Deron Williams' New NYC Pad Is Magnificent (Photos)
Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams is most certainly reaping the rewards that come with being the star attraction for his suddenly very trendy and now New York City based NBA team. The re-energized Brooklyn franchise stands in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, while also running the floor within the walls of the extravagant and exceedingly well regarded Barclays Center. It is almost unfathomable to think that this exact same organization was playing its games in “beautiful” downtown Newark, less than one year ago.
Williams is currently working under a five-year/$98.7 million contract. The Illinois alum's most significant Big Apple transaction, thus far, has been the recent purchase of a magnificent $15.8 million condo, located on the penthouse floor of the Merchants House, in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood.
Here are a series of photos showcasing the 6,800-square-foot abode, equipped with a 3,000-square-foot outdoor terrace.
The indoor portion of the pad possesses 6 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a climate-controlled wine room, as well as a stainless steel, restaurant grade kitchen.
The layout of Williams' incredibly massive terrace area features ample open-air seating, a lush Japanese garden and a lily pad. This level of residential outdoor opulence is nearly unheard-of within the five boroughs of our nation's largest city.
Williams' residence is situated three miles (via the Manhattan Bridge) and four miles (via the Brooklyn Bridge) from Barclays Center, while sitting 12 miles (via the Holland Tunnel) from the PNY Center, the Nets' East Rutherford, New Jersey practice facility.
With Nets minority owner Jay-Z in mind, it appears safe to say that Deron Williams has discovered a really lavish way to experience his very own “Empire State of Mind.”
