Deron Williams’ New $15.8M Manhattan Penthouse (PHOTOS)

Complete with Tribeca’s only lily pond.

We know of just about one word to sum up DWill’s new crib: Sick. Love the natural light. Details courtesy of Curbed:

P. Diddy may have checked out the penthouse of Tribeca’s Merchants House, but it’s Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams who purchased the pad, according to the Post’s Jennifer Gould Keil. According to Streeteasy, the 6,800-square-foot was last listed for $16.9 million when it was taken off the market at the end of December, but Keil reports that Williams paid $15.8 million, a price that’s confirmed on the Elliman listing. The apartment has six bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and a 3,000-square-foot terrace that’s so big there’s a little bridge crossing a lily pond.

The home also has a really shiny stainless steel restaurant grade kitchen, a floating staircase, a climate-controlled wine room, a lot of storage, and it comes with two parking garage spaces.

    Two parking spaces…

  • t

    This place has been on the market for a while. FTR, 55 Warren St has a lily pond and more outdoor space. Nice pad tho.

    Niiiiiiiiiice. Pad is going to be dope once he gets a good interior designer.

  • Redd

    I bought some Rochers today :)

  • pposse

    That fat boy would want a ‘restaurant grade kitchen”!!

  • bike

  • RayJr

    I thought that was Big Baby’s kitchen!

  • speedy

    The kitchen looks like taken from an aircraft carrier.

    I much rather live in a spot like this one than in a big mansion.



  • shutup

    ZOGS is that you?

  • Chukaz

    Bad move on his part. If he were to earn 300 mil over his career, he’d have less than 150 mil after taxes. This house is gonna take 10 percent of his life disposable income. According to the website the monthly real estate taxes are 7k and maintenance costs another 3. That’s 10k a month. 120k yearly on top of the almost 16 million the house is listed for. Owning the house for 30 years would cost him more than 3.5 mil. 20 mil of his disposable income is gone right there and that’s assuming he bought it in cash and doesn’t have to pay interest. Broke 2 coming to an ESPN channel near you withing the next 10 years featuring deron williams.

  • GotHandles?

    not too shabby

  • The Philosopher

    That penthouse is NOT worth all of that money.
    I’m not a real estate developer, or what have you, but they have to be kidding.

  • kwamepooh

    true so far but you forgetting that he is rich. so if he has a halfway smart broker his money will b working for him. but beside that youre right. i think its a waste of money

  • LakeShow

    Did you see how chic it is though????
    You could get a 600 hundred year old mansion 10 times larger, with a moat, in North-East Scotland for that price, but the commute would be steep…

  • LakeShow

    I’d rather have my own mountain with a cabin than either :)

  • The Philosopher

    Lol, I hear you.
    I don’t know, though.
    But New York will charge a character.
    For sure.

  • Lorne

    In Tribeca? Yea it is. It’s all about location.

  • Lorne

    All of the athletes on 30 for 30 were rich at some point. Chukaz is actually on point in this case.

  • t

    You’ll pay about ten million more than that for half that space on the upper East Side. Trust me when I tell ya, he isn’t anywhere close to breaking any records with this place.

  • Ganchan

    You forgot about all the money he is making in endorsements…

  • rufus

    This is why 65% of NBAers are broke after 10 years of being out of the league. The money it costs to maintain this place is going to eat through his pockets. Hedge fund managers don’t spend like this with only NBA type money, and they make much more money over longer careers.

  • Irishway’s

    Been fan of DWill since his Illini days. Never thought he’d be bring bank like this thought.. That spare bed room should be reserved for Dee Brown….

  • Perry the PlatyPteranodon

    Yeah, well I paid for all my textbooks this semester…. in cash.

  • The Philosopher

    I believe it.

  • The Philosopher

    I believe that, too.

  • Whoareyou

    Deron Williams and the average man have an entirely different definition of expensive. If only 10% of your disposable income is dedicated to your living arrangement, I’d say that’s pretty damn good. If someone were to make 1,000$ each pay day, let’s say they’re paid bimonthly: that’s 2,000$ a month, 10% of that, that’s 200$ a month for rent. Shoot, I can’t even get a closet of an apartment for that cheap. Not to mention the potential of property value increasing. Better to buy property than a car that depreciates 20% soon as you drive it off the lot.

  • Dagger

    Believe it or not, your money doesn’t vanish when you invest it in a house. Especially not a penthouse in Manhattan.

  • phil

    Beachfront property in hawaii, private island in caribbean, mountain lodge in colorado with a lake, ugly apartment with a nice rooftop.

  • VL1

    Stable income after retire,man. And no gamble and drugs. After all, you never know what tomorrow will bring you.

  • retloc

    Its still not actually “worth” that though. Its an apartment in a city, you could get a real chunk of land for that loot. Like chackaz said upkeep is insane. Espevially when you consider this isnt his only “home.”

  • kwamepooh

    Never denied that. i just said IF he has a good financial adviser he can afford it.

  • Ugh

    Careful guys, this Whoareyou seems to be displaying ‘thought’.

    Dude should be living in Brooklyn if he’s all about the Nets. Bed Stuy, son.

    The two parking spaces sell it

    D Will is enjoying the finer things in life

  • Lorne

    A good financial advisor would advise against this for an athlete. He won’t be making this type of money into his 40′s and 50′s.

  • Comment_System

    it has a resellers value of 14 mil or more.

  • Lorne

    It’s not just a city, it’s the only city that managed to escape the real estate meltdown. The only city where property value always rises. If he were a person able to have an income at this level for another 20 years, it’s a damn great investment. Not so much for an athlete, but a different profession with this kind of money, sure.

  • Redd

    I stayed in a cabin at the top of the smokey mountains, I’m a city kid through & through but it was amazing minus the bears.

    buys house for manhattan

  • Whoareyou

    Not too sure of your tone…haha.

  • kwamepooh

    he has to make 10 k a month to finance that flat. so if he brings only 10 mio of his 300 to the bank he earns enough money. 10 mio with an anual rate of 3,5% is 350.000 a year, 29k a month. just for bringing it to the bank.

  • juice

    If only everything were as simple as you’re making it out to be. First off, even if Deron Williams earns 300 mil in contracts throughout his career (he won’t), he is taking home less than half after taxes in multiple states, so your numbers are already off. You do realize this isn’t his only property, right? He has two other mega expensive homes in other states. Even if he had just this crib, you’d have to account for basic living expenses, plus every other amenity he spends his money on. Investments may or may not lose money, so you’d have to prepare for financial losses no matter how much money you had. Think about it, before they called it off, Kobe’s finances came out as having 150 mil of the 300 mil he made throughout his career. Deron won’t make half of what Kobe made throughout his career even with endorsements. Do you think he should spend like Kobe?

  • juice

    *before they called off Kobe’s divorce.

  • blackthought

    nice crip – but man, for that pricetag through that kitchen out, man! get classy!

  • bobby

    im sure deron can handle his own finances and im also sure that if he didnt have the money, he wouldnt have bought it

  • ariel0297

    like Linda said I’m impressed that a person can get paid $7528 in one month on the internet. did you read this web link zip70.com

  • Happy

    I think the point they’re trying to make is that athletes are indeed rich when they are playing, but their spending habits are the reason the majority go bankrupt within a few years of retirement.

  • Happy

    1. They have ten pics for 6,800 square foot home. Surely you aren’t slow enough to think 10 pics can show everything.

    2. This is how the apartment was staged. These place has been on the market for a while. If you knew anything about real estate, you’d know none of this was Deron’s furniture. He can decorate how he pleases now that it’s his place.

  • LakeShow

    Sounds like you became a real Grizzly Adams.

  • Jwin

    Not one player on the Nets lives in Brooklyn…

  • truth

    This kind of looks like my house…………. on the sims

  • Iggi Vasquez

    HAHAHA!! Prison kitchen

  • JL

    It was the little bridge for me. Always wanted a bridge across a lily pond.

  • JL

    Everyone’s taste is different, but this is a pretty good modern look. Just because you like a log cabin look doesn’t make this one bad.

  • fuggit

    looks like you can’t even fart on those couches.

  • joe shmo

    just a matter of time before all these guys go broke.
    and then what?
