Alicia Keys is purchasing Eddie Murphy's estate for $12 million.

The 'No One' hitmaker is close to sealing a deal for the 'Shrek' star's New Jersey property, where she can live with her producer husband Swizz Beatz and their two-year-old son Egypt, and the little one will have plenty of space to play as she is also planning to buy two acres of land behind the Englewood estate.

A local real estate source close to the deal told the New York Daily News: ''The closing has been delayed for months but they're almost there. When she closes, she'll buy the two-acre lot behind the house, too.''

Alicia appears to be getting a good deal on the five-acre brick mansion, called Bubble Hill, which went on the market for $30 million seven years ago, and it will give her plenty of opportunity to mix business with pleasure as she can spend time with her son at home as well as put new material to the test in the abode's private recording studio.

The 31-year-old beauty - who shot to fame on 'The Cosby Show' aged just four years old - will not need to worry about going out of the house with a hair out of place as the estate boasts a wood-clad spa containing multiple stations for hair and makeup.

What's more, Alicia, Swizz and Egypt will be warm in the winter thanks to the property's marble fireplaces, plus they can unwind in the indoor pool and ensure their son is the envy of his future classmates by throwing him birthday parties in the mansion's very own bowling alley.

It won't be the first time Alicia has invested in a house from a celebrity after splashing out $14.5 million on Lenny Kravitz's 16-room Crosby Street loft in 2010, which she put on the market for $17.95 million in March this year.
