Allan Houston, a former Knicks basketball player and current assistant general manager of the team, is selling his massive, almost 20,000-square-foot French revival home in Westchester County for just under $20 million. As the New York Post learned, the home located in Conyers Farm, a private gated community that borders Greenwich, Connecticut and Armonk, New York, has seven bedrooms and 10 marble bathrooms. Although it’s been on and off the market, sources told the Post that Houston wants to move his wife Tamara and their seven children to Manhattan in order to be closer to work. Facing Converse Lake, the expansive residence features a custom-designed basketball court, movie theater, trophy room, heated outdoor pool and, golf putting green.
Houston, who won gold in the 2000 Sydney Olympics, played for the Knicks for nine years before retiring in 2005. He later became the team’s assistant general manager. His lavish pad was custom-built in 2006.
Even the his-and-hers closets have been meticulously designed.
The athlete had a custom-designed cherry-wood basketball court built in his home, as well as a circular trophy room to show off his impressive accolades (that’s a sillhouette of him shooting on the floor).
There’s no shortage of amenities to be found at this residence. It includes a music room with a domed, gilded ceiling, a home theater, fitness center, a marble-clad steam room, heated outdoor pool, and a putting green.
The estate has access and stunning views of Converse Lake. In the private community of Conyers Farm, residents include Netscape founder Jim Clark, Richard Baker of Hudson’s Bay Co., and Thomas Peterffy of Interactive Brokers Group.
