudor-style manor house, Old Mill Farm, built in 1926, is the centerpiece of a 75-acre estate. It boasts incredible period detail including 17th century English oak paneling, walk-in fireplaces, exposed beams and leaded glass windows. The main living area is a vast hall with a 12-meter high cathedral ceiling and a huge fireplace. The house, located in the exclusive area of Greenwich in Connecticut, also boasts a huge swimming pool, manicured outdoor maze, life-size chess set and four poster beds. Mel - who had to give up half of his estimated $850 million fortune to Robyn in their divorce - bought the house with her in 1994, but put it up for sale for $39.5 million in 2007. It wasn't sold until 2010 when it finally went for $24 million. Mel has also recently put his and Robyn's estate in Malibu, California, up for sale at $11.8 million, but it has yet to find a buyer.
