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.
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.
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 Hills and 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.
