Music power couple Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz are selling their insanely chic NYC urban mansion for $17,950,000, according to Curbed. After a quick stint as home owners of this particular SoHo home, Alicia and Swizz are looking to make a tidy little profit on the property they bought from fellow rockstar Lenny Kravitz in February 2010 for $12,750,000. Now listed for an eye-popping $5,200,000 more than their not-that-long-ago purchase price, Keys and Beatz are likely to make out like bandits – IF they can sell the property for the asking price. Kravitz didn’t fare so well – so hopefully Alicia, hubby and baby Egypt fare better in the celebrity real estate game.
The Keys/Beatz household is a 6,167 square foot triplex Penthouse with an additional 3,000 square feet of enchanting terraces. Enter via keyed elevator to either floor; this magnificent sun filled loft has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 4 powder rooms and enormous state-of-the-art windowed gourmet eat-in kitchen, walk-in butlers pantry, separate formal dining room that faces East encased in a glass solarium, an expansive living room with fireplace, library/media room. All the living areas are surrounded by undoubtedly one of the most beautiful private terraces in all of SoHo. A floating glass staircase leads to a separate private master suite complete with spa, pass through dressing area and private terrace. Should a new owner want to make some changes to the place, reconfiguring is simple, as there are no load bearing walls.
