Queen_Latifah_NJ_homeGrammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, actress and talk show host Queen Latifah has listed her nine-acre property in Colts Neck, N.J.

The property is the first luxury home that Latifah purchased. The custom home, built in 2001, was designed for comfort and entertaining, and has been used as a retreat and gathering place for family and friends over the years.

Surrounded by equestrian farms and estates, meandering country roads and sprawling parks, the property is being offered at $2,399,000. Its new owners can feel the “U.N.I.T.Y.” inside more than 7,000 square feet of living space, the home’s many outdoor recreation areas, and its heated, Olympic-sized swimming pool.

Classic and contemporary best describe the home, which combines traditional design with contemporary architectural details. The six-bedroom home features an open floor plan with hardwood flooring throughout, a grand foyer, and sunken, two-story great room complete with a gas fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to decks. Other amenities include a library with gas fireplace and half bath, an office with gas fireplace and private deck overlooking professionally landscaped grounds, and an au pair suite with full bath.

The kitchen features cream color, glaze-finished cabinets, a custom marble and bamboo backsplash, marble countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, butler’s pantry, dining area and sunroom.

The second floor offers a private sitting area and balcony overlooking the great room. The master bedroom suite features hardwood floors, a double-sided gas fireplace, ample closets and private deck. The luxury master bath offers a steam shower, marble Jacuzzi soaking tub, skylight, his-and-hers vanities and private rest rooms. In addition, there are four sizable bedrooms with two Jack-and-Jill baths and an upstairs laundry room.

As if there needed to be any more pros to the deal, nearby amenities include the Jersey Shore, fine dining, theaters, and an easy commute to New York City and Philadelphia.

Long considered one of hip-hop’s pioneer female artists, Latifah is a singer-songwriter, actress, model, television producer, record producer and talk show host. She has earned a Golden Globe, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Image Awards, a Grammy, six additional Grammy nominations, and Emmy and Academy Award nominations. Her most recent endeavor, “The Queen Latifah Show,” won her a People’s Choice Award for Favorite New Talk Show Host.

Needless to say, whoever buys this piece of luxury property probably won’t be “Living Single.”
