This Is The Cincinnati Home Where Serena Williams Filmed Her Beats By Dre Commercial

You know that Beats by Dre commercial with tennis superstar (and Sotto frequenter) Serena Williams?

The one where she wakes up at 5:45 a.m. in a modern apartment to her Apple Watch alarm, drinks a cup of tea in her posh Nike workout attire, puts in her Beats bluetooth headphones, launches Apple Music, and sets off on an "I'm gonna prove that Tracy Austin voiceover wrong" morning run?

Well, Cincinnati is the backdrop for all that action. And this is the modern apartment where Serena starts her day: 311 West Fourth Street.

The first single-family home built in Downtown Cincy's business district in decades, this three-story gem will let you live the high life while enjoying all the comforts and amenities of a modern townhouse.


3 bedrooms

3 baths

3,200 sq. ft. with studio or commercial space on the first floor

5 parking spaces in an attached garage


Not only was this home the site of that famous Serena Williams commercial, it's also been photographed and filmed numerous times for other purposes. You'll love the look of it, obviously. But so will your friends.

What's not to love? It has a first floor with 16-ft. ceilings and a second floor with enormous eight-ft. windows. Also, it has an open floor plan, a custom kitchen with quartz countertops, exposed brick and steel beams, and an enormous outdoor patio. Plus, it's located smack-dab in the middle of pretty much everything.

You'll love one other thing about this home, too -- and it doesn't show up in a photograph. That'd be its LEED certification. That certification means the home is environmentally friendly and tax abated up to $562,000.

Jiminy. Christmas.
