Actor Bruce Willis picked up a property this month, dropping almost ten million in the process. The house in Los Angeles is new, and it’s fairly large; it dates to 2018, and it extends to almost 13,500 square feet. The Hollywood megastar’s latest purchase may be an investment.
The home’s exterior architecture riffs on traditional, with a symmetrical façade that’s staid and understated.
Inside, the home isn’t so understated. Many of the familiar contemporary design elements are here, with natural-toned, matte-finished hardwood floors, an intoxicating sense of space, and an overwrought foyer chandelier. The family room features an accent wall with a midcentury-inspired fireplace, and the kitchen features a truly old-fashioned collection of developer-built tropes: brass, marble, and a glossy Euro-meets-cottagey sensibility.
The home’s dizzying array of amenities is its context: this is a home that satisfies as many real or imagined needs as possible, working in a Pilates room, a screening room, wine storage, an indoor lap pool, steam room, sauna, and an elevator. The master suite is expansive, with a sitting area, a fireplace, and a very large, marble-clad bath.
The home’s exterior living areas are as generously proportioned. A second-floor deck is accessible via bedrooms, and a pool, outdoor bar, covered dining/lounge area, and a pool and spa with a pair of cabanas.
Never lacking for work, Willis features prominently in several of this year’s silver-screen releases, including Shyamalan’s newest, ‘Glass’; the film is in theaters now.
