Bruce Willis Sells His $17.75 Million New York City Duplex for the Full Asking Price
Bruce Willis just hit the real-estate jackpot. After picking up a gorgeous Upper West Side condominium by Lincoln Center for $7.9 million earlier this year, the Die Hard actor (who’ll be reprising his role in the upcoming sixth installment of the action-packed franchise) recently sold off his larger, mansion-size Central Park West duplex for the full asking price: $17.75 million.
The 6,000-square-foot space, which he and wife Emma Heming listed just this past January, features six bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, with plenty of inviting, family-friendly amenities, such as an eat-in kitchen, a den with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and entertaining spaces on the upper level.
The living room stretches an impressive 30 feet, and the dining room is a just-as-stately 20 feet, with an enviable view of the park. The upper floor contains one of the bedrooms, with a walk-in closet and spacious bathroom (ideal for guests or live-in domestic staff); the other four family bedrooms are located on the lower level and share two hallway bathrooms, with the master suite located in its own slightly secluded wing of the duplex.
The suite includes an entrance vestibule, a 25-foot-long bedroom with views of the park and a connected wardrobe-lined office or dressing room. Two dressing rooms and an impressive, tiled bathroom featuring a soaking tub and a separate shower round out the suite.
The entirety of the apartment is light and airy, with hardwood floors and cream-color walls. The 13-story building itself also has some historic markers, courtesy of the building’s 116-year-old age—wooden mullions on the windows and an elegant lobby with 24-hour concierge—as well as notably modern additions, including an outdoor half basketball court and bike room.
Previous tenants include the late comedian Robin Williams, Star Wars icon Mark Hamill, and multi-Oscar-winner Meryl Streep. Willis and Heming’s primary reason for leaving their luxurious duplex, which they purchased for $16.995 million three years ago, was to downsize. Their new Lincoln Center–adjacent condo is a still-impressive 3,055-square-feet, with four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms.
