Here's What Alicia Keys And Swizz Beatz Are Selling Their New Jersey Estate For

Power couple and acclaimed hitmakers Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys are in the process of handing over the keys to their sprawling New Jersey mansion to new owners. While the buyers of the have not yet been disclosed, reports, according to the New York Post, suggested that they are in contract to sell the property below the $9.9 million asking price. The couple purchased the estate, famously known as Bubble Hill, from living legend Eddie Murphy in 2013 at a whopping $10.42 million. A year later, in a separate transaction, they snatched the empty lot adjacent to the house, which also belonged to Murphy, for $1.7 million.

The duo went on to build a $2 million art gallery on the empty lot to house their extensive art collection, only to put both properties as a bundle on the market for $14.9 million in 2015. Unfortunately, it was not enough to grab the attention of buyers — well, until 2021, when it was re-listed at the reduced price of $9.9 million. The listing is held by Christopher Boel of Christie's International Real Estate.

The Exterior

The deluxe mansion lies in an affluent gated community in Englewood, New Jersey. It is a colonial-style brick home built in the early 1980s, spanning over 40,000 square feet of living space. The single-family property nests in a quiet space among tall trees, manicured lawns, and beautiful landscapes. Due to the vastness of the estate, it often takes a couple of minutes to drive through the iron gates to the detached garage, which has six separate entrances. To keep the surroundings green year-round, paved pathways loop around the property to help people keep off the carpet grass.

The backyard features a 3,000-square foot terrace complete with a fire pit and lounge chairs littered on impressive flooring. A short brick wall demarcates the area, along with multiple towering trees and well-maintained privacy shrubs. We love the terrace design because it allows one to take in the estate's beauty and lush greenery while resting comfortably.

The interior

The estate is a 32-room mansion comprising of six bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and five powder rooms. Per the New York Post, the house was built "by an entertainer for an entertainer." So, it should be no surprise to find luxurious amenities and features such as a high-tech recording studio, screening room, movie theater, indoor pool, two-lane bowling alley, racquetball court, two tennis ball courts, wine cellar, five fireplaces, and many more. A floating staircase leads to the owner's suite, which features a fireplace, lounge area, an expansive full bathroom with jetted bathtub and gorgeous wood panelings, and a massive walk-in closet.

The secondary bedrooms are just as impressive, each consisting of a lounge area, comfortable bed, private bathrooms, sizable walk-in closets, and large windows that illuminate the room. Considering the white walls, neutral-colored furniture pieces, and dark to light flooring, it is safe to say that the interior of this estate drips of contemporary elegance. The kitchen and dining area, specifically, bear witness to this apt description since they feature an open floor design and dark-gray and silver fixtures.
