Tom Cruise, who was previously living out of a luxe hotel room in London, is looking for a more permanent residence.

We’re told the “Mission Impossible” actor has been looking for a place in the upscale Kensington area, near the royal Kensington Palace.

“He’s shopping in the $10 million range,” says our source. “This will be a new place and act more as a primary residence.”

Virgin mogul Richard Branson, fashion designer Stella McCartney, Robbie Williams and “Mr. Bean” star Rowan Atkinson have all reportedly lived in the posh neighborhood.

The area is also home to the swanky street Kensington Palace Gardens, which has been dubbed “Billionaires Row.” The gated community offers strict security and plays home to billionaires Roman Abramovich and Len Blavatnik, plus steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal.

However, the homes there seem out of budget for what Cruise is seeking, with an average value of $35 million.

Buzz about Cruise being enamored by London is not a minority report. A source previously told In Touch Weekly that the “Rain Man” star had fallen in love with the city.

“Tom loves the rainy weather, the people, taking long walks in the city,” said the insider. “He’s never had a place to call home before, not really, but he’s finally found that in London.”

This summer the “Top Gun” star attended the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the British Grand Prix, and Wimbledon, where he looked positively chuffed at the sight of Kate Middleton.

He has been spotted dining out frequently, most recently with Salma Hayek and her billionaire husband, François-Henri Pinault.

A source told The Daily Mail this month that Cruise has “fallen in love with everything about the UK. His daughter lives here, he enjoys a good ‘cuppa’ and he loves the fact he can be himself. The biggest thing is he’s developed a proper circle of friends. He’s the happiest I’ve ever seen him.”

Cruise’s daughter with Nicole Kidman, Isabella, lives in nearby Croydon.

While filming “Mission Impossible” in 2020, Cruise reportedly lived in a $455,000 per month penthouse at the Corinthia Residences, which were previously owned by none other than The Queen.

During lockdown, he is said to have stayed in Scientology’s UK headquarters near Sussex.

He also reportedly has a place in a gated community in the tiny Biggin Hill. He previously owned a home in East Grinstead, but sold it in 2016.
