Tom Cruise has a new landlord: the Church of Scientology.
Cruise is reportedly moving into Saint Hill Manor, the former home of L. Ron Hubbard and right next door to the Church of Scientology’s UK headquarters, dubbed the Castle.
Both building’s are set within a gargantuan 100-acre compound in East Grinstead, Sussex.
The mock-Norman castle was built behind the main manor house in 1968 to provide a purpose-built training facility for Scientology students.
According to the Daily Mail, the actor wants to make the religion’s headquarters a major landmark, and is spearheading a massive overhaul at the fortress-like building.
The building currently houses dining areas, executive offices, auditing rooms, course rooms, a chapel and a guidance room.
Planning application documents seen by the Daily Mail reveal the extension will include a spa, gym and a high-end restaurant.
Sources told the Mail that the actor put his own East Grinstead mansion on the market after the Church’s leader, David Miscavige, granted him unlimited access to Hubbard’s former living space.
