The 61-year-old actor has listed his five-bedroom Malibu mansion and the real estate company selling the property, which also has four bathrooms, believe the "magnificent" house is "unlike anything you have ever experienced".

According to the listing on Compass' website, it states: "Unlike anything you have ever experienced. Pass through a private gate down a long driveway to a truly one of a kind "Old World" estate on nearly 5.5 acres.

"This magnificent & secluded property includes a stunning five-bedroom main house with enchanting outdoor living areas, plus detached guest house and separate pool house/gym."

Clearly, home is where the Braveheart is for Mel, and much like the setting of the 1995 classic movie - in which he played Scottish hero William Wallace - there are beautiful stone archways and turreted roofs aplenty.

The Hollywood actor bought the property for $11.5 million from 'The X-Files' star David Duchovny and his then-wife Tea Leoni - who he split from in 2014 after 17 years of marriage - in 2008, and it has clearly gone up in value considerably.

Those in need of a bit of relaxation might be keen on the plush pad as it comes with two pools and a sun deck, while it is located just nine miles from the stunning coastal city of Santa Monica.

Earlier this year, Mel sold his former love nest in Sherman Oaks, California - which he once shared with his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva - for $2.1 million, despite buying it eight years ago for $2.4 million.
