Bruce Willis Ready to Unload $13 Million NYC Apartment
By Melissa Allison
For a while, Bruce Willis was tripling down on homes in New York. He bought two properties in Westchester County this year after spending $ 8.85 million in early 2013 for a Central Park pad that belonged to U2 bassist Adam Clayton.
Now the “Die Hard” actor and his wife, Emma Heming, want to unload the renovated Manhattan apartment for nearly $ 13 million.
Located in the Emery Roth-designed Eldorado building — whose celebrity residents have included Alec Baldwin, Faye Dunaway, the musician Moby and Garrison Keillor — the home has views of Central Park from its living and dining rooms and from the master suite.
The three-bedroom, 3.5-bath home includes a steam shower and a large kitchen made from two former housekeepers’ rooms.
“They just spent two years renovating it; they took it back to the studs,” said Ann Cutbill Lenane, the Douglas Elliman broker who has the listing.
Willis and Heming wanted a bigger space after having their second child this year, the broker said.
Lest it seem the couple has a sixth sense for real estate, they recently slashed prices on two other homes: A sprawling Beverly Hills mansion that was initially listed for $ 22 million finally sold for $ 16.5 million, and an Idaho home first listed at $ 15 million in 2011 is now on the market for $ 7.05 million.
