    Bruce Willis just bought a stunning, picturesque home in Bedford, New York for $9 million!

    The actor and his wife, Emma Heming, were spotted looking at properties in the area, as first reported by the local Poughkeepsie Journal. Property records show that they closed on a new home on August 29, 2014.

    Located within driving distance to New York City, Bedford has become a veritable hotbed for celebrity buyers who want a country escape. Willis’ new neighbors include Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, who sold one home in the area and just bought another. Other familiar faces in the town include Martha Stewart, as well as Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, who have shunned the Hollywood life and made the tucked-away enclave their full-time home.

    Willis and his wife’s new country home is a beautiful and sophisticated shingle-style home set atop 14 acres of one of Bedford highest points, where they have breathtaking 180 degree western views across the Croton Reservoir to the Highlands of the Hudson.

    The residence is over 8,000 square feet of meticulously crafted interior living space of unsurpassed quality. Large, elegantly-scaled rooms all have huge windows and high ceilings.

    A country estate with a modern twist, the home has state-of-the-art video, sound, lighting and security systems, as well as a 1,500 bottle climate-controlled wine cellar.

    Outside, mature gardens and wonderful outdoor entertaining areas make it a true oasis. The property has a fabulous large swimming pool with heated cabana and outdoor shower. Beyond the gardens, the home has a synthetic surface tennis court and garages for four cars.

    When Willis was married to Demi Moore, he frequently escaped to Idaho, where he owned a $15 million-dollar lakefront ranch in Hailey, ID. In his new life with his new wife and two young daughters, Willis is spending his time on the East Coast. He and Heming recently sold their Beverly Hills mansion and doubled down on their live in New York, both in the city and now in this elegant country retreat!

      In a housing market that’s going up, up, up, actor Bruce Willis had a hard time selling his Beverly Hills mansion. Originally listed for $22 million in May 2013, Willis was forced to chop $2 million off the asking price of his sprawling, gated Beverly Hills hacienda in August 2013. With a $19,995,000 price tag, the gorgeous home continued to languish on the market.

      Until now.

      Property records show that Willis finally found a buyer at a much lower price. He sold the spread for $16.5 million on August 15, 2014.

      After so many years on the market, Willis must be thrilled that the deal is done, and he and wife Emma Hemming can fully enjoy East Coast life in their chic condo in New York City.

      Despite the lower sale price, Willis still made a profit over the $9 million he paid for the estate way back in June 2004, when he bought the pad from movie industry titan Alan Ladd Jr.

      The 1928 Spanish-style residence sits on about an acre acre of flat land in a prime section of lower Beverly Hillsand has 11 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms spread out over 10,379 square feet of interior space that also includes a state-of-the-art screening room, his & hers bathrooms and two staff rooms. Outside, a large pool, tennis courts and the surrounding areas are an entertainer’s paradise.

      Branden Williams of Hilton & Hyland represented both Willis and the buyer in the deal.

            Already the proud owner of several estates in Idaho, California, Montana and the Caribbean, 90’s action superstar (and real estate mogul) Bruce Willis has decided to put up the for sale sign on his 8,403 square foot, resort-style ranch in Idaho. First reported by the Wall Street Journal, “John McClane” has listed the home for a staggering $15 million. He first bought the home in 2003 and since made some pimp upgrades — from rebuilding the main house with 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms to adding a detached guest home and gym. What’s even more impressive is the extensive landscaping work that Willis did to the property’s already-lovely view of Flying Heart Lake. The home’s 20-acre lot now includes several man-made ponds and streams, two wells, a heated pool with water slides and waterfalls, as well as a rope swing. From the main road to the front door, the area surrounding the property is lined with paver stone and protected by a gated entry and security system.

            This beautiful home is just minutes away from local skiing, hiking, biking, live music and live theater venues in Sun Valley, ID. From the minute you walk in the door, the massive foyer entry leads you into an open and spacious sunken living room with pristine wood floors, accent ceiling lighting and two rock fireplaces. Moreover, the gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream featuring Traulsen and two Sub-Zero refrigerators, a Viking six-burner stove with dual ovens, two dishwashers, a large pantry, glass cabinets, under-counter lighting and island with an eating bar. Completing this luxury getaway is the master suite which boasts a gas fireplace, cozy seating area, two heated decks, built-in desk and bookshelves. Meanwhile, the enormous master bathroom is complete with jetted soaking tub, granite shower, dual sinks and a custom built closet with built-in dressers and shelves. All in all, this is a home fit for any “Die Hard” fan of luxury living in the woods.
