Bruce Willis and his wife, actress Emma Heming Willis, listed their Central Park West-fronting duplex for $17.75 million in January, and as of today, the property has officially sold. The New York Post reports that the property hit city records today, with the final sale price being exactly the same as the listing price: $17.75 million. The buyer is financier Jeffrey Alan Keswin.
The Willises purchased the apartment at 271 Central Park West for $16.995 million in 2015 from Milwaukee Bucks owner Wesley Edens and his wife Lynn Edens. Unlike the San Remo penthouse that Bruce Willis once shared with ex-wife Demi Moore, the 271 Central Park West duplex is decidedly staid.
The broker for the Willises told the Wall Street Journal that the couple was not spending enough time in the six-bedroom, four and a half bathroom Upper West Side apartment to justify keeping it. “It’s time to scale back,” Ann Cutbill Lenane of Douglas Elliman said.
The WSJ reports that the roughly 6,000-square-foot apartment was originally configured as two apartments that were combined by Edens. The apartment comes with a combined 150 feet of Central Park frontage.
Willis has also owned Upper West Side homes in the El Dorado and Trump Place. In a statement to the WSJ, Willis said that he will “always be an Upper West Side guy. I’ve been living up here on and off since the ’70s.” The Willises also own a house in Westchester County that they purchased for $9 million in 2014.
