CORRECTION 3/23/2015: A previous version of this post said the Anthonys owned the property; they are renting it.
Knicks forward Carmelo “Melo” Anthony is recovering from knee surgery, but he may be on the move soon. The rental where he and his actress and reality star wife, La La, live overlooking Central Park just hit the market for $12 million.
Built in 1925, the building has just 55 units. A private elevator landing opens directly into the Anthonys’ 15th-floor apartment, which tops 4,000 square feet. It has 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths plus living, dining and library rooms, as well as a versatile media room and office space.
The home boasts high ceilings, solid oak floors and a gas fireplace. Individual thermostats control the temperature in each room, and the bathrooms have radiant heated floors.
The luxury kitchen features Dornbracht fixtures, Miele and Bertazzoni appliances, custom Italian cabinetry and Ceasarstone counter tops.
Located on 5th Avenue near world-class museums, the building offers a 24-hour concierge, 2,600-square-foot fitness center, children’s playroom, a bike room and parking.
Melo and La La reportedly bought an $11-million condo last month in West Chelsea.
