NBA star Deron Williams has been playing for the Dallas Mavericks since last summer, so it wasn’t too surprising when the former Brooklyn Nets point guard decided he no longer needed his palatial Tribeca penthouse.
Williams listed the 7,200-square-foot duplex at 35 North Moore Street for $35 million in summer 2015, before lowering the price to a still-staggering $28 million. And now, he’s offering up the six-bedroom, 6.5-bath aerie as a $60,000 monthly rental.
Perhaps it’ll give potential buyers the chance to give the loft a test drive before they make any permanent decisions. Williams bought the condo, which is accessed by way of a private elevator, in 2013 for $15.8 million. Sure, the price jump might seem a little steep, but the hoops star upgraded the space with an impressive renovation, before it hit the market.
The Scavolini kitchen features banquet seating, two industrial refrigerators, plus Wolf and SubZero appliances, says the listing, held by Douglas Elliman broker Andrew Azoulay. There’s a 300-bottle glass-enclosed climate controlled wine room, because obviously a simple wine fridge just won’t do.
A custom floating staircase leads to the master suite, which has its own dressing room and spa bath. It also features soaring 17-foot ceilings, as well as a gas fireplace and a wet bar.
If you need to escape for some fresh air, the two terraces come to a grand total of 3,000 square feet—one includes a fireplace and seating, the other has a BBQ and a dog house. Sure, there might not be room for a full basketball court, but per the listing photos, it’s an ideal entertaining space and has extremely Instagram-worthy Tribeca views.
And if you aren’t as athletically gifted as the basketball star, it also appears Williams currently has a ping pong table set up in the great room.
Before the basketball star scooped up the duplex, Sean Combs was reportedly interested in the sleek space. Combs is still trying to offload his long-suffering condo at the Park Imperial, but perhaps the rental will draw Combs to Tribeca once more.
