Bruce Willis sells Idaho ski home

Super star Bruce Willis has parted with his stunning ski home.

Bruce Willis has shown that even mega movie stars can experience troubles with moving their prime real estate.

The on-screen action hero finally sold the Idaho home he listed in 2011.

Though he bought it in 2003 for less than its final sale price of $5.5 million, a sales record in the Hailey, Idaho area, it was an excruciating drop from its original list price of $15 million.

In the past 15 years, Mr Willis rebuilt the main house, added a guest house, gym, streams and ponds and paid years of property taxes, so whether he made profit, broke even or took a loss is not known.

The home is on 20 acres between Hailey and Ketchum on Flying Heart Lake and the compound is completely private with thick woodlands, multiple ponds and streams.

The 780-square metre home is a six-bedroom, seven-bath log house with heated terraces and balconies.

Inside there are vaulted ceilings, views of Flying Heart Lake and the mountains, three fireplaces, and large gourmet kitchen.

The 204-square metre master suite has a fireplace and sitting area with jetted soaking tub, granite steam shower and dressing room with built-in dressers and shelving.

Outside is a resort-size heated swimming pool with waterfalls and slides.

Skiing, hiking, biking, live music and a theatre are only minutes away from the gated, secure property.

No stranger to collecting exceptional real estate, Mr Willis has been buying and selling homes for years.

He has owned a number of homes in the Los Angeles area, Idaho, apartments in Manhattan and most recently purchased a mansion in Bedford, New York.

As more and more of Hollywood’s actors segue into buying and flipping real estate, Mr Willis is near the top of the list and in recent years, he has been gravitating towards more real estate activity on the East Coast.
