Marvel Fans Would Be Tickled to Know This Cool Fact About Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz’ Home

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz are about to make Marvel fans go crazy after their huge 2019 purchase.

The married music couple spoke with Architectural Digest about their 11,000-square-foot California mansion that they bought two years ago, and even shared some cool details and photos. One of those details is that their home, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, reportedly is the inspiration for Tony Stark’s futuristic bachelor pad in the “Iron Man” movies.

Keys said, “Kids who love Iron Man they’re like ‘That’s the Iron Man House.’ Listen, not only kids…grownups” the couple said, simultaneously. Swizz Beatz, born Kasseem Dean, followed up with “I don’t blame Tony Stark and them using this as an example to fight the world.”

“We’re saving the world from here too,” quipped Keys.

The home was originally built in 2007 by architectural designer Wallace Cunningham; while its original name is Razor House, the R&B singer and her producer husband decided to give it another name, Dreamland. Keys described her magical home as “a place to create dreams and to be bold enough to dream your wildest dream—for us to even be here is a wildest dream.”

The home “Dreamland” not only is where the couple spends their time dreaming; the purchase of the home also started with a dream. Beatz said he saved a photo of the home as his screen saver for eight years as he watched it be sold and reappear on the market during that time. “I was low-key manifesting it,” he said.

“When your screen saver comes to life, it’s unbelievably crazy.” Even though this was a long-time dream of his, Beatz wasn’t sure if it would be the same for his wife. First, the “Girl Is On Fire” songstress is originally from New York — as is he — and secondly, Beatz was married to someone else when he initially had this dream.

But it seems that Keys, who married Beatz in 2010, is just as onboard about the house as he is. Comparing their home to their musical artwork she said, “When you hear a song or something we’ve produced, the foundation is to make people feel good and feel loved. That’s what our art is about.”

She added, “When you come into our home, that’s exactly what we want you to feel. We want you to feel loved, to feel safe, to feel relaxed. We want you to have a great meal. We want you to feel inspired.”
