Maybe we haven’t seen Bruce Willis in a new movie in a couple of years because he’s been too busy unloading and buying real estate in New York. First there was the $12 million, 22-acre buy in Bedford, then the $13 million sale of his El Dorado co-op, and now he’s purchased a $17 million six-bedroom duplex at 271 Central Park West, just a few blocks away from the El Dorado digs and not too far from the unit he owned before that at Trump Place on Riverside Drive. Clearly Willis likes the Upper West Side, and it looks to us like he’s having some fun climbing up the luxury-listing ladder.
The two-story, sohpisticated residence was offered for sale for the first time. It was originally two units, combined by Wesley Edens, part-owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, from whom Willis bought the home. It now measures 6,000 square feet and has 80-feet of frontage overlooking Central Park, high ceilings, and beautiful custom woodwork.
Off the living room is the formal dining room, which can comfortably seat twelve, that leads to the designer eat-in kitchen, complete with honed Uba Tuba granite countertops and breakfast bar, custom cabinetry, and high-end appliances.
The lower level holds five large bedrooms including the master suite, which features two walk-in closets, a dressing room with built-in vanity and a spa-like en-suite bathroom. There’s also a sixth room that can be used as another bedroom, a library with walls of built-in book shelves and a laundry room.
We had heard that Willis and his wife Emma Heming Willis wanted to move to a bigger apartment now that they have two young children, so it looks like a mission accomplished.
