FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – Hollywood’s reigning king of couch-jumping is on the move. The word on the multimultimillion-dollar real estate street is that the soon-to-be-divorced Tom Cruise is looking for a private getaway where daughter Suri can play in peace, beyond the prying lenses of the paparazzi.
The Daily News reported Friday that the mega-star has enlisted the help of agents in Westchester County, N.Y., and Fairfield County.
With money not likely to be an issue, and with plenty of vacant estates on the market, speculating on where the action-adventure dad and his fashionista daughter Suri will land is irresistible.
Will they take over the former Mel Gibson estate in Greenwich, Conn., where daddy can teach Suri to play chess on a life-size chessboard?
Or will he opt for the tony waterfront elegance of this $26 million Darien gem, where Suri could park her own boat?
Bedford, N.Y., has plenty of available estates starting at $13 million and up, including this wooded compound priced at an even $30 million.
One thing is for sure: Subtlety has never been Mr. Cruise’s forte, so there is sure to be more news on his impending move to suburbia coming soon.
