Hot Property | Alicia Keys gets into the La Jolla state of mind

Alicia Keys has shelled out $20.8 million for La Jolla’s cutting-edge Razor House. Also: Jonah Hill, Alex Rodriguez and ‘Avengers’ director Anthony Russo.

A cutting-edge blend of concrete and glass, the jagged structure hugs the side of a cliff and takes in sweeping ocean views. (Gary Kasl / SandKasl Imaging)

Walls of glass line the living spaces, which include a two-story great room, rounded living room, billiards room, library, tiered movie theater and two kitchens.

The entire structure wraps around a custom courtyard. Perhaps the home’s most stunning space, it features a collection of concrete monoliths around a turf lawn and fire pit.

A loggia lines the home’s backside, descending to a swimming pool and grassy lawn. Manicured gardens, lily ponds and a tennis court fill out the rest of the 2.4-acre grounds.
