Though their lease doesn’t end until August, Carmelo and LaLa Anthony’sUpper East Side/East Harlem rental has hit the market for $12 million, according to the Post. Fear not, though, the New York Knicks star and his wife will not be homeless. They inked a deal last month for an $11 million, High Line-adjacent, full-floor unit at Cary Tamarkin’s new complex at 508 West 24th Street. The couple’s rental at 1212 Fifth Avenue is a 4,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, pre-war condo with exceptional Central Park views.
A private elevator opens to the home’s large entertaining area, comprised of the living, dining, and library rooms, as well as a den/media room and office space. The residence has high ceilings, a gas fireplace, plaster coffered ceilings and moldings, solid oak wood floors, solid core doors, and recessed LED lighting. Thermo-pane casement windows are bordered by custom millwork concealing the heat and air conditioning units. Both the state-of-the-art kitchen and the luxurious bathrooms boast high-end fixtures, and the latter comes complete with radiant heated floors.
The Anthonys’ move downtown came after a year of touring impressive Chelsea apartments. Their new home has the same contemporary, elegant feel as their former Upper East Side rental.
