Fancying having your very own private getaway in a secluded yet accessible picturesque spot in Colorado but finding it is like Mission Impossible to get your hands on such a property? Look no more! Tom Cruise is selling his Colorado home at 115 Francisco Way Telluride and it is up for grabs for $59 million.
How would you like to have your very own private retreat nestled amidst 298 acres of forested land which is linked by a gated private trail to thousands of acres of national forest? It is every introverted nature lover’s dream home for sure!
Cruise’s only reason for selling the estate is because he has not been using it much for the past few years. If you got the big bucks, surely the 298 acres estate and home designed by Cruise himself is worth every penny of the $59 million it is listed for.
Designed to Cater to Your Dreams
The beauty of the property is that although it is designed to be secluded and very private, it is also a great place for people who love entertaining. The main home is over 10,000 square foot and has its own gym, library, and rec room, plus features 4 bedrooms and 6 full bathrooms. The guest house is home to 3 full baths and 3 bedrooms in its 1,600 square foot of rustic mountain top real estate perfection.
But how about transporting your guests or whisking yourself away for a quick weekend retreat? That is not a problem either, as the estate is only 12 minutes away from the historic and scenic resort town of Telluride Colorado and less than 10 minutes away from the regional airport at Telluride. More so, the property has provisions to house your very own private jet.
Rumor has it that the property also has a bunker, constructed by the celebrity Church of Scientology member himself after the construction of the main home was wrapped up in 1994; however, there is no mention of such a bunker in any of the listings. Whether this is true or not, a bunker is certainly not out of the question should you be interested in having one once you own the estate. The hundreds of acres is the perfect place to hide your bunker aka secret lair!
On nearly 300 acres of land
How many people can boast of a home designed by Tom Cruise himself? Sotheby International Realty’s listing agent Bill Fandel confirms that the actor indeed hand-picked what makes the rustic-chic cedar and stone home so unique and warm. In fact, despite the home’s huge size, every room is designed to feel homey and intimate - a testament as to how much care Cruise placed in developing this estate.
Imagine every window framing a serene mountain scene. Every nook and cranny made of dove-tailed joinery, bleached cedar timbers and native stone. It is the perfect blend of rustic and luxury in one beautiful well-loved estate.

A million dollar view! Or $59 Million!
Don't forget about the 1,600 sq ft guest house of course!
Although extremely private, the home is still only a 15 minute drive to nearby Telluride
