Purchased by the A-List celebrity in 2007, Mel Gibson’s impressive luxury estate in Costa Rica is for sale. Previously listed by the actor in 2011 and again in 2012, Gibson has once again dropped the price tag of the now $29.75 million sprawling beachfront estate. Though plagued with some negative publicity after providing the setting for a few of Gibson’s drunken spats, this Costa Rican property is quite spectacular and extremely remote. Set atop a hilltop overlooking the sparkling Pacific Ocean, Mel Gibson’s “Playa Barrigona” brings a relaxing tropical ambiance, stunning views, and in true luxury fashion – a helipad.
Commanding a hilltop setting and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Villas at Playa Barrigona are located in the prestigious Nicoya Peninsula in the province of Guanacaste. Offering generous living spaces, stunning views and superb comfort, the celebrity real estate owned by Mel Gibson is situated among 500 sprawling acres of private Jungle in Costa Rica. This impressive beachfront estate is comprised of three separate homes nestled on the hilltop and are just a short walk away to a secluded white-sand beach.
Comprised of three separate villas, spread across 12 bedrooms and 14 baths, Playa Barrigona is both wonderfully private and brings you the utmost in attention to detail. Discover custom-fitted with native Costa Rican woods and Spanish and Italian tiles, an open living room with vaulted ceilings, a full chef’s kitchen, and multiple verandas boasting breathtaking Pacific Ocean and jungle vistas.
At the largest of the villas, Casa Guanacaste, you will find seven bedrooms and eight baths. Each of the two smaller villas, Casa Barrigona and Casa Dorada, feature two bedrooms and additional living spaces. Completing the amenities of this estate are a private pool, spectacular outdoor barbecue area and full air conditioning.
The nearby villages of Samara and Nosara offer local conveniences as well as quaint restaurants and shops, and international visitors can arrive into either San José or Liberia airports. From the airport, a drive or a short commuter flight will provide direct access to Carrillo or Nosara.
Gibson, now 58, won best picture and best director Oscars for “Braveheart” in 1995. This year he was in “Expendables 3” and he is also known for his roles in the “Lethal Weapons” films, “Signs” (2002) and “The Patriot” (2000).
Gibson has owned a small, yet impressive collection of international real estate, with homes in Malibu, Fiji, Montana, Greenwich, Australia and Los Angeles.
