Busy Pharrell Williams’ Miami Penthouse for Sale for $11 Million [Video]
Pharrell Williams seems to be everywhere these days.
Over the past few months, he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Happy;” performed at the Grammy Awards, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and the iHeartRadio Music Awards; appeared on TV with Oprah Winfrey and Jimmy Kimmel; sang with Gwen Stefani on “The Voice;” and brought Smokey the Bear hats back into style.
No wonder he is selling his spectacular Miami penthouse. He is never home.
Now at age 40, 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 he founded to benefit underserved children. As part of his charity, he is spearheading construction of a $35 million children’s' center in his hometown of Virginia Beach, Va.
His Brickell Avenue home in Miami displays 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.
Williams paid $12.525 million for his residence in 2007, then spent a few million more transforming it with his decorating talents, art and furniture collection. Its penthouse views take in Biscayne Bay, downtown Miami and the Atlantic Ocean.
