Richard Gere has made a name for himself in Hollywood. From Pretty Woman to Hachi: A Dog’s Tale, the actor has transformed his name into a brand to be reckoned with, a brand that has reached its peak when it comes to reputation. This fact is clear from his $130 million net worth. And it is this man, who has finally found a place worth calling home. The actor, who lives along with his third wife Alejandra Silva, and their two young sons have moved into a new house. And calling the property luxurious would just be the tip of the iceberg.
Richard Gere buys new estate worth $10 million
Richard Gere has purchased Northshire, a 35-acre estate in one of New York City’s most posh suburbs. The estate is over 35 acres and cost him a whopping $10 million. Safe to say that it is totally worth it. The house has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms and is far from all the distractions of the city. It is well known how much Gere values his privacy. He registered the mansion to a trust business in Los Angeles, hence maintaining its privacy.
The couple’s new home has a lot to boast of. The living space they have is an astonishing 9,000 square feet. In a bid to increase the land under their control, they also bought an adjacent property for nearly $700,000. This brought the total amount of land they hold to 35 acres. The couple can also boast of having esteemed neighbors to keep them company, which includes the likes of David Letterman and Jenn Gates.
Not a stranger when it comes to housing
But Richard Gere has a good idea of how other suburbs in New York are. Gere owned a compound at the Hamptons, but he sold it recently for a whopping $33.75 million. And just before shifting to Northshire, he used to live in the Pound Ridge estate in Westchester County. The property, which is currently on the market for $28 million, was built by Gere over the course of ten years. The house spans 4,300 acres of land and consists of 5 separate homes divided over the estate, with the main home being three stories and 19-rooms big. The property holds special significance for him. This was where he married Alejandra Silva in 2018. This was also where he welcomed his two youngest sons with his third wife. And this was also the home where he moved in with his second wife, Carey Lowell.

Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva wanted a new start
It was probably because the married couple sought to start in a new place that they decided to switch to a home in New Salem. The suburbs there are rather private and have protected the famous celebrities residing there from prying eyes. The couple shifted to their new home after stringing Buddhist prayer flags over the drive to the property. And we hope they will enjoy their stay there.
