The Colts Neck, N.J., home of “Living Single” and “Chicago” star Queen Latifah is on the market for $2.39 million.

Coldwell Banker Residential’s Robin Jackson has the listing for the 7,500-square-foot home, which boasts six bedrooms and five full- and three half-baths on 9 acres, the Wall Street Journal reported. An exercise room, game room, five-car garage and heated, Olympic-sized swimming pool are also features.

Queen Latifah, whose real name is Dana Owens, purchased the sprawling pad in her home state for $1.685 million from a developer in 2001, the Journal reported. Now that she has her own daytime talk show, “The Queen Latifah Show,” based in California, she is spending less time in the Garden State, Jackson told the Journal.

“Many incredible memories have been shared with those closest to me and my family in this home,” Owens told the Journal. “I am confident that the new owners will love the home and the Colts Neck community as much as I do.”

Likely not up for grabs, Jackson told the Journal, is a Yamaha piano on the home’s ground floor that was featured in Alicia Keys and Jay Z’s music video “Empire State of Mind.” Emblazoned with an image of the New York City skyline, Owens picked up the ivories at a charity auction. [WSJ]Julie Strickland
