Alicia Keys to Buy Eddie Murphy's $15 Million Home? (House of the Day)

Alicia Keys and Eddie Murphy's home

Funnyman Eddie Murphy's stunning Englewood, N.J., mansion has been on the market for a while, at a serious asking price of $14.9 million. We've had our eye on this sweet piece of real estate for years -- what with its two-lane bowling alley, racquetball court, indoor swimming pool pavilion, wooden spa and elevators. (Whew!) The majestic brick manse, set upon 3.91 acres, even has its own full-sized recording studio! (Because, in case you weren't aware of his 1982 hit, "Boogie in Your Butt," Murphy is also a recording artist. Though not necessarily a good one).

Which brings us to our next point. Rumor has it that one Miss Alicia Keys -- an actual Grammy-winning recording artist -- is actually buying Murphy's pad at a discount price of $12 million. A friend's rate, perhaps? Keys, her husband, hip-hop recording artist Swizz Beats, and their brand-new baby, Egypt, are allegedly in the process of closing on the pretty home. AOL Real Estate called the Realtor representing the listing, who declined to comment.

Hey, if you don't want it, Alicia, we'll take it...


Dennis McCormack of Sotheby's International Realty has the listing.
