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 Robin 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 two years ago.

The 15-bedroom, Tudor-style manor house, Old Mill Farm, built in 1926, is the centrepiece of a 75 acres estate.

It boats incredible period detail including 17th century English oak panelling, walk-in fireplaces, exposed beams and leaded glass windows.

The main living area is a vast hall with a 12-metre 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 Robin in their divorce - bought the house with Robyn in 1994, but put it up for sale for $39.5m 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.
