Peek Inside Beyoncé’s Secret Condo Visit

The $21.5 million property she toured without Jay-Z.

Adding fuel to those smoldering divorce rumors, the New York Post is reporting that Beyoncé was spotted touring a $21.5 million condo in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood.

A new home for her, Jay-Z, and baby Blue Ivy? Not likely, since this 4,054-square-foot pad is nearly half the size of the luxurious TriBeCa condo the Carter family currently calls home.

According to the Post‘s source, “She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly.” Additional sources also said the fact that Jay-Z wasn’t there was a big red flag, since he “has always been extremely involved in their real estate deals.”

While many people say it’s just a matter of when, not if, the high-profile couple will split, Beyoncé may be getting her ducks in a row and finding a new home.

If it’s true and they’re no longer “Crazy in Love,” this New York City condo is definitely fit for “Queen B.”

The magnificent penthouse offers unequalled panoramic city and river vistas on one of Chelsea’s finest blocks. Every inch of this immaculate duplex reflects superior craftsmanship, utmost attention to detail, and ultrarefined finishes at every turn, with a backdrop of sweeping views of the Empire State Building, High Line, Hudson River, and more from floor-to-ceiling windows.

The custom-designed living space is complemented by a private 642-square-foot, north-facing terrace that showcases city sights. Completely renovated to perfection, this large, light-bathed five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath duplex penthouse was made for entertaining. With huge formal areas and the massive outdoor terrace accessible from both the grand living room and library, it offers a seamless flow for intimate barbecues and large-scale parties.

A top-of-the-line open chef’s kitchen faces south and west and is equipped with a breakfast area, white Carrara marble, Arclinea Italian cabinetry, Boffi fixtures, premium appliances including a Viking range with a vented hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and wine refrigerator.

Other highlights of this enviable residence are 9-foot-2-inch ceiling heights, charcoal granite and teak floors, teak wall panels and Venetian plaster walls, custom electronic shades throughout, stone tiles in the spa-like baths, a custom-designed staircase with an intricate bronze railing, and spacious laundry room with a full-size Miele washer and dryer, teak and stainless steel cabinetry.

The sprawling master bedroom retreat is the piece de resistance with its spectacular views, massive teak closet providing loads of luxury storage, and opulent master bath with ribbed marble walls and Boffi fixtures.

Perfect for Beyoncé, the luxurious building has a 24-hour doorman and sits in a prized location, just minutes from West Chelsea’s best spots. 

Will she or won’t she? Only time will tell.
