Going Back to Cali, Bruce Willis Lists New York Country Estate for $13M
"Die Hard" star Bruce Willis has decided he wants to live in Los Angeles. He and his wife, Emma Heming, have put their New York country home on the market.
The four-home spread in Bedford Corners, NY, on two parcels with 22.6 acres, is available for $12.95 million.
The actor told the publication in a statement, "The only reasons we are giving it up is because we are so far from our California family, which is why we have decided to return to the West Coast and make our home there.”
The luxury estate with panoramic views of the Croton Reservoir was purchased in 2014 for $9 million, according to property records.

Located just 40 minutes from midtown Manhattan, the gated main house offers five bedrooms and almost 9,000 square feet. The footprint contains a finished 2,130-square-foot lower level with a gym, playroom, and wine cellar.
Entertainment areas include a large living room with a fireplace, formal dining room, and a cool observation tower with views of the surrounding area.
Outside you'll find a patio, vegetable garden, a saltwater pool and poolhouse, a tennis court (in need of resurfacing), and a two-car garage with storage.
Three other structures dot the property, which could be used as staff quarters, guesthouses, or offices. These include a 3,200-square-foot, three-bedroom updated antique farmhouse, a 1,000-square-foot, three-bedroom cottage, and a one-bedroom apartment over a three-car garage.
The 63-year-old hasn’t completely cut his East Coast ties. According to the Journal, the couple plans to keep the recently purchased Manhattan condo they reportedly snapped up last year for $8 million.
Located at the newly built residential tower, One West End, on the Upper West Side, the unit offers four bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and 3,000 square feet, with close proximity to Lincoln Center.
The star also finally sold his Idaho ranch after seven years on the market, for a drastically reduced $5.5 million—way down from an original $15 million ask.
Along with real estate wheeling and dealing, Willis can also be seen in the popular M. Night Shyamalan film “Glass,” and he's starring in the upcoming movie “Motherless Brooklyn.”
Ann Cutbill Lenane, Nancy Strong, and Stacey Oestreich of Douglas Elliman hold the listing.
