Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz Say Goodbye to Their Hilltop Phoenix Getaway
Power couple Alicia Keys and Kasseem Daoud Dean, known as Swizz Beatz, have quietly held a secluded getaway in Phoenix, Arizona for years. First acquiring it in 2008, they often traveled here for holidays. However, the pair just moved on from the 7,050-square-foot hilltop home, selling it for $3.1 million. If you find yourself “Fallin’” for the property now, you’ll just have to wait until it’s for sale again.
The abode was on the market for roughly 45 days before it sold, according to listing agent Scott Griggs of The Griggs Group. Keys and Dean simply weren’t using it as much, but the contemporary home with huge walls of glass is still as gorgeous as ever. When asked about what makes the house so special, Griggs easily answered, “It’s located on Camelback Mountain, which is an iconic location for us.”
Anyone who is familiar with the Phoenix area knows exactly how prestigious this mountain is. In particular, the musically talented pair’s former home is gated and nestled high on the slopes. Serving up stunning views of the city, mountains, and canyons, it’s a prime place to relax in the dry Arizona heat. Or, to write songs and melodies in peace.
Luckily, it’s also easy to cool down at this 4-bedroom, 5.5-bath paradise. With a negative-edge pool and beautiful spa, the new owner won’t need to worry about feeling like a “Girl on Fire” during the summer. A wet bar and 800-bottle wine cellar are also there to quench one’s thirst while entertaining.
Griggs worked together with the couple’s California broker, Stephen Sweeney, to get the deal done.
