It’s a good day to buy hard.
Bruce Willis, who plays the formidable John McClane in the “Die Hard” movies, has purchased a Central Park West apartment for $8 million, reports the New York Post.
The actor snagged a deal on the prewar place, which was listed by U2 bassist Adam Clayton in October for $8.695 million. The apartment is in the “famed” El Dorado building, which has hosted a number of celebs over the years, including U2 frontman Bono and actor Alec Baldwin.
Built in 1930, Willis’ new home faces Central Park, with views from three of the rooms, including the generous master suite. Described as an “art deco gem,” the apartment was originally two separate units that Clayton converted into an elegant space with high-end appliances, custom cabinetry, slate countertops and terrazzo floors. The 3-bedroom, 4-bath home will be plenty of space for Willis, his wife, Emma Heming, and their toddler daughter.
Willis used to live in Central Park West with former wife Demi Moore. He also owns a number of properties across the U.S., including a few holdings in Ketchum, Idaho and two homes in Beverly Hills.
