Grammy-winning superstar Alicia Keys sold her Phoenix Camelback Mountain home for $3.1 million on Friday.
The “Girl on Fire” singer-songwriter and pianist bought the 7,050-square-foot mansion with its panoramic views of the Valley in 2008.
The house with 20-foot-windows and a glass waterfall is designed with a Frank Lloyd Wright look. The home has four bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, a six-car garage, a negative-edge pool, a spa, a theater, a game room, a wet bar, an 800-bottle wine cellar, an exercise room and a gourmet chef's kitchen.
"We bought in Phoenix because it's a magical place. The way the mountains remind you of your smallness and inspire you to be great all at the same time is so powerful," Keys and her husband, Swizz Beatz, said in a statement for The Arizona Republic in 2016 when it was listed.
"The wonderful climate, the amazing landscape, the arts and culture, and the fact that Phoenix is not as overrun as some other warm-weather destinations, was also a big reason for us," they said.
Keys has won 15 Grammys for songs including "Fallin'," "No One," "Empire State of Mind" and "If I Ain't Got You."
She and her husband, a music producer, have two sons.
Scott Grigg, owner of The Grigg's Group with Realty Executives, worked with Keys and Beatz on the sale of their Phoenix home. He also worked with Phoenix Suns' Devin Booker on the 2017 purchase of his Paradise Valley home.
Keys and Beatz listed their Phoenix home in 2016 but took it off the market in 2018. They listed the house again last year.
The couple paid $3.9 million for the house, according to real estate records.
"The home was a dream come true, that's why we called it Dreamland. It's open and light, equipped with all modern amenities," the couple said in 2016. "It has the most beautiful views and everyone who comes is always so moved by how it feels in the house. There's really no place in the world like it!"
