Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz have just sold their ultra-chic Phoenix mountain haven for $3.1 million. The open-plan glass property is a colorful sanctuary nestled amid the iconic Camelback Mountain – meaning the home offers unrivaled views of the cacti-kissed landscape and the Maricopa County cityscape.
With its kaleidoscopic interiors and majestic exteriors, it is unsurprising that this desert paradise is listed amongst the world's best homes. Here, we take a tour.
The 15 Grammy Award-winner is best known as a singer-songwriter and musician who has sat at the peak of the music industry since the early 2000s. Her husband, Swizz Beatz, is a record producer and rapper who made his career as a DJ. The couple has two children and owns another mansion – the awesome Razor House in La Jolla, California.
Throughout the 7,050-square-foot property, the vibrant interiors pay homage to the couple's personality. The home is filled with fashion books, curated art pieces, and a statement purple grand piano – which acts as the focal point in the main living room space. Alica and Swizz have just given us with new grey living room ideas.
The contemporary home decor inspiration continues throughout the entirety of the cool mountain hangout. We're taking modern kitchen ideas from the vast marble-glazed space, whose countertops glisten in the Arizonan sun.
Meanwhile, the adjoining space offers the ultimate interior design inspiration through its symmetrical home decor and bold-printed soft furnishings.
The equally magnificent main bedroom is a mountaineer's utopia, as the rustic Phoenix landscape envelopes the room and showcases the starry sky above the city. Other lust-worthy features include a walk-in closet, 800-bottle wine cellar, games room, screening area, and a six-car garage.
Beyond the floor-to-ceiling glass walls, the home boasts a negative-edge swimming pool and a spa area that opens out onto the edge of the cliff.
Plus, there is a large sociable area with a fire pit that comes alive when the sun goes down over this striking landscape – and we're taking notes for our future backyard ideas – for the backyard of our dreams.
According to local listing records, the home has been off the market since 2016, when it was first listed for $3.85 million. In March, the estate was just under $3.4 and was purchased at the end of June for $3.1 million. The Grigg's Group handled the listing.
