Celebrity Real Estate: Alicia Keys, Kesha, Fred Armisen
By Laura Vecsey
Alicia Keys Scales Real Estate Markets in Arizona and Jersey
Recording artist Alicia Keys and her music-producer husband, Swizz Beatz, have listed their Phoenix-area modern home for $3.85 million. The decision to unload the modern Arizona gem comes just after the couple listed their majestic New Jersey spread for $14.9 million. They bought that Garden State estate in 2013 from Eddie Murphy and then set about a pretty cool makeover in order to display their pretty amazing art collection.
With two little kids, the musically-inclined couple said they aren’t making much use of the 7,881-square-foot view home just north of Phoenix. The new moves in the desert and in Jersey come a few years after Keys and Beatz unloaded a pretty sensational loft in her native New York City.
Kesha Finds Buyer in Nashville
With a high-stakes and increasingly ugly legal battle with Sony Music, pop star Kesha is looking to shed her lovely Nashville oasis. The expansive, 4,800-square-foot home was on the market for $1.449 million and has a pending offer.
It may be tough to say goodbye to the place, which is open and light-filled and backs onto a tree-filled state park. It’s the second home the “Tik Tok” singer has parted with, including her Venice Beach abode which fetched her $1.81 million.
Fred Armisen Lists in L.A.
It wasn’t “Portlandia,” but Fred Armisen’s bungalow in Silver Lake did give the comic actor a leg up in one of Los Angeles’ more indie-chic neighborhoods.
Now Armisen is looking to sell the no-nonsense pad for $949,000. The 1927 Craftsman is a cozy 1,400 square feet and contains 3 bedrooms and a plateaued backyard with a deck. He paid $763,000 for the home in 2014.
