Things must be looking up for Knicks hoopster Carmelo Anthony and his wife LaLa, because they were reportedly seen checking out a $15 million duplex penthouse at the Chelsea Enclave, 177 Ninth Avenue. The sometimes-troubled couple was last seen touring a $29,000 a month rental at 1212 Fifth Avenue, but it seems now they’d prefer to buy.
Located on the transparent top two floors of the Chelsea Enclave, their latest real estate contender has four bedrooms, 3,452 square feet of indoor space, and 2,640 square feet of outdoor space spread across two terraces.
A 10-fot wall of glass and two terraces surround the expansive and bright interior. The large living room offers East, South, and West facing views, as well as direct access to one of the massive outdoor spaces.
The Alan Wanzenberg custom-designed kitchen features absolute black granite countertops, white oak cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances, and a 46-bottle wine cooler.
The contemporary home boasts two en-suite bedrooms, a library, and a fourth bedroom. The master has floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors, which lead to a private terrace, as well as a windowed sitting area and huge walk-in closet. The luxurious, Botticino Fiorito stone slab master bath comes complete with radiant floors, a glass-enclosed shower, and an oversized soaking tub.
All this Chelsea pad is missing is a private basketball court for Carmelo…
