Bruce Willis is hoping for a big payout. The veteran action-flick actor has listed another one of his real estate holdings, this time the Beverly Hills home he picked up in 2004. The nearly 1-acre property is listed for a whopping $22 million; Willis paid $9 million for it nine years ago - that's a 144 percent price increase.
Why the jump in price? Southern California real estate is a hot buy. Beverly Hills home values are increasing, with Zillow data showing values up 18.3 percent year-over-year. And as far as location goes, Willis' home, located at 1005 Benedict Canyon Dr, Beverly Hills, is in the coveted 90210 ZIP code, just steps from the Beverly Hills Hotel.
According to Real Estalker's report, it looks like Willis, along with wife Emma Heming, also have put in a lot of work into the 10,379-square-foot home.
Boasting 11 bedrooms and 11 baths, Willis' home has large living spaces that open up to a courtyard with a fountain. The updated kitchen has a large center island and restaurant-quality appliances. Outside, the home's grounds include a tennis court and pool.
Willis has a large collection of real estate and recently added to it, buying a Manhattan apartment from U2 bassist Adam Clayton. He also holds quite a few properties in Idaho but has been trying to dump them in recent years. Currently he has a Hailey, ID lodge listed for $12 million, as well as the bar he once co-owned with ex-wife Demi Moore.
The house is listed by Rayni Romito of Hilton & Hyland.
