The beloved properties that Bruce has sold in recent years include his beachfront estate in the COMO Parrot Cay resort in Turks and Caicos. Bruce bought an eight acre plot of land on the site in 2000 and built three homes on the site, including a six-bedroom main house and two additional properties each with their own swimming pool.

The houses also benefitted from a playground with its own pirate ship for his children to enjoy, and 1,100 feet of pristine white sand beach.

Meanwhile, their 22.6-acre estate in Westchester, New York, sold for $7.66million in 2020 – a huge 41 percent off its original asking price of $12.95million. The property included four separate houses, two garages, a swimming pool and pool house, and a tennis court.

The estate had three separate houses with swimming pools

Bruce and Emma reportedly decided to sell their various properties after deciding they had no need for so many homes scattered both in and out of the country, and wanted to settle in California with their two daughters, Mabel and Evelyn.
