A stunning home dubbed the Razor House due to its perch on the very edge of a California cliff has been bought by singer-songwriter Alicia Keys for $20.8 million.
The real estate listing of the architectural masterpiece that hangs off the La Jolla bluffs went on the market last year for $30 million but the price was eventually reduced to $24.995 million and then even further still, in order to force a quick sale. At almost $21 million, it is the priciest sale in the region so far this year.
The estate was designed by acclaimed architect Wallace E Cunningham, who took full advantage of the 10,240-square-foot home’s seat in Torrey Pines State Park by installing floor-to-ceiling windows in almost every room to offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, just north of San Diego.
