Protected by a gated entrance, once through you’ll ascend up a mile-long driveway, which leads to the 10,000-square-foot cedar-and-stone main house and three-bedroom guest lodge. Sweeping mountain views surround the property, which has easy access to forested trails and is near the historic downtown area. The home was sold by Eric Lavey and Dan Dockray of LIV Sotheby's International Realty. “If you spend any amount of time in this unique estate, you recognize that it is truly a once-a-generation type of offering—which makes it a bit impossible to let that opportunity pass you by,” says Lavey, the the lead agent on the listing.

The property is surrounded by rolling hills and mountains.

Tom Cruise Sells His Longtime Telluride Ranch for $39.5 Million - See Inside!

The 320-acre Colorado property was the setting for the actor's 2008 Oprah interview, and where he and then-fiancee Katie Holmes shared the first photos of daughter Suri in 2006

tom cruise telluride mansion

Tom Cruise is officially saying goodbye to his 320-acre estate in Telluride, Colorado.

The actor, 58, has sold the 7-bedroom, 9-bathroom property where he famously sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2008 and, a year and a half earlier, opened up to Vanity Fair alongside then-fiancée Katie Holmes , sharing the first photos of their daughter, Suri.

The home is was listed for $39.5 million in March, with lead agent Eric Lavey and Dan Dockray of Sotheby's International Realty . It has now sold at asking.

According to the home's listing, the secluded, sprawling ranch was "custom-built for privacy, where unspoiled natural beauty, sweeping mountain vistas and outdoor recreation abound."

There's an impressive 11,512 square feet of living space split between an almost 10,000-square-foot main house and a guest house with three bedrooms.

Warm wood is the star of the show throughout the interior, featuring heavily in the furnishings, flooring, walls and even the kitchen's counters and island.

Amenities on the property include a game room that currently holds a billiards table, foosball table and piano; a fitness center; two fireplaces; an outdoor terrace and a three-car garage.

"Enveloped in mountain majesty and boasting extensive forested trails, this secluded estate - accessed via a scenic one-mile drive from a secure gated entry - is only minutes from historic downtown Telluride for world-class skiing and golf," the listing notes.

According to Vanity Fair , Cruise began making plans for the compound more than 30 years ago. He completed it in 1994, and put it on the market for $59 million back in 2014.

In her 2006 interview with Cruise and Holmes, 42, Vanity Fair 's Jane Sarkin described the home as having the feeling "of a sprawling lodge or chalet , with rustic, log-cabin touches-informal, airy, built with honey-colored deadwood from Oregon."

According to Sarkin, Holmes, Cruise and their kids (Suri, then 5 months old, and Cruise's son Connor , now 26, and daughter Isabella , now 28) spent their days at the ranch riding around a makeshift motocross track, jumping on an in-ground trampoline, playing golf and sitting around an outdoor fire pit.

Tom cruise sells colorado home for $39.5m.

Tom Cruise has sold his Colorado compound for its full $39.5 million asking price.

He was cruisin’ for a sale — and, boy, did he get one.

Just two months after listing his Colorado estate for $39.5 million, actor Tom Cruise has sold the 320-acre spread for its full asking price, its listing brokerage told The Post.

Tom Cruise's 320-acre estate in Telluride is nestled in the mountains for privacy.

The property snoops at the Wall Street Journal first reported news of the sale Friday. Listing agent Dan Dockray, of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, told the paper that the Telluride property entered contract within its first week on the market.

Kitchen

“It all really depended on who had their Gulfstream warming up on the tarmac to get out there first,” Eric Lavey, Dockray’s colleague, told the Journal.

The handsome wood-heavy home has beamed ceilings and oversize windows.

The March debut of the listing marked the home’s first time publicly available for sale. In 2014, Cruise — known for his roles in “Top Gun” and “Vanilla Sky” among many other films — hired a broker to market the property in a hush-hush manner for a much higher $59 million ask.

A nearly 10,000-square-foot home means room for a pool table.

Cruise spent several years designing the home, made with stone and cedar touches, which finished up in 1994. There are seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, and the home, nestled in the mountains, is built for privacy. It’s also accessed via a 1-mile driveway and stands behind a gate.

There are outdoor areas for lounging.

The main house measures nearly 10,000 square feet — and comes equipped with a chef’s kitchen, wood-beamed ceilings and oversize windows that look out to the mountains. Other perks include several fireplaces, a gym, a three-car garage and outdoor entertaining areas.

The grounds also have a three-bedroom guest lodge.

Telluride — a place to ski, a place to hike and a place to live if you’re in the market for a $39.5 million home.

Actor Tom Cruise, popular for his roles in “Top Gun” and “Mission Impossible,” is selling his 11,512-square-foot home. The 320-acre property went on sale Friday.

The custom-built house has seven bedrooms and nine full bathrooms, along with two fireplaces, a three-car garage, fitness center and a recreational area. The guest house has three additional bedrooms.

The house was completed by Cruise in 1994, built with privacy in mind. There is a mile-long driveway going up to the house that Dan Dockray of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty estimates would be about $4 million to build in the present day.

“[The house is] almost invisible from other properties because of where it sits,” said Dockray. “Everybody that’s lived in Telluride knows where it is, but a lot of people haven’t seen the house because you can’t see it from anywhere.”

Seven years ago, Cruise tried to sell his property for $59 million, but it was never publicly listed. Dockray said it was only softly marketed.

“I think [Cruise] wasn’t ready yet, although I can’t speak for the seller’s reasons,” Dockray said.

Dockray is confident this house will be gone in the next three months. Not only is it priced well, Dockray says, but it is also appealing to buyers looking for a change in scenery.

With the pandemic, people have been freed up to work from virtually anywhere. Dockray said that instead of people staying for two weeks out of the year, it could be months given the remote work environment.

Additionally, people who live in compact urban areas don’t have as much to do during a pandemic. The mountains offer a lot of outdoor activities that may appeal to city folk.

“We’ve never actually seen a market this strong — high end, low end, whatever,” Dockray said. “It’s actually super incredible. … I think there’s that lifestyle shift that people are just becoming aware of.”

Tom Cruise house

Tom Cruise has decided to let go of his  Telluride, Colorado estate .

Courtesy of Zillow

The home at 115 Francisco Way is now publicly listed for $59 million. According to  The Wall Street Journal , Cruise is selling the place because he hasn’t used it much over the past few years. 

Listing agent Bill Fandel of  Sotheby’s International Realty told The Wall Street Journal that the actor designed the native stone and cedar home himself. The project was finished in 1994, but rumors started circulating in 2007 that the Scientology follower was  planning to build an underground bunker to protect his family from an intergalactic alien attack.

There’s no mention of the bunker in the listing, but there’s definitely space for it. Tucked away on 298 acres of national forest land, the nearly 10,000-square-foot main residence has four bedrooms and six full bathrooms. There’s also a 1,600-square-foot guesthouse with three bedrooms and three full baths.

Inside Tom Cruise’s $40M Telluride Ski Chalet

tom cruise telluride mansion

Mission Impossible mega star Tom Cruise equipped his luxe alpine escape in Telluride, Colorado with all the bells and whistles. The 11,512-square-foot living space was built in 1994, and includes the 10,000-square-foot, four-bedroom main house and a three-bedroom guest house. Tom has owned the mountain retreat since the ’90s and sold the property for $39.4 million last spring. With ski season upon, we thought it was worth a peek. Scroll down!

tom cruise telluride mansion

Nestled deep within rolling meadows and mature forest, the Telluride home holds a lot of history for Tom, according to Dirt.com . It is where he enjoyed time with his children and much of his marriage to actress Katie Holmes. It was also the location of his last major interview with Oprah , who was so taken with his ranch and its views that she bought her own home nearby in 2016.

The grounds are beautiful in all seasons. Outside is a sports court for tennis, basketball or ice hockey and a private trail system. The property’s 298 acres are threaded with hiking and riding trails, and tracks for dirt bikes and snowmobiles — plus there’s a private gate leading to the Uncompahgre National Forest.

The living room features beamed ceilings with bleached cedar timbers, an oversized fieldstone fireplace and charming French windows to frame  dramatic views of the tall peaks outside.

In this casual seating area, the walls are clad in rustic cedar timbers assembled by dovetail joinery; and the angular fireplace built from local stone echoes the mountains outside.

The dining room continues the Western theme, with a metal cowboy chandelier and art. The trestle table and farmhouse wood chairs drive home the casual, family friendly vibe.

The chalet kitchen features luxury appliances — including three refrigerators. A hanging wrought iron pot rack gives the space a personal feel.

The games room also embraces a Western spirit, with Navajo-style rugs laid causally on the wood plank floors and a cowboy-theme parchment shade.

Step inside Tom Cruise’s colossal Colorado estate

After 30 years, the hollywood icon's colorado home has gone on the public market for the very first time. and we're inviting you inside....

Words: Izzie Price

After the socially-distanced year we’ve all had, you’d be forgiven for saying you never want to isolate again. And on the whole, we’d agree with you. But bear with us for a moment: because this colossal Colorado estate may give you cause to rethink.

This secluded luxury home is the last word in privacy. But there’s good reason for that, because this is an A-list home. Since its construction, and for the past 30 years, it has belonged to acting legend Tom Cruise — and now, managed by Sotheby’s, it has been listed on the public market for the very first time.

tom cruise telluride mansion

Cruise bought the plot way back in 1994, and had the house custom-built to his exact specifications. And it certainly has the stamp of exclusivity: a mile-long driveway is guaranteed to build both expectation and excitement, while the mountain surroundings, trademark Colorado aspen trees and thick snow create an atmosphere of breathtaking natural beauty. And that’s before you’ve even pulled up at the house.

Once you’ve made it down the driveway, the house looks so natural in its setting that it could have sprung from the frosty Colorado soil itself. Perched on top of an escarpment, it has views so dramatic guests must feel like they’re in a film themselves. And, boasting 11,512 square feet (the property) and 320 acres (the grounds), the block-busting $39,500,000 price tag is earned — every snow-clad step of the way.

The main house is the authentic aspen ski experience, with unprecedented levels of log-clad luxury. Decked out in native stone and bleached cedar timbers, the exterior presents both an undeniably impressive aesthetic and a warm refuge from the snow. Its sheer size — especially when positioned against that sweeping mountain backdrop — is grand and impressive, while the sloping roofs and stone chimneys promise warmth and cosiness in spades.

Upon stepping over the threshold, visitors’ expectations are met instantly. Think of the most luxurious ski lodge you’ve ever visited, and then triple those fur-rugged, fondue-drenched standards. It’s wood, wood, wood, as far as the eye can see; but not just any wood; expertly panelled walls and sleek, artfully designed vaulted ceilings.

It’s surprisingly light for a log-clad property. The generous windows allow for an influx of Colorado sunshine, and the lavishly proportioned rooms afford the place a general air of open-plan living. And there’s another benefit to those ample windows: picture-perfect panoramas every time you glance outside.

Cruise didn’t skimp on comfort, either. Skiers and outdoor adventurers will journey back from their outdoor activities at the end of the day and be greeted by an oasis of softly-lit warmth, with those windows glowing beacons of golden light in dark Colorado evenings. Enormous fireplaces, round stone walls and multiple cosy corners only add to the snugness, providing welcome, warming respite from even the harshest weather conditions.

tom cruise telluride mansion

And this comfort level continues upstairs. With seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, Cruise ensured no guest of his would ever have to queue for a shower. And, once his guests woke up refreshed from a blissful night’s sleep (a surety, after all that mountain air), the sun-kissed terrace must have proved the perfect spot for a morning cup of coffee.

Additionally, the property is mere minutes away from downtown Telluride, home to some of the best skiing in the world. And, if skiing isn’t quite daring enough for you, the estate also has its very own sports court, helipad, dirt-bike and snowmobile track — meaning any buyer could lead a life of action to rival Mr Cruise’s itself.

tom cruise telluride mansion

Never fear, though: the stunts aren’t compulsory. For those who’d rather not live life on the edge, the ranch is home to exclusive forested trails and mountainous terrain that’s a hiker’s paradise. The fun continues inside; that snooker table especially will have you shooting pool like Cruise in The Color of Money — and the dining table looks the perfect place for a post-game feast.

It’s safe to say that, by building this home, Cruise proved himself a talent in the real estate market as well as the film industry. The astonishing estate is the breathtaking result of many years planning, and is guaranteed to give its lucky buyer a taste of the A-list, luxury lifestyle. We take our hats off to Cruise and his vision: the man has created a magnificent mountain masterpiece.

Tom Cruise's Colorado Estate Just Sold for $39.5 Million

The home sits on 320 acres.

This story was originally published on 03/16/2020; it has been updated to reflect new information.

Cruise spent many years building the secluded estate surrounded by the mountains of Colorado, completing much of his work on the home back in 1994, according to a report by Sotheby's from 2014. But according to agents Lavey and Dockray, this wasn't Cruise's first attempt at selling the property. The two tell WSJ that Cruise was in the process of selling several years ago for an anticipated $59 million. However, the listing never made it to the public, “I’m not sure [Cruise] was ready to sell it yet,” Lavey told WSJ.

In addition to its gorgeous backdrop, it boasts numerous amenities, including a three-room guest lounge with an amazing view of snow-capped mountains and the beautiful outside greenery. Privacy is a key element in the design of this estate, which is why the property can only be accessed via a 1-mile driveway from a gated entry.

The listing also reports that the home has two fireplaces, a fitness center, a terrace, and a three-car garage. Despite the home being secluded, it's still only a 12-minute drive from downtown Telluride — known well for its ski resorts and golf courses. See the listing here.

Tom Cruise’s Colorado Home Fetches Full $39.5 Million Asking Price

The sale for the roughly 320-acre property in telluride closed just two months after hitting the market, newsletter sign-up, daily briefing.

Delivers the most important property news around the world to your inbox each weekday

The sale of Tom Cruise’s Telluride, Colo., estate has closed for the property’s full asking price of $39.5 million, just two months after he listed it for sale, according to the listing agents.

Listing agent Dan Dockray of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty said the property was actually in contract within roughly the first week. "It all really depended on who had their Gulfstream warming up on the tarmac to get out there first," said his colleague Eric Lavey, who also worked on the deal.

The ’Mission Impossible’ star previously tried to sell the property seven years ago.

Mr. Lavey said the deal is further evidence of how much the Colorado market has boomed over the past year. He said he’s seeing ultra-high levels of demand for large, private compounds with on-site sporting activities. The agents declined to comment on the identity of the buyer.

A spokeswoman for Mr. Cruise didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The roughly 320-acre property, which sits at the end of a mile-long driveway framed by a forest of aspen trees, borders a national forest on three sides. It includes a roughly 10,000-square-foot native stone-and-cedar home, which was completed by Mr. Cruise in 1994, as well as a three-bedroom guest house. The main house is designed in classic mountain style, with wood-paneled walls and stone fireplaces.

The property is packed full of sports-oriented amenities such as a large sports court, a dirt bike and snowmobile track and an extensive network of trails for hiking, snowshoeing and all-terrain vehicles.

The "Top Gun" and "Mission Impossible" star, 58, previously tried to sell the property seven years ago, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Tom Cruise is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. He has starred in major film franchises such as Mission Impossible, Jack Reacher , and Top Gun. He's also been featured in hit films like Jerry Maguire, A Few Good Men, and many others. He is also a four-time Oscar nominee. With a decorated acting resume, he can afford to live in private luxury. An example of this is Tom Cruise's $39.5 million former mansion in Telluride, Colorado.

Around the '90s when Cruise was still establishing his presence in the Hollywood scene, he acquired a nearly 10,000-square-foot mansion situated in the Rocky Mountain neighborhood. The Oscar nominee purchased the property for an undisclosed amount.

Fast forward to 2014, Cruise became open to the idea of selling the Rocky Mountain mansion. As a result, he initially privately listed the property for $59 million. But due to sentimental reasons, Cruise never fully pushed through with the public listing until 2021. After just two months on the market, Cruise sold the property for a cool $39.5 million.

Here are some photos of Tom Cruise's $39.5 million former mansion in Telluride, Colorado.

Outside of the home, Cruise probably didn't have any problems getting some fresh air. Aside from the surplus of green spaces, Cruise also enjoyed views of jets coming from and going to the Telluride Regional Airport from atop a hill. Moreover, the property also has a helipad nearby. With several aviation sightings, one cannot help but think about Cruise's remarkable acting performances in the pair of Top Gun movies.

Tom Cruise is one of the biggest Hollywood stars. So of course he is also one of the highest-paid actors in the industry today. Aside from his lucrative paychecks as an actor and a producer, he also enjoys a lot of earnings from his various endorsement deals. As per Celebrity Net Worth, Tom Cruise has a net worth of around $600 million.

Nevertheless, this is all the information that we have on Tom Cruise's $39.5 million mansion in Telluride, Colorado.

Tom Cruise is selling his longtime, custom-built Colorado ranch for $39.5 million

  • Tom Cruise is selling his Colorado ranch for $39.5 million.
  • Cruise first   shopped  the home  around  in 2014 for $59 million but didn't list it publicly.
  • The home sits on about 320 acres of land in Telluride and has a spa, guest house, and sports court.

Insider Today

"Mission: Impossible" star Tom Cruise is selling his secluded 320-acre Colorado ranch for $39.5 million, Katherine Clarke reports for The Wall Street Journal . But it's not the first time Cruise has sought a buyer for this property. The actor first shopped the Telluride, Colorado, home around in 2014 with a heftier reported price tag of $59 million. However, the current listing agents told Clarke that the property was never publicly listed then, saying they're "not sure [Cruise] was ready to sell it yet" back in 2014.

Cruise also appears to have actually added land to the property in the last seven years. A 2014 Journal report said that the home sat on 298 acres of land, while the current listing says it's on about 320 acres. 

Photos of the home shared with Insider show that the property is surrounded by mountains and tall trees

According to the listing , the ranch property has a 10,000-square-foot main house made of cedar and native stone as well as a separate 1,600-square-foot three-bedroom guest house. The main house is located a mile away from the front gates.

Eric Lavey and Dan Dockray, with luxury real-estate agency Sotheby's, have the listing. Lavey confirmed to Insider that Cruise owns the property and is behind the sale.

Representatives for Cruise did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment regarding the home sale. 

According to the listing, the property borders a national forest on three sides and has "extensive forested trails."

Related stories

The listing also notes that the home is located fairly close to downtown Telluride, which offers golfing and skiing. In 2017, Forbes crowned Telluride of the best ski resorts in the world, citing its scenic beauty as a draw.

Interior shots of the main house show exposed wood beams and a vaulted ceiling. The living room has a stone fireplace and large windows. 

The home also has a media room, gym, sports court, spa, and an office.

Clarke wrote for The Journal that the custom-built home was completed in 1994 after Cruise spent "several years designing and constructing" it.

Telluride is home to several other A-listers, including Oprah Winfrey, who bought a $14 million home there in 2015. Designer Ralph Lauren also owns a ranch just outside Telluride that, according to Elle Decor, is roughly as big as Manhattan. 

Cruise has reportedly made a number of other high-profile real-estate deals in the last decade

Cruise has reportedly finalized several high-value home sales and purchases in California, Florida, New York, and the UK in recent years. 

According to The Los Angeles Times , Cruise sold his Hollywood Hills home to actress Eva Longoria in 2015 for $11.4 million. Insider reporter Dennis Green previously wrote that the 2.75-acre property has a three-bedroom French villa with oak floors and a heated pool. 

The following year, Cruise sold his longtime 10,000-square-foot Beverly Hills home to investor Leon Black for $39 million. The Los Angeles Times reported at the time of the sale that the deal was finalized off-market. 

Two years after his back-to-back home sales in California, People reported in 2018 that Cruise had "downsized" to make Clearwater, Florida, his new home base, picking up a two-story penthouse with a gym, home theater and flight simulator, though that purchase wasn't confirmed at the time. Clearwater is also home to the international Scientology headquarters. Cruise has been a practicing Scientologist  for close to four decades and is one of its most prominent members.  

Also on the east coast, Cruise sold an East Village, New York City, condo in 2013 for $3 million.

Outside the US, Variety reported in 2015 that Cruise had listed his 11,000-square-foot East Grinstead, UK, property for $7.3 million. Cruise had purchased the property in 2006 with his then-wife, actress Katie Holmes. The home is located about 30 miles from London and close to the British Scientology headquarters. It sold the following year to singer-songwriter Peter Andre.
