Bruce Willis listed his Turks and Caicos retreat this month, plunking the idyllic property onto the luxury real estate market with an asking price of $33 million. ‘The Residence,’ as it is called, is a custom-built private estate on Parrot Cay, a resort island in the archipelago.
What does $33 million buy you on Parrot Cay? Most importantly, perhaps, over seven acres of land, and over a thousand feet of private beachfront.
And houses totaling 18,000 square feet might be worth mentioning; plenty of breathing room inside to pair with the privacy buffer of the blinding, sun-dappled landscape outside. Eleven bedrooms and fourteen baths are scattered throughout the interior living space, which is divided among three residences.
Willis had the homes custom-built in the early 2000s, so stylistically they’re of a piece, and present a cohesive feel that gives the whole property a heady escapist quality. The interior square footage of the homes measures 13,500, with an additional 4,500 under roof. There are some 17,000 square feet of outdoor deck space.
The interiors are warm and uncluttered by ornament, offering no distractions from the singular beauty and simplicity of the setting. The main house was renovated last year, and the layout changed a bit: the upper level is now dedicated to the master suite. A home theater was also added during the revision.
The meandering acreage includes lawns, a children’s play area with a custom-designed ship, tropical fruit trees, and a yoga pavilion.
Willis’ latest work is the blockbuster Glass. The film also stars James McAvoy and Samuel L. Jackson. It has grossed $247 million worldwide against a budget of $20 million.
