You could almost see Die Hard’s John McClane escaping to this secluded Idaho home to recover from a heavy session of battling villains.
But in fact, this lakeside property in Aspen Lakes Hailey is owned by Hollywood star Bruce Willis who bought it in 2003, three years after his divorce from Demi Moore and is rumoured to have spent a small fortune doing it up. It’s on the market for $15 million (£9.7 million) through Sothebys International Realty.
It seems likely that Willis and second wife Emma Heming have outgrown the six bedroom, six bathroom home, after it was reported late last year that she is expecting the couple’s first child in April. Willis already has three daughters with first wife Moore.
As you’d expect from Willis –a fan of recreational fishing – the home has multiple ponds, flowing streams and a custom pool with waterfalls. There’s also the opportunity to ski, hike and bike close by.
And being the home of one of the world’s most bankable stars, this estate delivers on the privacy front – it’s set on a thickly wooded 20 acre site – which, along with an extensive security system, has no doubt helped to keep the paparazzi at bay.
The proprety also has its own heated balconies and pavers from the road to the house. The large master bathroom comes with a “jetted soaking tub”, granite shower and one of the largest (and most impressive) purpose-built master closets we’ve ever seen.
Perfect for those seeking an A-list lifestyle.

Another exciting week. I’ve just appointed an agent and the photographer is coming around tomorrow. I’m hoping our home is on the web as soon as possible to tempt those looking for a new property in south west London.
We had been considering using an online estate agent: the fees are very low for what appears to be the same service, but we weren’t so sure after reading some mixed reviews. The one we were considering was on all the major property portals and would negotiate with the buyer and feedback to the solicitor when necessary. In the end we decided to go with a more traditional agent – we’re first-time sellers afterall and feel that we need some extra support.
Last weekend we also went to check out some potential areas to buy a new home in, although we know we can’t really view anything before we get our place on the market. The problem is that we know exactly what we want and how much we want to pay, which is making it hard because there doesn’t seem to be that much around at the moment.
I have a feeling that a juggling apprenticeship will make an excellent Christmas present.
