After less than three years of ownership, Bruce Willis is ready to part ways with his Central Park West duplex.
Willis and his wife, Emma, paid just under $17 million for the co-op at 271 Central Park West in March 2015. Alas, the couple isn’t spending as much time in the six-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom abode as they planned, as Douglas Elliman broker Ann Cutbill Lenane told the Wall Street Journal. The couple has listed the Upper West Side home for $17.75 million.
The apartment features 150-feet of Central Park frontage, as well as a corner living room and separate dining room, both with large picture windows.
There’s a paneled entry foyer, as well as a library with custom bookshelves, per the listing held by Lenane, which adds the unit is “perfect for entertaining.” The eat-in kitchen has a breakfast bar, with custom cabinetry and granite countertops.
The master suite contains a space that could be used as a dressing room or a closet, plus a bathroom with a steam shower and a separate soaking tub.
The Willises also own an 8,000-square-foot home in Bedford Hills, for which they paid $9 million in 2014. Surely Willis will miss the New York City area—the actor is a longtime Upper West Side denizen, and previously owned an apartment at 220 Riverside Boulevard and one in the Eldorado, as well as a triplex penthouse he bought in 1990 with his then-wife, Demi Moore.
Indeed, Willis said in a statement that he will “always be an Upper West Side guy. I’ve been living up here on and off since the ‘70s.”
