We'd 'Die Hard' to live in this Upper West Side wonderland.
We have a Sixth Sense about things, and it tells us that Bruce Willis would like to see some action on his sprawling Manhattan co-op. The star of classic flicks like Die Hard and Armageddon just listed his six-bed, four-and-a-half bath home on Manhattan’s pricey Upper West Side for a cool $17.75 million. He only bought the property two years ago, spending $16.995 million on classic New York co-op.
Bruce’s Central Park West home, which was originally built in 1913, measures a whopping 6000 square feet. That’s no joke in Manhattan, where square footage costs and arm and a leg! With 150 feet of Central Park frontage, the spectacular home is quite a sight to be seen. Step inside the entry foyer, which opens to a beautiful corner living room and elegant dining room, both of which have large picture windows looking out on the exquisite beauty of Manhattan and the park. An eat-in kitchen also boasts stunning views of the park, as well as a breakfast bar, custom cabinetry with metallic chrome accents, honed granite countertops, duel Sub-Zero refrigerators, and a six-burner Viking stove.
A welcoming library with custom bookshelves is the perfect spot to catch some peace and quiet. Continue down the sweeping staircase to see the bedrooms, which include a luxurious master suite with a master bath featuring a steam shower and separate soaking tub overlooking Central Park. One of the five extra bedrooms could easier be transitioned into a dressing room or home office. And with a full-time elevator operator and live-in resident manager, chances are whoever buys this beauty won’t have to lift a finger.
In typical mega-star form, Bruce has owned multiple other properties, as well. There’s the $22 million Beverly Hills mansion that he listed in 2013 and sold the following year after chopping $2 million off the asking price. Since 2004, he’s owned a $9 million home in the celeb-heavy town of Bedford, NY. He also has a vacation home in bucolic Hailey, Idaho that he’s owned since 2003. Currently on the market for $5.895 million, it looks like Bruce has been trying to make that sale since 2011, when it was listed for $15 million. Now that’s a brutal pay cut.
