Shortly after selling his Idaho ski compound, actor Bruce Willis is listing another luxury property: a 12-bedroom, 13,000-square-foot compound in Westchester County, NY, a posh area that’s home to such luminaries as Martha Stewart, Richard Gere, and Bill and Hillary Clinton. With an asking price of $12.95 million, the Willis estate offers plenty of room to roam, along with such celeb-friendly features as a saltwater pool, tennis court, and more.
Bruce Willis’ Westchester Estate
Encapsulating four structures on more than 22 acres, the property boasts 12 bedrooms, nine bathrooms (and three half-baths). In addition to the 8,958-square-foot main house, there’s also a 3,166-square-foot antique farmhouse, a smaller 1,007 square-foot house and a cozy one-bedroom, 660-square-foot apartment that sits atop a three-car garage.
The Main House
“The gated main property is beautifully landscaped and includes the sophisticated, 5+bedroom, 8,958-square-foot main house,” notes the listing, “including the finished 2,130-square-foot lower level, patio, vegetable garden, saltwater pool,” and more. Boasting a gabled roof, shingled exterior, white wood detailing and turreted tower, the home evokes a classic-yet-modern feel.
Deep in the Country
Despite the property’s close proximity to NYC, the house is deeply entrenched in the woods, surrounded by nature on all sides.
After 11 years on the market, Bruce Willis recently sold his opulent Idaho ski chalet.

The interior of the home is sophisticated yet rustic, with exposed wood beams and wide-plank wood flooring contrasting with the white detailing. A winding carpeted staircase in the entry foyer leads to the second level.
Wall of Windows
Multiple sets of French doors in the spacious living room create a wall of windows to maximize the rustic view.
The living room is large and open, with plenty of areas for Willis, wife Emma Hemming and their children to gather as a family.
