The SoHo penthouse Alicia Keys purchased from Lenny Kravitz in 2010 just hit the market for $17. 95 million, a good $10 million over Kravitz paid for the 6,000-and square-foot attic in 2000.
The 16-room pad at 30 Crosby St. includes five-bedrooms, a 3,000 square-foot terrace, floating stairs, and glass-encased dining area. Keys and husband Swiss Beatz, a rapper, painter, and manufacturer, dwelt in the giant attic for a couple of decades, paying $14.5 million.
In one room, a Ducati motorcycle stands in front of a photo of two elephants sandwiching a scantily clad woman holding a red balloon. Available through a dressing room and outside patio, the master suite includes a private spa with a duel nozzle shower surrounded by beige and beige tile. The living room fireplace is encased in floor-to-ceiling marble. Needless to say, the state-of-the-art sound system rocks.
“This is one of the greatest apartments in all SoHo,” says Sotheby’s International listing agent Eric Malley, who runs a small team in the upscale brokerage. “It is on a quiet stretch of Crosby St. with cobblestone out front and compact boutiques throughout the street. Tourist foot traffic is reduced. The views here from the terrace are breathtaking. This is a pre-war building in SoHo with great outdoor area and amazing views. It is coming on the market at just the perfect time.”
