It took a price chop, but Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz finally found a buyer for their New York City penthouse. The musical couple bought the home from fellow musician Lenny Kravitz for $12.75 million in 2010 and only spent two years in the place before hoisting it on the market for $17.95 million in March 2012. Once upon a time, Kravitz tried to get the same price for the apartment; he completed a full renovation on the home and listed it but had to cut the price over a span of a few years before Keys made an offer.

Although prone to price cuts, the penthouse isn't any less fabulous. Located in SoHo, the Crosby Street condo is uber-modern, with floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings and a floating staircase. The apartment has 6,167 square feet of living space, which doesn't include the additional 3,000 square feet of terraces. Keys and Beatz listed the home after deciding to move to the suburbs. The two bought a sprawling Englewood, N.J., mansion from another A-lister, actor Eddie Murphy, in October 2012 for a reported $12 million.
