Looks like Telluride isn't for Tom. The actor, who states he hasn't used the residence much over the years, has opted to list his beautiful Colorado mountain home for a whopping $59 million.

It seems that Maverick isn't quite cut out to be a mountain man. Former Top Gun star Tom Cruise has opted to list his Telluride, Colorado, mansion for lack of use. The Scientology advocate is said to have purchased the home with plans to build a bunker to protect his family against alien invasion. However, there is no word as to if the bunker ever came to fruition. Not included in the real estate listing, it's safe to assume that Tom may have ditched the idea when he and Katie got together. Formerly living in New York City together, Holmes and Suri now reside in Calabasas with the Kardashian crew.

Wow, being married to Tom Cruise sounds awful, and Katie Holmes confirms it

An astonishing piece of real estate, the secluded cabin is located only 12 minutes from historic and beautiful downtown Telluride. Surrounded by gorgeous Colorado mountains, forests, sunrises and sunsets, the cabin is built with bleached cedar timbers, dovetail joinery and native stone. Built with the finest craftsmanship, it's a wonder that the actor would want to part with such a magnificent property. The perfect winter getaway in one of the nation's most beloved ski towns, it seems Tom prefers the big city life compared to the serenity of wide-open spaces. You know, we never did quite see our Maverick as a mountain man anyway... Can you imagine him in a full-grown beard and flannel?

Yeah, me either.
