Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz will say good-bye to their art-filled New Jersey manse, the centerpiece of a 5.42-acre compound in Englewood that once belonged to Eddie Murphy (if those walls could recount True Hollywood stories). Art-filled isn't just a nice way of saying they have expensive taste in frames; as the listing photos show, pieces by KAWS and Maya Hayuk, along with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Ernie Barnes and Keith Haring, grace the walls of this all-brick, 32-room home built in 1980, which boasts a movie theatre, indoor pool pavilion, bowling alley, and a pro recording studio (please say "Party All The Time" was recorded here). The listing bundles together the main house and a coach house, both purchased from Murphy (for $10.4 and $1.7 million, respectively). The couple also dropped $2 million to renovate and add an art gallery, even though it's now not big enough to house their expanding collection, so they'll barely break even if someone meets their ask. No word where the couple will head next; they had previously lived in a New York condo owned by Lenny Kravitz.
