A compound in Malibu owned by divorced couple Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore Gibson has sold for $9,261,250.
Described as an "old world hacienda," the main house features hand-painted details, stone and hardwood floors, several fireplaces, six bedrooms and 51/2 bathrooms. The master suite has a sitting room with one of the fireplaces and two walk-in closets. The property includes three self-contained guesthouses, a two-story entertainment pavilion with a kitchen and fireplace, a separate media room, a gym, a lighted tennis court, a swimming pool, a spa and mature pepper, oak and avocado trees.
The Gibsons, who were married in 1980, bought the property from singer-songwriter Rick Springfield and his wife, Barbara, in 1989 for close to its listing price of $3 million, according to L.A. Times archives. Springfield, 63, won a Grammy in 1981 for his hit "Jessie's Girl."
