Tom Cruise is on a mission: The A-lister wants to sell his massive Telluride ranch.
The Colorado spread is back on the market for $39.5 million. Eric Lavey and Dan Dockray of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty hold the listing.
The star of “Mission Impossible” had quietly shopped the property in 2014, at the much higher price point of $59 million. Now it’s officially on the market for the first time.
Cruise, 58, spent years amassing the land. He then had a 10,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home built on the property back in 1994. It’s reported that he no longer uses the ranch and has decided to pass this premium parcel along to its next steward.
The 320-acre mountain retreat was the location for a Vanity Fair magazine profile of the actor in 2006, featuring his daughter, Suri, with his wife at the time, Katie Holmes.
The movie star welcomed Oprah Winfrey to his couch in Colorado for an interview in 2008.
The action star’s home is “built for privacy,” as the listing notes, and offers “unspoiled natural beauty.”
Those natural surroundings include mountain vistas and plentiful outdoor pursuits, from skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing in the winter, to golf, horseback riding, hiking, and biking, during warmer months.
“The biggest draw is how much acreage you have,” says Lavey. “The driveway is over a mile along. The privacy level is outrageous, while also being five to nine minutes away from the downtown and the slopes.”
Although the home is now over 25 years old, Lavey notes that it’s in a pristine state, built to the “highest level of construction.”
Accessed via a scenic driveway from a secure gated entry, the picturesque property sits atop an escarpment overlooking Alpine views, and is the “realization of years of planning and vision.”
The interior boasts a top-of-the-line chef’s kitchen, a fitness center, a rec room, a den, an office suite, two fireplaces, multiple terraces, and outdoor space.
In addition to the main home, which is clad in bleached cedar timbers and native stone, there’s an equally impressive three-bedroom guest lodge, set amongst aspen groves.
Enveloped by mountains, the property includes extensive forested trails for exploring the natural surroundings, yet is only minutes to Telluride.
Lavey notes that he’s already had significant interest in the property. A mere two-hour flight from Los Angeles (by private jet), the property is just minutes away from the private airport in town, Lavey notes, another appealing factor for a buyer looking to drop $40 million on a vacation home.
Cruise, who knows how to entertain an audiences at the box office, also seems to have mastered the art of relaxation with this spread.
Known for performing his own stunts, the actor can also claim some action-packed real estate deals. In 2016, he sold the Beverly Hills compound he’d shared with Holmes for $40 million. He pocketed a hefty profit, having bought the posh place in 2007 for $30.5 million.
The megawatt star is known for his action-packed blockbusters, such as the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, “Top Gun,” and “Minority Report.” He’s currently filming Nos. 7 and 8 in the “Mission: Impossible” series. The long-awaited sequel “Top Gun: Maverick” is due out in July.
