Just like his beloved character in Die Hard, and though he might work in both NYC and LA, actor Bruce Willis says he will “always be an Upper West Side guy” — even if he did just sell his most recent Central Park West home.
Just one week after listing his prewar coop at 271 Central Park West for $17.75 million, Bruce Willis and wife Emma already have a buyer for their posh pad — which they purchased back in 2015 from Milwaukee Bucks owner Wesley Edens, who combined the duplex into a single 6,000 square foot apartment, according to Curbed.
A broker for the family told the Wall Street Journal that the couple is just not spending enough time in the six bedroom, four and a half bathroom NYC apartment to justify keeping it. The bright, modern, and totally updated luxury pied a terre in a 1913 building features 150 feet of frontage on Central Park plus views from nearly every room.
Spread out between two floors, the grand apartment features six bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms — all with beautiful millwork, built-ins, and parquet wood floors — plus luxury amenities like steam showers in the en-suite bathrooms and Sub-Zero and Viking appliances in the custom kitchen.
6sqft projects that the couple — who have two young daughters together, five year old Mabel Ray and three year old Evelyn Penn, three — will now be spending more time at the 22-acre Bedford Hills estate upstate that they bought for $12 million back in 2014, which we shared last year after an Elle Decor cover feature on the family hit newsstands in October. The house, on a massive estate overlooking the Croton Reservoir, has five bedrooms, six baths, a climate-controlled wine cellar, mature gardens, a swimming pool and heated cabana, and “at least three other buildings.”
Willis also has three grown daughters — Rumer (29), Scout (26), and Tallulah (23) — with ex-wife Demi Moore.
