In 1992, around the time he was starring in "A Few Good Men," Cruise purchased his first piece of land to create his estate in Telluride. Come 1994, when Cruise was starring in "Interview with the Vampire," the main 10,000-square-foot main residence was completed by Telluride-based Fortenberry Construction.

In total, Cruise purchased five plots of land through 2002 to complete his dream escape at 115 Francisco Way, which is bordered by a national forest on three sides and offers views of planes landing at the nearby airport.
