Dr. Phil

, as straight-shooting TV host


Phil McGraw

is best known, and his wife, Robin, have listed their Mediterranean villa in Beverly Hills at $16.5 million.

The couple is selling because they have bought a hillside view home that they've been admiring for years.

The walled and gated property that they are selling sits on nearly three-quarters of an acre. It includes a main house, a detached guesthouse, an outdoor dining room and a swimming pool. There is a two-story entry, a theater, a gym, a billiard room, temperature-controlled wine storage, eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The pair bought the house in 2002 for about $7.5 million, according to Times archives.

Further details on their new purchase were not available.

McGraw, 59, started his daily "Dr. Phil" show in 2002. He has a doctorate in clinical psychology and is a bestselling author.

Billy Dolan of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, has the listing.
