When he was 19, Stardom rose for Tom Cruise in 1983 and slipped into the hallway in Risky Business. Now in his fourth decade as one of the most successful and wealthy actors in the world, Tom owns homes in Beverly Hills. Clearwater, Florida, and a 320-acre ranch in Telluride, Colorado that he helped create and that is now for sale for $ 39.5 million.
According to Toptenrealestatedeals.com The Telluride home has a long history for Cruise. Here he enjoyed spending time with his children and much of his marriage to Katie Holmes. It was also the location of his last major interview with Oprah, a sequel to Tom’s luscious couch jumping episode with Oprah in 2005. Oprah loved the Cruise Ranch and its views so much that she later bought her own house nearby .
The first impression of Tom’s home, which drives up the kilometer-long driveway from the entrance gate, is the breathtaking view of the mountains and valleys. The 11,512 square meter living area was designed to take full advantage of the view. It comprises the 10,000 square meter main house with four bedrooms and a guest house with three bedrooms. The structures blend into the wooded surroundings and are clad with rustic bleached cedar wood and local stone with wooden beam ceilings and large glass surfaces. In addition to a large eat-in kitchen, a living room and a dining room for a crowd, there is a fitness room, a lounge and a library. The charming guest house is free-standing and in its own aspen grove. There are a total of seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
The facilities are equally impressive in every season. Outside there is a tennis, basketball or ice hockey sports field and a private network of trails with access to and views of the 14,000 foot mountains in the distance with a private gate into the Uncompahgre National Forest. There are hiking and riding trails as well as dirt bike and snowmobile trails that stretch over 320 hectares.
Telluride has long been a destination for celebrities who love to ski or just want to get away and take a break from their high-octane professional lives. Now it’s even more popular with second home buyers during the pandemic. Other stars who also find Telluride a great getaway include Robert Redford, Jerry Seinfeld, and designer Ralph Lauren.
As with most celebrities, Tom has taken his share of the gossip pages, be it about his marriages, children, or movie role formulas. However, as the reviewers of his award-winning films agree, Cruise doesn’t care what he says or does or what the latest gossip is. He’s one of the few actors who can be cast by any script in any film and will likely take the film to the top of the box office ratings. Tom’s upcoming films are Top Gun: Maverick and Mission: Impossible 7. He is known for taking risks on his films and even doing his own risky stunts. Rumor has it that he will take Elon Musk’s Space X rocket to the space station to film Mission: Impossible 7.
The listing agent for the Tom Cruise Telluride Ranch is Dan Dockray of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, Telluride, Colorado.
