Keys has scored one of today’s contemporary masterpieces, the Razor House in La Jolla, California.
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.
