Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Mel Gibson has been trying to sell a few of his houses for quite a while now and this one, located in the Serra Retreat neighborhood, has been on sale since he divorced his ex-wife Robyn. The house was originally listed for $14,500,000, but after a couple realtor changes and price drops, it can now be had for a cool $11,750,000.

The home is situated on 2.56 sprawling acres which include fruit orchards, organic gardens, a tennis court, a two-story entertainment area with a built-in barbecue, a swimming pool, spa, three guest houses, a detached gym, and a garden cabana with game room that opens up to the backyard. The main hacienda (sounds so chic, don’t you think? “Where are going this weekend? I’m going to my hacienda. Ole!”) has 6 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a truly unique chef’s kitchen.

I’ll tell this… A hacienda is not the kind of house I imagine living at, but I’d love to have it as a country house. Somewhere to go to enjoy the weekends and breathe some fresh air. What about you? Take a look and tell me what you think of this place!



Gorgeous iron gates.

You May Come In

Notice the name of the farm on the right.


The property is surrounded by trees and gardens, adding even more privacy.


Very beautiful gardens.

Getting Close

The garages.

The Main House

Hacienda in the best style.


Isn’t it so inviting?


The doors are like a treasure. Gorgeous!

Living Room

The furnishings look great in this kind of house.


I simply love white sofas like these ones, but I don’t attempt to have them with 2 (almost 3) small children around the house.

Living and Dining

A good view of the living room and dining room.


I’d like to have more comfortable furniture here, but I really like this space.

Chefs and Bricks

I’m sure this kitchen was used by Mel’s chef. Take a look the ranges. Now, this is still so charming and I love, love, love the brick ceiling and floor.


That green chandelier is just the perfect touch for this kitchen. The cabinets could be updated, but I find them to go pretty good with the tiles and the house overall.

Eating Area

The hacienda’s slow and colorful lifestyle.


I’d love to read a newspaper or magazine in the sun here every morning.


A place I’d curl up in with a book or just to analyze life and dream…


Every room in this house feels totally relaxed. I think that’s the purpose of this place: Go there and relax.

Master Bedroom

I love, love this room! The bed is gorgeous, but I think the area needs more furniture. Adding some chairs and a rug would make it feel cozier. But I’m truly in love with this bedroom, especially the ceiling.

Master Bathroom

So charming!

Another Bathroom

I’m not a huge fan of this one.


Who wouldn’t like to spend sunny days here, right?

Brain & Muscles

Chess, anyone?


Or would you prefer tennis?

Man’s Cave

Of course, Mel Gibson needed to have a “man cave!”


I can picture Mel here laughing out loud with friends.


Every man space should come with a BBQ like this one.

    *** I have PLENTY of CHECKS… so, I wonder if he’d take post-dated ones til 2050!!!!! XO, Linda ***

  2. Pepe said,

    I love this house! Love the tiles, ceilings, the doors! I would add more furniture and decorations, though

  3. SizzleandZoom said,

    Lovely home. Love the style. I could get used to living in the country. This is beautiful.

  4. Barbara@HausDesign said,

    I really love this house, especially the approach with all of the levels surrounded by all of that lush greenery. I agree that it does need more furniture – I assume because it is staged at this point…but I would gladly take care of that!

  5. The enchanted home said,

    Very interesting….love the grounds. Beautiful and lush, some of the interiors feel dark and dated. Love the kitchen and that brick ceiling wow! Many beautifl elements here however, and I think with some lightening up of the furniture, it could be smashing!

  6. michele@hellolovelyinc said,

    really a charming house with personality and liveability!


  7. Alexandra Brooks said,

    Hacienda-style does have its charm. ;*}

  8. Susan Sutherlin said,

    Looks like it needs a little refreshing . . .

  9. TheDecorGirl said,

    The tilework is amazing! I like how the interiors fit with the architecture of the home. Yeah, it could use a little spiffing up here and there but the rustic nature is true to form. The ceiling in the kitchen, though not for me (thinking of all the kitchen grease & grime) it is wonderful.

  10. Splendid Sass said,

    Oh give me the tennis court, please! How is my friend doing these days. Have been crazy busy and at the beach.
    Ready to slow down now. How are you feeling?
    I LOVE THIS HOUSE! Does he come with the house? Not really.
    Have a great week, Luciane.

  11. Maria Killam said,

    Way to rustic for me but interesting to see!

  12. Sheila Zeller said,

    Lots of beautiful features to enjoy in this one…

  13. Desiree @ CHIC COASTAL LIVING said,

    Beautiful home! Would love to rent something like that with my whole family! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love yours!

  14. sarah said,

    WOW its totally amazing

  15. Ann said,

    Oh I love hacienda style houses…

    they seem exude a feeling of family love.

    Too bad Mel is having quite a crisis in the family department.

  16. Cole@LavishProperty said,

    Beautiful, very old-world!

  17. The Texas Peach said,

    Really wishing I had 12 million right now! Wow, you had me at the front gate. Simply gorgeous! I love everything about the kitchen, except for the tile backsplash. I agree with you about the master bedroom. It could use more furniture. The yellow tile in the master bathroom is a little too bright for my taste. The home does have a very welcoming and warm feel to it. The “Man Cave” is pretty fantastic!

  18. Nichole@40daysof said,

    I really love this property. It’s so sad that it’s not being lived in and enjoyed.

  19. classiccasualhome.com said,

    How about those beautiful trees and gorgeous gates!? Feels like a very extravagant vacation home.
