Bruce Willis is packing up and moving back to the West Coast, leaving behind his massive 22-acre Westchester estate. The “Die Hard” actor’s property in Bedford Corners has hit the market for $12.95 million, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday. In 2014, Willis and wife Emma Heming paid $12 million for the estate, which includes a shingle-style home, antique house, and two renovated guest cottages. As 6sqft reported last January, Willis sold his co-op at 271 Central Park West for $17.75 million after buying it for around the same price in 2015.
The A-lister and his family decided to move from New York to be closer to their family in California. “Our youngest daughter Mabel said last week that she wishes we could put lots of balloons on our house, like they did in the movie ‘Up,’ and send it to the West Coast,” Willis told the WSJ in a statement. “I agree, that would be perfect.”
Surrounded by forest, the estate, which spreads across two tax lots, also boasts panoramic views of the Croton Reservoir and total tranquility.
The main home measures nearly 9,000 square feet and includes five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and an additional finished lower level. Perfect for a family, the home features a large playroom and screening room.
Built in 2009, the home mixes modern and traditional design quite nicely, from its beamed and vaulted ceilings to the oversized windows. Perhaps the most peaceful, a turret-style lookout sits atop the main house, basking in natural sunlight.
This property also comes with a saltwater pool and pool house, a tennis court, and a two-car garage, in case you possibly needed any additional storage. And the Willis family has even maintained their own vegetable garden at the property.
On the second lot, there are three smaller homes accessed by a private driveway, including a three-bedroom antique farmhouse that measures just over 3,100 square feet. The other cottages include a three-bedroom 1,000-square-foot home and a one-bedroom 660-square-foot space with a three-car garage.
The property is located just 40 miles from Manhattan.
