It was about two years ago that Mel Gibson unloaded his Greenwich, Connecticut estate for a little less than $24 million. <a href="http://curbed.com/archives/2012/05/18/mel-gibsons-former-greenwich-estate-returns-with-high-price.php" target="_blank">According to Curbed, that same estate is now back on the market for close to $33 million</a>. Take a tour of the actor's property aka Old Mill Farm, which features a restored main house, a huge life-size chess set, and a hedge maze.
Here's an aerial view of Gibson's former estate, which is set on over 75 acres.
Talk about a Great Hall. Here the cathedral ceilings soar 40 feet, leaded glass windows run rampant, and there's even a walk-in fireplace.
The Great Hall and the estate in general looks more like a museum or historic hotspot than an estate in Greenwich, Connecticut.

The wood-paneled library features a bevy of built-in shelving. Curbed points out that while the listing claims that the main house has been updated, the spread is still chock full of dated furniture and worn carpets. We couldn't agree more.
Here's a look at the kitchen in the Elizabethan-inspired Tudor mansion. Square footage in the home totals over 15,800 square feet.
According to the public listing, Old Mill Farm was built in 1926 by architect Charles Lewis Bowman for financier George Lewis Ohrstrom.
There are 15 bedrooms total on the expansive property.

The grounds are certainly impressive, though with over 75 acres, we imagine you'll have to hire a full-time gardner/landscaper to keep up the greenery.
In 2011, taxes paid on the property totaled close to $37,000. Yikes.
In addition to the tennis courts, other outdoor amenities include a log cabin, staff houses, a stable, and greenhouse.
