Does anyone have a cool, $28M laying around?  If so, then this secluded country paradise just 90 minutes south of Albany may pique your interest.

Currently, it belongs to Richard Gere and has been listed on the real estate market since January.

I'll be honest, of all the celebrities who own (or owned) homes in and around Upstate NY, I had no idea that the "Pretty Woman" star was one of them, but there's a pretty good reason why.

This incredible piece of property is pretty much secluded - sits on nearly 50-acres and is surrounded by 4300-acres of protected land - but that's not all!

According to, the magical country compound features "a private lake with a sandy beach and island to row out to; rolling hills for horseback riding; mature weeping willows become playhouses and forts; a hidden soccer field; and mature plantings that reveal themselves throughout the seasons."

According to sources, Gere purchased the land in 1986 for $1.5M and built the sprawling estate in 2000 at 81 Lyndel Road in Pound Ridge, NY.
