This girl is on fire.

And so is her bank account.

Alicia Keys and her hubby Swizz Beats has been revealed as the mystery buyers of an ultramodern mansion in the seaside enclave of La Jolla, Calif., which is a 20-minute drive from downtown San Diego.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the circular, cantilevered residence sold last week for $20.8 million, and is reportedly the town’s second-biggest residential transaction era.

Built in 2007 and designed by award winning architect Wallace E. Cunningham, the 11,545 square-foot property, which includes a detached guest house, has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms and includes such luxuries as a home theater, gym, library, an all-glass elevator, a black tiled, vanishing-edge heated pool, stainless steel spa and a kitchen with custom designer appliances.

Invisible from the street, the private property is sequestered down a long driveway shared with two other mansions — owned by non-celebrities — and sits on the edge of a cliff, directly above the Pacific Ocean.

Billionaire Ron Burkle and Walmart heiress Christy Walton are among the well-heeled neighbors of the hitmaking couple who have been married since 2010.

The property’s previous owners include magicJack chief executive Donald Burns, who said he brought the property for about $14. 1 million in 2011 and originally listed it for sale for $30 million in 2018.

Keys and Beatz already also has a 25,000 sq. ft. mega mansion in Englewood, N.J., which was acquired for $12.1 million in 2013 from actor/comedian Eddie Murphy.

The 15-time Grammy Award winner has a reported net worth of $100 million.
