When I think of mansions in Malibu, CA, I do not envision homes like Mel Gibson’s house. Sure, the mansion — which sits on a 5.5 acre estate overlooking the ocean — is full of brick and stone and raw wood beams and is beautiful. But it is not the kind of open, airy house you imagine on the ocean. In fact, it looks like something that belongs in the mountains of Montana or Colorado.
But hey, when you have Mel Gibson’s money, you get to live in the type of house you want to live in. He wanted to live in this ‘Old World’ pad. To each his own.
So what is in the house? Other than five-bedrooms and five-bathrooms, the house features several outdoor living areas that include a private sun deck and two pools (one of which is a full regulation lap pool), a detached guest house, an additional structure that operates as a pool house/gym. Stone archways lead you down a magically lit pathway to private sun deck and two pools, including a full regulation lap pool.
Gibson purchased this house in 2008 for $11.5 million from David Duchovny and Tea Leoni. So he stands to make a hefty profit if he gets his asking price of $17.5 million.
