Pharrell Williams must be happy – the producer and singer-songwriter sold his Brickell penthouse for $9.25 million.

After being on and off the market since 2012, Williams finally sold the two-story unit at the Bristol, at 2127 Brickell Avenue. His former penthouse, complete with a Venetian plaster spiral staircase that leads up to a translucent dome, has five bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, seven parking spaces, a rooftop terrace with a pool and summer kitchen, and a home theater, according to the listing.

Dora Puig of Luxe Living Realty represented Williams, according to the Wall Street Journal. Julian Johnston of Calibre International Realty represented the buyer, a businessman from New Jersey.

Williams first listed the 9,000-square-foot unit in 2012 for $16.8 million, then dropped the price to $10.9 million the following year. Jill Hertzberg of Coldwell Banker’s the Jills team previously had the listing.

Records show “The Voice” judge paid $12.525 million for the unit, which previously belonged to developer Ugo Colombo, in 2007. Colombo developed the 146-unit building in 1993. Williams even sued the developer over leaks in his penthouse in 2009, taking a $525,000 settlement from the condo association.

In addition to its Pininfarina-designed kitchen, Italian travertine floors and teak hardwood floors, Williams decorated the penthouse with his pop art collection, Puig told the Wall Street Journal. She said he relisted the unit because his primary home is in Los Angeles. [WSJ] – Katherine Kallergis
