Tom Cruise has listed his massive and secluded Telluride, Colorado custom-designed home for $39.5 million. In 2014, the home was put up for $59 million, but it wasn’t officially listed under the pretense that Cruise wasn’t ready to give up the estate just yet.
Cruise had been making plans for an estate when he originally purchased the land back in 1992. Later on, he built a 10,000 square foot home which was completed in 1994 and added a guest home, totaling 11,512 square feet of living space between the two. The property holds 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms.
The sprawling 320-acre estate includes a long list of amenities such as a game room, a makeshift motor-cross track, an in-ground trampoline, a foosball table and piano, a fitness center, two fireplaces, an outdoor terrace, and a three-car garage. The home also has a mile-long drive to the main house from the gated entrance, which would cost about $4 million to make today.
The property is filled with rustic charm. The main house has high-beamed ceilings, cedar-paneled walls, and stone fireplaces. The kitchen itself is designed head-to-toe in cedar. It includes a large center island, custom cabinetry, and a wood-paneled oversize fridge.
Telluride real estate expert Anne-Britt Østlund of Mountain Rose Realty says on the property, "Cruise's home is located in a spot that is beyond National Park beauty, completely private, yet with the most sweeping views of the iconic Mount Wilson massif that you'll ever see."
Although the home is over 25 years old and has not been recently used, it has remained in a pristine state as Cruise ensured the estate was built at the highest level of construction. The home was built for privacy and offers unspoiled natural beauty. The natural surroundings allow for plentiful outdoor activities such as skiing, snowmobiling, golfing, horseback riding, hiking, and biking. With mountain vistas all around, the property includes extensive forested trails to explore the natural surroundings as well.
