In a housing market that’s going up, up, up, actor Bruce Willis is having a hard time selling his Beverly Hills mansion. Originally listed for $22 million in May 2013, Willis just chopped $2 million off the asking price of his sprawling, gated Beverly Hills hacienda.

Willis slashed the price of the home in hopes that a lower price can get the deal done and he and wife Emma Hemming can fully enjoy East Coast life in their chic condo in New York City.

Property records we peeped show that Willis paid $9 million 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 is the listing agent.
