Fifteen-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys and her producer-husband Swizz Beatz have taken advantage of the booming housing market and sold their modern Camelback Mountain holiday home in Phoenix, Arizona. Never on a month of Sundays: The Weeknd calls time on the Grammys The home, with stunning views of Echo Canyon, Piestewa Peak, Mummy Mountain and the Phoenix city lights, sold in June for US$3.1 million. The superstar couple are big fans of modern architecture, proven when they bought the Razor House in La Jolla, California, in 2019 for US$20.8 million – well down from the original listing price of around US$30 million. The Razor House is an ultra-modern home with commanding views over the Pacific Ocean and has been used in Visa Black Card and Calvin Klein commercials.

Though they loved their Phoenix getaway home, time restraints due to work obligations made it almost impossible to enjoy the property the way they had intended. Gated and located at the end of a cul-de-sac, the Phoenix house measures 7,050 sq ft with four bedrooms and six baths. Rooms are spacious and focus on the views. Special features include an 800-bottle wine room, a wet bar, home theatre/game room, an eat-in chef’s kitchen with pantry, a six-car garage with a lift to the main living area and an infinity pool and spa.

The master suite also commands stunning views, is spacious enough for the grand piano as seen in the home’s listing photographs, and has a huge dressing room walk-in wardrobe along with a private terrace. The couple’s current home, Razor House, ranks near the top of any list of the best contemporary homes found anywhere in the US from Los Angeles to the Hamptons. Built in 2007, the home extends several stories below the ground so that each roof forms a terrace to the adjacent upper floor. The centre of the structure is hollowed out, creating a perimeter house wrapped around an open courtyard with stunning views out and even through the house.

The detached multilevel guest house has 1,300 sq ft and includes two bedrooms and two baths, each with separate entry points on different levels.
