Is a 500-acre spread in Costa Rica not private enough? That's the reason Mel Gibson is giving for listing his tropical getaway, Hacienda Dorada, for sale. The Hollywood Reporter reports
that Gibson's property is up for sale through Engel & Volkers
for $35 million because the oceanfront property is no longer private enough and he is plagued by paparazzi when he is there. The estate on the Nicoya Peninsula has a seven-bedroom main house, a pair of two-bedroom homes, each with a private pool. The property is staffed full time. He brought the property in 2007 for $25.8 million.
Gibson may be in for a bit of a wait if he wants to sell this one. Earlier this year he finally sold Old Mill Farm,
his 75-acre Greenwich, Connecticut estate. It went for nearly $24 million after spending three years on the market and having a series of price cuts. He bought the property in 1994 for $9.3 million.
His Malibu property, Lavender Hill Farm, where his ex-wife Robyn lived, hit the market earlier this year for $14.5 million
is still listed but with a lower price of $12.75 million.
