Finally! Pharrell Williams’ Brickell penthouse sold for $9M

Trying to sell his Brickell penthouse since 2012, Pharrell Williams’ finally let it go for $9.25 million. The producer and singer-songwriter must be pretty “happy” we reckon, as his 2-story unit at the Bristol had been on and off the market for quite a few years.

“The Voice” judge had originally listed the Brickell property for $16.8 million in 2012, and later dropped the price to $10.9 million in the following year (likely after he realized that he was way overpriced to begin with). According to his broker, Williams only wanted to sell the residence because he lives mostly in LA.

So, what’s part and parcel of this 9,000-square-foot Bristol residence, besides bearing the “ex celeb home” tag?

For starters, it’s located on prime residential waterfront. Perched in the Bristol Tower high-rise, it comes loaded with amenities. The two-story penthouse has five bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms. It features a dreamy Venetian plaster spiral staircase that leads up to a translucent dome. It boasts of a rooftop terrace and pool, summer kitchen, home theater and seven parking spots. Speaking of the décor, it’s got a Pininfarina-designed kitchen, vaulted interior living spaces, Italian travertine floors and teak hardwood floors.

Pharrell had to shell out $12.525 million to acquire the penthouse in 2007. He also ended up suing the developer, Ugo Colombo in 2009 because of leaks in the residence. The case was finally settled after a payment of $525,000 by its condo association. We hope its new residents have better luck with the property!
