His $30.5 million Beverly Hills mansion
Cruise raised the bar when he bought a mega mansion in Beverly Hills with his then-wife Katie Holmes for a whopping $30.5 million in 2007, per Love Property.

While the Minority Report star sold the mansion for $38 million nearly a decade later, less than the original $50 million asking price, his former estate is still one of Hollywood’s OTT stars.

Built in 1937 with a classic European facade, the mansion features seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms inside on over 10,000 square feet of land. It also has a large garden, a pool, tennis and basketball courts, as well as several guest houses and a large playground for children.

Cruise’s now-estranged daughter Suri also lived at the property from a young age with mother Holmes. The once-powerful couple spent many happy days at their Beverly Hills mansion as it sits on a secluded lot and offered plenty of privacy for the famous family.

The hot property was snapped up by American investor and billionaire Leon Black.

His exquisite West Sussex estate
If you’re a global superstar like Cruise, chances are you own real estate everywhere. Cruise bought an 11,000 square foot English country estate in East Grinstead in 2006 for over US$3.8 million (£3million).

Known as Rede Place, the property offers plenty of open space and lush gardens, as well as a swimming pool, spa and tennis court. With a total of eight bedrooms and five bathrooms, the property is divided into the main house and a separate guest pavilion, reports Love Property. The icing on the cake, however, is in the basement, as it includes an all-in-one entertainment area that includes a cinema, game room, and dance studio with a sprung floor.

The mega villa offers traditional meets modern design. It is believed that Cruise chose the English property due to its proximity to the UK headquarters of the Church of Scientology Saint Hill, of which the actor is a proud member.

According to Sussex Live, the actor sold the property to reality star Peter Andre for $6.2million (£5million) in 2016, but returned to the small town of Sussex during the Covid-19 lockdown and stayed at the church’s headquarters.
