Musician/actress Alicia Keys has accumulated a few awards in her 29 years including 12 Grammy awards, 11 Billboard Music awards, 3 BET awards and 3 MTV Video Music awards.
And as is customary with this sort of runaway success, Ms. Keys has also accumulated some fancy real estate along the way.
Ms. Keys, a native Manhattanite, is putting one of those larger monuments to her success on the market: a seven-bedroom house in Syosset, on the North Shore of Long Island, for $3.85 million. No word on whether she’ll throw in a statuette or two.
“You don’t feel lost in the house,” said Shaun Osher, the founder of CORE, the real estate firm that has the listing. “It’s tastefully done within the scale of the property. That makes it feel luxurious and grand, but not ostentatious or over the top.”
That scale, however, is definitely plus-sized: the two-story house has about 9,000 square feet.
It was built in 1981 — the year Ms. Keys was born — in a style that Mr. Osher describes as “almost Mediterranean.”
The house, where Ms. Keys has lived since 2004, has seven bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, a piano room and a three-car garage. Out back, there is a 2,000-square-foot deck, a pool, a pool house and a Jacuzzi.
“It’s on a cul-de-sac and it’s very private,” Mr. Osher said. “And it certainly feels like you’re out of the city.”
