Just two months after he put it up for sale, Tom Cruise’s mansion in Telluride, Colorado, reportedly sold for the entire $39.5 million asking price, according to the listing agents.
The home was under contract in a week, according to listing agent Dan Dockray of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. Eric Lavey, a coworker who worked on the deal, said, “It really depended on who had their Gulfstream warming up on the tarmac to get out there first.”
The sale, according to Mr. Lavey, is another proof of the Colorado market’s phenomenal recent rise. He claimed that there was a really high demand for expansive, exclusive properties with on-site sporting amenities. Regarding the buyer’s identity, the agents refrained from saying.
A request for response was not immediately answered by Mr. Cruise’s spokeswoman.
The roughly 320-acre property is surrounded on three sides by a national forest and is located at the end of a mile-long driveway that is bordered by an aspen grove. In addition to a three-bedroom guest house, Mr. Cruise finished a about 10,000 square foot native stone and cedar home in 1994. The main house has a classic mountain design with stone fireplaces and wood paneled walls.
There are a ton of sporting facilities on the site, including a sizable sports court, a snowmobile and dirt bike track, and a huge system of ATV, hiking, and snowshoeing paths.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the 58-year-old “Top Gun” and “Mission: Impossible” star tried to sell the house seven years ago.
