We are sharing a secret look inside actor Richard Gere's stunning $30 million Hudson Valley home that's been described as "magical."

Richard Gere just listed his Westchester County home for $28 million. Gere has lived at the compound in Pound Ridge for over 20 years.

The home at 81 Lyndel Road in Pound Ridge, New York is listed by Muffin Dowdle of Ginnel Real Estate.

Dirt.com says Gere purchased the home during a 10 year period, describing the home as "hidden down a leafy country lane and enveloped in a beautifully maintained idyll, the almost fifty-acre estate lies about fifty miles and, on a good day, just an hour’s drive to Manhattan."

The home was built in 2000. It has over eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The compound is nearly 50 acres and 12,000 square feet.

"This magical country compound, expertly meshed into the landscape, comprises nearly 50 acres all buffered from the outside world by over 4300-acres of protected land – to create a peaceful and playful refuge with natural beauty at its core," Muffin Dowdle writes in the listing.

The estate includes a pool, 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.

"Each detail has been meticulously thought out, yet they unfold with ease. The estate's five structures, stables, and pool are plotted perfectly within the bucolic property, respecting their setting with an understated New England aesthetic, as if they have been there all along. Incredibly, this private country escape for peace and refuge is just 50 miles from Manhattan," Duffin adds.
