Singer Alicia Keys and husband Kasseem Dean are now the owners of a beautiful white-colored mansion with glass rising on the cliffside. The property is also called Razor House and is located in the mountains north of San Diego.
Alicia and Kasseem have now given their own name to the property, which is Dreamland. It is full of artworks by Black artists, some Ferraris, a pool, and a recording studio in a space that has been named “the grown-up floor” by Kasseem.
With the Pacific Ocean in view, the mansion is believed to have been inspired by Tony Stark’s mansion in Iron Man, as stated by Architectural Digest. In an interview with the magazine, Kasseem said that he had a picture of the mansion on his phone eight years before he and his wife moved in, and it was important for him.
Initially, Kasseem Dean was worried that Alicia Keys wouldn't shift from the west while their real estate agent informed that the home was on the market. However, once Alicia Keys went inside the house, she started to imagine her life there.

After purchasing the mansion in 2019, Keys and Dean hired interior designer Kelly Behun to transform the place in the way they wanted it to be. Dean and Behun have known each other for a long time.
Moroccan wool rugs, velvet, and shearing upholstery looking into an earthy color palette were included in the surroundings. Furniture items were added in the building's curves alongside round couches and circular coffee tables all around the house.
