Tom Cruise is off the market – i.e. his house

Tom Cruise’s custom-designed 320-acre mountain abode in Telluride, Colorado was sold at its asking price of US$39.5 million (about RM163 million) after about two months of listing by property agency, LIV Sotheby’s International Realty.

The American actor, who is also one of the highest-paid actors in the world, also owns homes in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and Clearwater, Florida.

A popular skiing and hiking destination, the historic Telluride town is nestled in a canyon surrounded by 13,000-ft and 14,000-ft peaks. As a former mining town, it features colourful Victorian-era homes, clapboard storefronts and other historic buildings.

Completed in 1994, the 11,512 sq ft home offers sweeping vistas of the Aspen forests and snow-capped mountains during winter. Blending in with its wooded surroundings, the home is clad in rustic cedar wood and stone with beamed ceilings and many large windows to take advantage of the views.

The 10,000 sq ft main house comprises four bedrooms, a gym, recreation room, library and more while there is also a detached guest house with an additional three bedrooms. Combined, there are seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Additionally, the home comes with equipment for recreational activities such as a large sports court, hiking trails, snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles.

Notably, the Telluride home was the location of the Top Gun actor’s last major interview with Oprah Winfrey, in a follow-up to the infamous couch-jumping episode in 2005. Oprah was so mesmerised by the home and its scenic views that she bought a property nearby.

Other celebrities who also find Telluride to be a great getaway include TV star Jerry Seinfeld and designer Ralph Lauren.
