Tom Cruise is selling his mansion in the Hollywood Hills for a cool $13 million, though it is unlikely it comes with any dirty Scientology secrets even at that price tag.

The 2.5 acre property, confirmed by the L.A. Times to be owned by Cruise, is just off Mulholland Drive and up the street from John Lautner's famed Chemosphere. Features include a panoramic view of the city, 3 bedrooms, an Italian farmhouse-style kitchen, oak floors, and a pool with a waterfall. The listing also mentions that the property has an additional guest house that has 4 bedrooms of its own, and a separate structure that can be used as a wine cellar. So that's where all the Mission: Impossible money went.

Naturally rumors have always floated around that such a highfalutin property owned by the world's most famous Scientologist must mean it also doubles as a retreat for high-level members of the Church, but Variety says they haven't seen any evidence of that. A previous owner was Frank Zappa's former road manager, Marty Perellis, who used to share the property with 350 rescued animals, including llamas.
