Enter the Most Gorgeous New Jersey Celebrity Dream Home of All Time
Grammy award winner Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz designed a 25,000-square-foot dream home in Englewood.
They originally purchased the mansion from Hollywood icon Eddie Murphy back in 2013 for just over $10 million.
This place is massive.
It's got 32 rooms and sits on just about four acres of land.
Amenities? There are a ton. Six bedrooms, nine full and six half bathrooms, foyer with staircase, two elevators, formal living, and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen, conservatory, family room, home theater, two-lane bowling alley, professional recording studio, indoor pool pavilion, indoor art gallery and ballroom, and five-car garage and more.
Outside there are front and rear motor courts, porte-cochere, and gardens.
Oh, and check this. There are also two additional vacant lots that come with the property.
In 2015, the couple put the home on the market for just shy of $15 million.
There were no takers.
Fast forward to last year and the house finally sold...for $6 million.
Ouch. That is a $4 million loss. Remember, they originally purchased it for $10 million.
I thought that the property taxes were a typo, but no, they were $264,747 in 2021.
$264,747. You can purchase a decent condo or townhome for that amount of money, and those are just the property taxes.
Whoever was lucky enough to snag this home for $6 million is fortunate because this is a mansion truly made for an artist.
Englewood is one of the most upscale and affluent towns in the entire state.
I know you're curious, let's take a look inside. Maybe Alicia left a Grammy behind.
