A year ago, a stunning La Jolla home by designer Wallace E. Cunningham hit the market but failed to find an immediate buyer. That changed when musician Alicia Keys recently bought the “Razor House” for $20.8 million.
According to Architectural Digest, “The incredible multilevel abode—which is often compared to Tony Stark’s luxurious home in the Iron Man movies—is perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Nearly all of the walls of the residence are glass, providing sweeping views of the landscape from almost every room—and there’s even a glass elevator. Inside are four bedrooms (including two master suites), a giant round living room with a fireplace, a fitness space, two steam rooms, a library, a den, a theater, and a kitchen outfitted with Gaggeneau, Miele, and Hoshizaki appliances. The floors are mostly travertine stone, with walnut flooring in the library, where there is also a custom-made Ralph Lauren pool table. In the family room, there’s a custom-made shagreen liquor cabinet and bar.
