Hollywood heavy weight Tom Cruise is reportedly selling his £4.95 million estate in England. The palatial and luxurious property in West Sussex is believed to be the house that the Tom and his third-wife Katie Holmes - from whom he split in 2012 - bought in 2006.

According to Variety, the 14.2 acre estate, six bedroom house is belongs to the Top Gun actor and was thought to have cost closer to the £3million mark when he first bought it.

The website reports that the country estate - located near the sleepy town of East Grinstead - boasts between five and six bedrooms in the main house alongside eight bathrooms. This includes features such as a 900 square-foot living room and a 33 foot-long master bedroom with access to a balcony.

Other notable points include manicured lawns, a tennis court and an outdoor swimming pool, the property also includes a ‘pavilion’ with two additional bedrooms, kitchen/living area and bathrooms. However there are also outbuildings on the estate, which include a Victorian era garage and a small summer house in the back garden. Mission Impossible star Tom is a staunch and widely publicised Scientologist, and perhaps part of the reason for the buy originally was to be close to East Grinstead - which is home to Saint Hill, the former home of the author L. Ron Hubbard who founded the Scientology religion. The actor is no stranger to playing the property market however, as in 2012 he sold-off his 2,200 square-foot apartment in Manhattan, while he is also thought to be angling to shift his Beverly HIlls estate.

Meanwhile Tom’s career is still going from strength-to-strength, with the actor currently filming the sequel to 2012’s Jack Reacher, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

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.
