See Inside Mel Gibson's Malibu Home
The actor just listed his Medieval manor overlooking the Pacific Ocean for $17.5 million.

Mel Gibson recently put his sprawling Malibu estate on the market. Set on five-and-a-half acres, the secluded property overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The 61-year-old's abode is not your typical California coastline home, though. The house has a Medieval theme, complete with two large wooden crosses, rosary beads, and representations of Mary and Jesus. Scroll down for a look inside.

The property is protected by a private gate that leads to a long driveway.

There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms in the main house, Trulia reports.

There's a separate pool house that contains a gym.

There are two pools on the property.

Gibson reportedly purchased the house through a trust in 2008 for $11.5 million.

He bought it from fellow actors David Duchovny and Téa Leoni.

There's lots of wood.

Including wooden crosses.

Gibson, who directed and produced The Passion of the Christ, "turned several fireplace mantels into Christian shrines complete with Medieval regalia, including two large wooden crosses, rosary beads, and depictions of Jesus and Mary," according to Mansion Global.

And exposed beams.

The house is 6,578 square feet.

The library has leather furniture and more religious objects.

With more than five acres, it has plenty of outdoor space for entertaining.

Here's one of the five bedrooms.

The leather theme continues here.

Notice the rustic charm of the bathrooms.

The house is a mix of stone, brick, stucco, and wood.

But wait, there's more!

The property comes with access to the La Costa Beach and Tennis Club where, Variety reports, the membership fee runs about $100,000 with an additional $670 in annual dues.
