Bruce Willis Mansion Sold!
So far, almost everything action actor Bruce Willis touches turns to gold, with the exception of this one piece of real estate. Having been listed for well over a year in a market with little inventory, he likely feels relieved that he finally has a buyer, even if it’s selling for $5.5 million less than the original ask. Willis bought the home in 2004 for $9 million, then set about adding major upgrades and value.
It’s an automatic response to hear the name Bruce Willis and think Die Hard and its many power packed sequels, but out of more than sixty films, TV, record albums and guest appearances, one still can’t forget the electricity between he and Cybill Shepherd in the five-year run of Moonlighting, the TV sitcom that put Willis on the road to his huge success. Winner of two Emmys and a Golden Globe, his films have brought in more than $3 billion in American box office sales, making him the ninth highest grossing actor. Also an astute businessman, he was co-founder of Planet Hollywood with partners Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone and owns small businesses in Idaho and a collection of prime real estate both in and outside the United States.
Located on an enviable acre of level land, the 10,379-square-foot, 1928 Spanish-style mansion consists of 11 bedrooms, 11 baths, state-of-the-art screening room, large interior courtyard, his-and-hers bathrooms in the master suite, two staff rooms and sweeping open areas for entertaining. Lushly landscaped grounds are walled and gated with a tennis court and large pool.
Bruce Willis’ 1928 Beverly Hills estate originally listed at $22 million in May, 2013, then dropped to $19.995 million with another drop to $18 million, sold for $16.5 million.
