Tom Cruise puts 4.95m pound UK property up for sale

The actor sold his apartment in Manhattan's East Village for more than Tom Cruise is selling his West Sussex mansion close to the Church of Scientology's British headquarters £2 million three years ago.

It's said Tom and Katie Holmes bought the property in 2006 for considerably less, but now it seems the Hollywood star is ready to sell the 14.2-acre estate.

Estate agent Savills describes the £4.95million home as "most desirable" and "ideal for commuters and those who enjoy entertaining". Guests can be accommodated in separate lodgings on the estate.

The mansion boasts six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a 900 square foot living room, and a 33 foot long master bedroom with access to a balcony.

The airy entrance hall incorporates a parquet wood floor. It is now for sale at $10 million. His Rocky Mountain compound in Telluride, Colorado, has also been on the market for a little over a year.

Meanwhile, Tom's career is still going from strength-to-strength, with the actor now filming the sequel to 2012's Jack Reacher, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The director of the first Jack Reacher movie, Christopher McQuarrie, is a producer.

Due out in 2016, the film also stars How I Met Your Mother's Cobie Smulders, and sees Tom reprise the role of the enigmatic former Army MP with a taste for justice. While the marriage didn't have a happy ending, the 11,331-square-foot house is happily poised to be a money-making investment since Tom purchased it for around $4.75 million, millions below its current listing price.
