Hopefully, Tom Cruise will have more luck offloading his recently-marked down multi-million dollar property than Michael Jordan has.
The actor is attempting to sell his 320-acre ranch in Telluride, Colorado for $39.5 million—a steal compared to the $59 million he previously listed it for in 2014, according to Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty. The gated property has a mile-long driveway leading up to the 10,000-square-foot, four-bedroom main house and 1,512-square-foot, three-bedroom guest house that sits atop an aspen grove-covered escarpment with sweeping views of the mountainous landscape. The cabin Cruise helped design is covered in bleached cedar timber and native stone with beamed ceilings and large glass walls to give uninterrupted views of the surrounding nature. The main home features a large eat-in kitchen, living room, oversized dining room, gym, recreation room, and library. The property’s outdoor amenities are as luxe as its interiors, with a sports court that can be used for tennis, basketball, or ice hockey, a private trail system that accesses the neighboring 14,000-foot-high mountains, a private gate into the Uncompahgre National Forest, and miles of private hiking and riding trails for dirt bikes and snowmobiles.
But Cruise might need to enlist some of his celebrity pals to help take the property off his hands as the asking price is far above the area’s median listing price of $1.9 million, according to Realtor.com. However, this home isn’t just a piece of luxury real estate, it also comes with a whole lot of Hollywood history. According to Top Ten Real Estate Deals, the ranch is where the actor spent much of his marriage to Katie Holmes and enjoyed time with his children.
It’s also the location of his last major interview with Oprah, a follow-up to their memorable 2005 talk during which Cruise jumped up and down on her couch while proclaiming his love for Holmes. Cruise also owns homes in Beverly Hills and Clearwater, Florida—the headquarters of The Church of Scientology.
