Mel Gibson Finally Sells Old Mill Farm
Old Mill Farm is a design by architect Charles Lewis Bowman built in 1926 for his horse-loving client, G.L. Ohrstrom. The home is one of the last great manor homes in Greenwich and is significant not just for the architecture but for the fact that it has 77 acres of land. The home itself is an Elizabethan-inspired Tudor mansion of 15,800 square feet and the property has 15 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms total. The jaw-dropping room of the place is the great hall which has a 40-foot cathedral ceiling with a stone minstrel's gallery, walk-in fireplace and leaded glass ceilings. The grounds, which were done by landscape designer James Doyle, include formal gardens and a maze. There is also a terrace pool, tennis court, greenhouse, stable, staff houses, log cabin and a pond on the property.
One thing that might not be going along with the property is the mural in the dining room. A sharp-eyed commenter recently pointed out that the Maxfield Parrish painting Sing a Song of Six Pence which is shown in the dining room in these listing pictures from Sotheby's Realty is set to be auctioned off for an estimated $2.5-3.5 million next month.
One of Gibson's other properties, his Lavender Hill Farm in Malibu, remains on the market for $14.5 million.
