Bruce Willis Lists His Idaho Ski Retreat


Actor Bruce Willis is a fixture on the Sun Valley Idaho real estate scene, owning multiple properties in the ski resort area. He's about to own one less though, having just put his 20-acre, lakefront ranch on the market for $15 million.

Willis' agent, Janine Bear with Sun Valley Sotheby's International Realty, told The Wall Street Journal that Willis is selling because he just isn't spending enough time there. He bought and rebuilt the 8,400-square-foot main house in 2003. The property in Hailey includes a detached guesthouse and Willis added a gym. There is also a heated pool with water slides, a waterfall and a rope swing, as well as several man-made ponds on the grounds.

Willis (pictured at left) starred in the "Die Hard" franchise and in the movie, "The Sixth Sense." A much-in-demand actor, he has multiple films slated for release in the next 12 months. Willis has also listed for sale his Sun Valley bar and restaurant complex called The Mint, with a current price tag of $4.5 million, down from about $6 million in August 2010.

Willis' ex-wife Demi Moore and her soon-to-be-next-ex-husband, Ashton Kutcher, reportedly spent some time together at Willis' other vacation home in the Turks and Caicos trying to work out their marital issues. Maybe they should have tried the ski place instead.
