Mission Impossible mega star Tom Cruise equipped his luxe alpine escape in Telluride, Colorado with all the bells and whistles. The 11,512-square-foot living space was built in 1994, and includes the 10,000-square-foot, four-bedroom main house and a three-bedroom guest house. Tom has owned the mountain retreat since the ’90s and sold the property for $39.4 million last spring. With ski season upon, we thought it was worth a peek. Scroll down!
Nestled deep within rolling meadows and mature forest, the Telluride home holds a lot of history for Tom, according to
Dirt.com. It is where he enjoyed time with his children and much of his marriage to actress Katie Holmes. It was also the location of his last major interview with Oprah, who was so taken with his ranch and its views that she bought her own home nearby in 2016.
The grounds are beautiful in all seasons. Outside is a sports court for tennis, basketball or ice hockey and a private trail system. The property’s 298 acres are threaded with hiking and riding trails, and tracks for dirt bikes and snowmobiles — plus there’s a private gate leading to the Uncompahgre National Forest.
The living room features beamed ceilings with bleached cedar timbers, an oversized fieldstone fireplace and charming French windows to frame dramatic views of the tall peaks outside.
In this casual seating area, the walls are clad in rustic cedar timbers assembled by dovetail joinery; and the angular fireplace built from local stone echoes the mountains outside.
The dining room continues the Western theme, with a metal cowboy chandelier and art. The trestle table and farmhouse wood chairs drive home the casual, family friendly vibe.
The chalet kitchen features luxury appliances — including three refrigerators. A hanging wrought iron pot rack gives the space a personal feel.
This cozy den has plenty of rustic log shelving. The knotty wood walls and timbers give this space an intimate feel, perfect for après ski.
The games room also embraces a Western spirit, with Navajo-style rugs laid causally on the wood plank floors and a cowboy-theme parchment shade.
This picturesque spot outfitted with a timber bench is an ideal perch to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate as the sun climbs over the peaks in the morning.
