Bruce Willis' NYC Bachelor Pad Sells Fast

bruce willisIt didn't take long for Bruce Willis' 3-bedroom, 3-bath New York City condo at Trump Place to go under contract. Given this top-floor unit of a 20-story building was listed in March for $3.995 million when the Die Hard star had paid $4.26 million for it in 2007, perhaps it seemed like a steal to the prospective buyer. (See photos.)

"It was on the market for five days and then went under contract," co-broker David Salvatore of Town Residential told AOL Real Estate in a phone interview on Friday. "It was faster than we thought possible." He says they showed it to one client who made an offer and the offer was accepted. "It couldn't have been more perfect."

As Salvatore told AOL Real Estate earlier this month, the price was a very strategic move for the star who purchased it before he married his wife Emma Heming. "We wanted it listed under $4 million, because this is a property Bruce does not want to be showing on the market. He wants to sell it quietly in a reasonable amount of time."
The unit's unique Brazilian-cherry covered floor plan, shared by only three other units at 220 Riverside Blvd, has 11-foot-ceilings and three corner exposures with views of the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge. There are a total of 17 oversize windows throughout the 2,318 square feet, according to the listing details.

The eat-in kitchen is finished with cherry cabinets and granite counter tops, and has stainless steel appliances. The en suite master bath with a marble topped counters on the double-bowl bathroom sink, has a separate shower and a jacuzzi tub.

Town Residential did not represent the buyer, but Salvatore says, "Everything is signed and we are waiting for the closing date."

In the meantime, the German-born, New Jersey-raised ex-husband of actress Demi Moore is also trying to sell his closed Idaho nightclub for $5.995 million, reported the Real Estalker. He bought the bar, called Mint, with Moore in the mid-1990s. Apparently when he was fed up with moonlighting in the resort town of Hailey, the bar shut its doors "unexpectedly" in 2008, reported the Idaho Mountain Express. Perhaps Willis had a Sixth Sense.
