UPDATE: Carmelo Anthony has definitely been in the spotlight and had a fair share of media attention lately. It’s no surprise too that the former Denver Nuggets forward, who’s now dressing for the New York Knicks, also sold his 21,000 sq-ft Colorado home for $6M; which was a $5.8M dollar loss from the price he originally bought it at. Although considering he signed a $65M dollar contract to play ball with the Knicks, this kind of loss can be chalked up as more or less a moving expense in the everyday life of a NBA superstar.
Is the Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony going to leave Denver? At this point rumors are still floating around, but that hasn’t stopped Melo from putting his 21,000 sq ft Mega Mansion up for sale.
The gated estate sits on 5.7 acres, is 21,083 sq ft with 8 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms; and like most superstar’s homes, nothing is lacking here. The entry way has a grand foyer with large marble columns, there is also 8 fireplaces, a 5,000 bottle wine cellar, a mahogany paneled library, a recording studio, a private theater, gym, swimming pool with a large pool house, hot tub, wet bar, 7 car garage, 11,000 sq ft / 3 stall barn with a pasture, a private guest house, and a pond.
Melo originally bought this Mega Mansion in 2007 from Stephen Jacobsen, the former Executive Vice President of Qwest. He paid $12M plus he also gave Stephen his old home in Lakewood as part of the deal.
