Pharrell Williams Fabulous Miami Penthouse For Sale
Pharrell Williams seems to be everywhere these days. In just the last few months, he was nominated for an Academy Award for “Best Original Song” for “Happy,” performed at the Grammys, Coachella and the iHeartRadio Music Awards, appeared on TV with Oprah and Jimmy Kimmel, sang with Gwen Stefani on “The Voice,” and brought Smokey the Bear hats back into style. Pharrell's two-months-plus concert tour with Bruno Mars recently started at the Hollywood Bowl. And he is replacing Cee Lo Green as a coach on “The Voice” for season seven. No wonder he is selling his spectacular Miami condo penthouse. He is never home.
Pharrell has been a virtual whirlwind of activity since his career start in 1992 when he formed a production company, The Neptunes, with his childhood friend, Chad Hugo, to promote and sell the work of hip-hop, R&B and pop artists. Now at age 40 and a lifelong “Star Trek” fan, Williams has an estimated net worth of $80 million and adding more money with multiple projects in various stages of completion. He recently auctioned his Smokey hat for over $44,000 to raise money for his charity, From One Hand to Another, an organization that Pharrell founded to benefit under served children. As part of his charity, Pharrell is spearheading the construction of a $35 million childrens' center in his hometown of Virginia Beach.
Pharrell's Brickell Avenue Miami home demonstrates his many talents beyond music writing, producing and singing. He has created several clothing lines, designed jewelry for Louis Vuitton and was once named “Best Dressed Man in the World” by “Esquire”magazine. Located 40 stories above Biscayne Bay atop Bristol Tower, the 10,000-square-foot penthouse has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, 30-foot ceilings, a sky-view ceiling dome, his own gym, theater, game room, an additional 5,000 square feet of terraces, rooftop swimming pool, summer kitchen and, perhaps the condo's most important luxury - seven parking spots. Pharrell paid $12.525 million for his home in 2007, then spent a few million more transforming it into a mogul palace with his decorating talents, art and furniture collection. Penthouse views take in Biscayne Bay, downtown Miami, and the Atlantic Ocean. Miami Beach, Coconut Grove and American Airlines Arena are just a few minutes away. Asking price is $10.999 million.
