When he hasn’t been busy revamping the New York Knicks, Phil Jackson has been scoping out NYC real estate. And according to city records, the Knicks President purchased an apartment at the Osborne, 205 West 57th Street, for $4.85 million.

Considered one of the greatest NBA coaches in history, Jackson spent many years with both the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers, but now he’s jumping back into the New York City scene head first, having gotten his start with the Knicks in 1967 as a player. His new home was meticulously renovated by Ferguson and Shamamian Architects to preserve the original details of the landmarked 1883 building. Hand-carved mahogany pocket doors, inlaid oak and cherry floors, and stained glass transom windows are just some of the historic accents that make this three-bedroom apartment a true masterpiece.

The double living room has 14-foot ceilings, gorgeous bay windows that provide sunny southern views, and wood-burning limestone fireplaces at both ends. Through the pocket doors is the mahogany-paneled library, which features glass-fronted bookcases, a decorative fireplace, and an adjacent full bath.

Another wood-burning fireplace anchors the dining room, which sits off the eat-in kitchen. Two bedrooms, both with en-suite baths, are off the private hallway. The spacious master bedroom boasts ample closet space and a marble bath with double sinks and luxury fixtures.

We’re thinking Phil Jackson’s positive apartment vibes can only help bring the Knicks back to the promise land…but we’re not so sure what Carmelo will have to say about that.
