Here’s Why Bruce Wilis and Emma Heming Wilis Could Not Let Go of Their Turks and Caicos Beachfront Compound
Letting go of things we love is hard especially, if it served as your home for a very long time. The American actor, Bruce Wilis had to part with his Turks and Caicos compound, where he exchanged vows with the love of his life not just once, but twice. It must be one of the toughest decisions the actor had to make.
Way back in 2000, he and his wife Emma Heming Wilis bought the beachfront property and made several refurbishments since then. The whole lot spans 7.37 acres, where the five-bedroom main abode sits as well as a yoga pavilion, and two additional small houses that have three bedrooms each.
The main home has 5,000 square feet of living space that has the right mix of the indoor and outdoor vibes. Most of the lounging areas have sliding glass walls that lead you to the swimming pool and veranda at the back of the house.
The second floor of the house is entirely for the master’s bedroom only. It has a private patio where Mr. and Mrs. Wilis could always gaze at the shore where they tied the knots. The two guest suites also boast their own personal sun decks. Imagine waking up every morning inhaling the salty, fresh air while you take your time devouring your coffee.
In 2009, the two got married in there. Ten years later, they renewed their vows to commemorate their 10th wedding anniversary at the exact location where they initially said I do. The compound witnessed a lot of unforgettable memories that the couple shared for more or less two decades.
There are also other cool amenities like an enormous swimming pool, a pirate-inspired playground, a beach volleyball court, butler service, and many more. Although they are already registered under the COMO Parrot Cay resort‘s vicinity, all of the said amenities are conveniently accessible from the Wilis’ property.
The pair has to move to the West Coast together with their two adorable daughters, Evelyn Penn Wilis, and Mabel Ray Wilis. They initially listed their 13,500 square-foot seaside home for $33 million and sold it for $27 million which almost broke Oliver’s Cove $27.5-million record for closing the most expensive real estate sale on Turks and Caicos in 2016.
As much as they want to keep the property to preserve the memories of their love life there, the couple had to choose the more practical move. Aside from this lovely beachfront compound, the pair also put their Bedford Corners, New York home in the market for $9.39 million.
