At long last, “Top Gun: Maverick” is set to land in theaters at the end of May. A-lister Tom Cruise will step back into the cockpit and reprise his role as test pilot Maverick.
Now 59, the seemingly ageless performer has been box-office gold since the 1980s. His hits include “Cocktail,” “Jerry McGuire,” and “A Few Good Men.” The father of three also starred in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, the latest of which is the upcoming “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning.”
With the superstar set to take off on the big screen, we thought we’d take a spin through the actor’s real estate.
Along with starring in blockbusters over the decades, the “Mission: Impossible” star has been busy when it comes to pricey real estate. In many cases, the paparazzi-averse Cruise tends to buy up multiple lots in extremely private locales.
So don your aviators, and let’s head into the “property zone.”
The star’s latest “mission”: a move to a giant spread in Clearwater, FL. He dropped $9,580,500 on a 20,826-square-foot, two-level penthouse in 2017. It’s located in the Skyview tower, which was reportedly altered to accommodate Cruise, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
The actor’s lavish living quarters include four bedrooms, a gym, game room, home theater, roof deck with an infinity pool, hot tub, gardens, and a bar, according to the Times.
The penthouse boasts a private garage with a car elevator on the second floor. That level also apparently includes a flight simulator. (Perhaps Cruise could get in some practice for his “Top Gun” role?) There’s also office space and a sports storage area.
Cruise paid an additional $1,475,000 for three more condos in the Clearwater high-rise, perhaps for staff or relatives.
The building, developed by fellow Scientologist Moises Agami, is located just blocks from the Church of Scientology headquarters. Cruise has been a member of the church since 1986.
Terrific in Telluride
Cruise spent years amassing the land, then built a 10,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home in 1994.
The picturesque home was the setting for a photo shoot with Vanity Fair magazine featuring his daughter Suri with his then-wife Katie Holmes. Oprah Winfrey also interviewed Cruise at the home in 2008.
The main house includes a chef’s kitchen, fitness center, rec room, den, office suite, two fireplaces, and multiple terraces. There’s also a three-bedroom guest lodge.
Though secluded, the retreat is just minutes to Telluride and a two-hour private jet flight from L.A.
Lavish in Los Angeles
Before decamping to the Sunshine State, the busy actor let go of his holdings in La-La land.
The compound included a 10,000-square-foot mansion with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, a tennis court, a swimming pool, and a pair of guesthouses.
Initially listed for $13 million, that property featured two adjoining houses built in 2005 on an ultraprivate 2.75-acre lot. The compound consists of a three-bedroom French villa, a four-bedroom guesthouse, two standalone studios, and a quaint stone cottage.
Beverly Hills rental home with Holmes
Cruise and Holmes leased a mansion in the 90210 for $55,000 a month from 2001 through 2008.
Last offered for lease for $100,000 a month in 2016, the three-acre estate includes a nine-bedroom main house, a guesthouse, a pool with a spa, and a tennis court.
Crash pad in New York City
Cruise sold his longtime East Village loft in the American Felt Building for $3 million in 2013. He had picked up the pied-à-terre in 1984, following his starring role in “Risky Business.”
The two-bedroom, 2,200-square-foot unit is said to contain a state-of-the-art gym. It’s located on the 10th floor of the 12-floor building.
Cruise reportedly shared the condo with all three of his ex-wives, including Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman. The building housed other notable residents, including author Bret Easton Ellis and the Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti, the Real Deal reported at the time of the sale. Cruise’s loft was sold in an off-market deal.
