Alicia Keys’s New York, New York… New York triplex penthouse is so good we named it 3 times! This sunny loft-style 16 room condo has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 4 powder-rooms, and a luxury kitchen with our all time favourite, a pantry. Plus a solarium, media room/library and a 3000 sf private terrace. 30 Crosby Street is where Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz have called home for the last two years and now it’s up for grabs for $17.95 million!
The pièce de résistance however, is the stair case which looks more like a Damien Hirst installation with its floating stairs. This surreal suspended staircase leads to the master suit which features a spa, walk in dressing area and not forgetting, another private terrace.
And for home improvement fans, Sotheby’s – who are marketing the property) – interestingly pointed out that none of the walls are load bearing, so reconfiguration is easy (once you’ve found a good builder).
The exterior walls are floor to ceiling glass and provide stunning views of arguably the hottest spot in New York’s Soho.
As if this house doesn’t already have it all? It also comes with the latest security and automated entertainment systems and a wine cellar. Our only question is… when’s the open house?
