Tom Cruise is selling his Colorado home: he wants an astronomical 870 million crowns for this wooden luxury
Actor Tom Cruise's must have grown tired of Colorado. He decided to sell his huge wooden house that can now be yours. But beware, just walking from one end to the other takes quite some time. The plot nestled amidst mountains and forests has an area of an incredible 320 acres (1,294,995 square meters). The actor launched the house on the market for less than 900 million crowns. He's selling the mansion thirty years after he began building it.
Way up high
The 10,000-square-foot main house was built at a high altitude, allowing the visitors to look down at landing planes in Tellurid, Colorado. This is confirmed by the driveway leading to the house, which is 1 kilometre and 600 meters long. The house boasts 7 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, as well as a guest house with three bedrooms.
Wood and stone
The house from 1994 is designed in a classic mountain style with wooden beams on the ceilings, panelled wooden walls and stone fireplaces. Wood and stone are the elements that dominate the whole house. Most rooms are equipped with leather furniture, which only underlines the breathtaking wooden luxury.
Don't expect any colour experiments here, everything is designed in natural tones.
An island, not an islet
The kitchen looks big enough to feed four families. They'd fit easily! The huge kitchen island in the middle of the room offers a large cooking space. The owners of the house have two stoves and three large refrigerators at their disposal. Everyone would like to get snowed in in such a "cottage".
Each chalet needs its own games room
And you'll definitely find one here! The Hollywood actor really thought of everything and didn't underestimate the importance of entertainment. The dominant feature of the spacious games room is a large pool table in the middle. You can also play football, darts or chess here.
And if you get tired of the games, there is a fitness centre in the next room, where you can test your limits!
What to do first?
Colorado has a long list of advantages, but the biggest one are the endless sports options. The wooden farmhouse is surrounded by majestic mountains and boasts an extensive net of wooded trails located just one kilometre from the house. It would be a sin not to try skiing and golf at the heart of these two sports. Telluride Sports Center is just a few minutes away by car.
The spacious plot of land also includes a large sports field, a track for snowmobiles or off-road vehicles. The house has its own sauna, which offers a perfect end to a long day filled with sports activities.
Telluride - the best place to spend the pandemic
In recent months, the market in has been extremely active this area. Mainly because of the pandemic, people poured in from big cities all over the country. During the pandemic, they realized that they no longer wanted to be trapped in the middle of a large town. For example, presenter Oprah Winfrey and fashion designer Ralph Lauren now live in this area.
Tom experienced the most beautiful period of life here
Tom Cruise has experienced a lot in this mansion over the thirty years. In 2008, for example, he recorded an interview with Oprah in his house, and a year and a half before that, he'd shared the first photo of his daughter Suri alongside his then-fiancée Katie Holmes.
And he has a lot of happy memories of the time spent here with his ex-wife and their children. In an interview with Vanity Fair, he talked about his days on the ranch, filled with riding on the motocross track, jumping on the trampoline, playing golf or sitting by an outdoor fireplace.
