Celebrity Homes: Alicia Keys Buys the Razor House - America's Coolest Home


POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "Alicia Keys Buys America's Coolest Home"

Its sleek contemporary lines and commanding views over the Pacific Ocean have graced the pages of cutting-edge magazines and websites around the world, in addition to a starring role in Visa Black Card and Calvin Klein television commercials. The "Girl on Fire" and 15-time-Grammy-winner, Alicia Keys, is the big winner once again and holds the keys to the Razor House as its new owner. Designed by Wallace E. Cunningham in La Jolla, California, it was on the market originally at $45 million, then at $30 million, reduced to $24.995 million, with Keys paying $20.8 million.

Built in 2007, the Razor House extends several stories below the original surface so that each roof forms a terrace to the adjacent upper floor. The center of the structure is essentially hollowed out creating a perimeter house wrapped around an open courtyard which allows daylight, moonlight and stunning views. The main house has 10,240 square feet of living space including two master suites, two additional bedrooms, six baths, two steam rooms/showers, gym, roof-top spa and built-in outdoor BBQ. The master-suite baths include showers and freestanding tubs as well as closets. The detached multi-leveled guest house has 1,301 square feet and includes two bedrooms and two baths, each having separate entry points on different levels.

Luxury finishes and special touches include travertine-stone floors that run continuously from interior to exterior, solid-walnut flooring in the library and on the family-room ceiling and suede-wrapped walls in the primary master suite. The library contains a custom Ralph Lauren glass-and-stainless pool table. Both the main kitchen and service kitchen are furnished with Gaggenau, Miele, Subzero and Hoshizaki in multiples to cover large-scale entertaining while a computer room houses all of the homes integration and automation systems. A subterranean garage houses four cars and a glass elevator operates from the subterranean garage level all the way to the rooftop-terrace level of the home. Entertainment includes a state-of-the-art theater and a 5,100-cubic-foot-infinity swimming pool that visually blends in with the ocean.

One of California's most picturesque locations on the Pacific Coast, La Jolla has been the home of Theodore "Dr. Seuss" Geisel, actor Gregory Peck, Jonas Salk who developed the polio vaccine, astronaut Sally Ride, NFL pioneer Paul Brown and actress Raquel Welch.

Singer-songwriter Alicia Keys has scored one of today's contemporary masterpieces for $20.8 million, originally listed at $45 million, and conveyed with a guarantee of spectacular sunsets. It is located in La Jolla near Torrey Pines Golf Course, Del Mar Racetrack and the La Jolla Playhouse. Josh Altman and Matt Altman of Douglas Elliman were the brokers for the sale.
