Richard Gere Has Listed His New York Estate For A Staggering Amount

For any real estate lover, the chance to get a peek inside luxurious celebrity homes is a can't-miss opportunity — and, apart from the odd photoshoot for publications like Architectural Digest, one of the only ways for the public to get that inside scoop is to check out the listing when a celebrity decides to put one of their properties on the market.

That's what actor Richard Gere just did — and you can snatch up a truly astounding property, provided your budget is around the $28 million mark, which is what he's asking for the 48-acre compound, as per New York Post.

Unlike many celebrities who seem to buy a palatial new estate every couple of years, Gere has laid down some serious roots in the massive property located in Pound Ridge, New York. He bought the slice of upstate New York land for $1.51 million back in 1986, and it has since been developed into a truly gorgeous piece of property.

As Dirt reports, the idyllic estate is only about an hour's drive from Manhattan, meaning anyone who snaps up the property could theoretically have the best of both country and city living. Although, we have to warn you, once you get a peek at the structures on the compound and the incredible natural beauty of the land itself, you may never want to head back into the city.

A little more about the property

Space isn't an issue in his stunning upstate compound — the main house is over 11,600 square feet with eight bedrooms and eleven bathrooms, according to New York Post, along with nine fireplaces to snuggle up close to during the cold New York winters. However, the main house isn't even the only structure on the compound. Gere seems to have taken full advantage of all the space, and the main house is joined by four other buildings, including a shed, office, and a six-stall barn ideal for equine enthusiasts.

While the indoor spaces are perfect for the chilly seasons, when the weather heats up, residents can take a plunge in the pool, stop by the stables to saddle up a horse and head out riding over the rolling hills, or even start up a game of soccer on the hidden soccer field. There's even a separate island and private lake for when you want those relaxing beach days with no paparazzi. And, for those who want to get in the rural spirit with a bit of gardening, there are vegetable gardens with plenty of room to expand your gardening ventures.

Gere himself has already purchased his next property, venturing over to another corner of New York state to reside in a 1930s-era Georgian mansion in North Salem. Fans will have to keep their eyes peeled to see who manages to buy the breathtaking property he's leaving behind.
