Update (8/6/15): It’s official: Former Brooklyn Nets’ star Deron Williams’ Tribeca penthouse is on the market for $33.5M, listed by Andrew Azoulay of Douglas Elliman. (See updated photos).
Original (7/31/15): Kind of hard to find the right adjective for this penthouse duplex. Just … wow.
After the Brooklyn Nets bought out his contract for $25 million and Deron Williams signed with the Dallas Mavericks for $10 million, the NBA star had one small business matter to complete his severance with NYC: Sell his home.
OK, make that a big, splashing business matter. Turns out that the 6,800-square-foot unit at 35 North Moore Street that Williams and his wife bought in 2013 for $15.8 million is now 7,200 square feet and about to hit the Tribeca real estate market for … $33.5 million.
According to the NY Post, the customization of the palatial unit cost Williams millions, and now includes a floating staircase and expanded space, including 3,000 square feet of outdoor terraces populated by a Shin Abe-designed gardenscape. A trophy apartment for sure, this abode isn’t talked about in terms of the number of bedrooms it has (6) or bathrooms (4.5) but by wings. Let’s let the listing notes tell that story:
The north wing of the home features the grand, contemporary great room with 17′ ceilings and 50′ of floor-to-ceiling windows and a continuous skylight overhead. Sitting areas have a gas fireplace, wet bar and surround sound. From the great room’s sliding glass doors, the Japanese garden landscaped by Shin Abe completes the serene, airy space. An exquisite custom-made floating staircase leads to the two bedrooms in this wing, both open and bright with en suite baths. There is a restaurant-grade top-of-the line stainless steel kitchen. Flanking the kitchen is both a spacious china closet and oversized climate controlled wine room. In the southern wing of the loft, a formal living room opens onto the southern terrace.
