Bruce Willis' House: The Actor's Rough Year Continues With a Mansion That Just Won't Sell

By on August 30, 2013 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

It's odd, but Bruce Willis can't seem to catch a break at the moment.  The actor made a name for himself co-starring on the hit show, "Moonlighting" in the mid to late 80s.  He went on to a successful film career, largely in action projects.  Though he hit a rough patch in the early 90s, he has, for the most part, achieved success after success.  Over the years, he's appeared in such films as the "Die Hard" franchise, "Pulp Fiction", "Twelve Monkeys", "The Fifth Element", "Armageddon", "The Sixth Sense", "The Whole Nine Yards", "Unbreakable", "Hart's War", "Sin City", "Alpha Dog", "16 Blocks", "Grindhouse", "Surrogates", "The Expendables", "Red", "Moonrise Kingdom", "The Expendables 2", "Looper", "G.I. Joe: Retaliation", and "Red 2".  Those are not his only projects.  He's also appeared on a range of television shows, including "Friends" and "That '70s Show", as well as a dozen other film projects.  However, the 2012 – 2013 movie season has not been quite as kind to Mr. Willis as previous years.  "A Good Day to Die Hard", the latest installment in the "Die Hard" universe, was disliked by both critics and fans.  It came and went fairly quickly.  "Red 2", while better reviewed, didn't bring in the audience the studio anticipated at all.  It came and went with surprisingly little fanfare.  "The Expendables 2" was supposed to be a fun project with all of his action movie buddies.  Unfortunately, he got into a war of egos with Sylvester Stallone, and that was all she wrote.  To top it off, he listed his Beverly Hills mansion for $22 million in May, and now he's started chopping the price in an effort to entice buyers.

Bruce Willis' house in Beverly Hills is a 10,379 square foot hacienda-style mansion, with eleven bedrooms and eleven bathrooms.  He purchased the house in 2004, but is now planning to spend more time on the East Coast.  In addition to the large number of bedrooms and bathrooms, Bruce Willis' house features high ceilings, lots of windows, a wrap-around terrace, staff rooms, and a screening room.  There is also a large pool and a tennis court on the ample grounds surrounding the home.  Bruce Willis' house started out costing $22 million, but just three months after it hit the market, that number has already been reduced by $2 million dollars.  Word on the street is that he wants a quick sale.  It may be worth waiting to see just how much further he's willing to lower the price.
