Deron Williams buys $15.8 million Manhattan penthouse

According to the New York Post, Nets guard Deron Williams has purchased a 6,800-square foot apartment in TriBeCa for nearly $16 million:

Williams has purchased a 6,800-square-foot penthouse loft at the uber-posh 35 North Moore St. for $15.8 million. The six-bedroom, 4 1/2-bathroom residence in the Merchant’s House condo conversion, a building that dates back to 1905, also features a sprawling 3,000 square feet of outdoor space.

The unit includes a modern great room with 17-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and a skylight. Other highlights include sliding glass doors that open onto a Zen-like Japanese garden and a floating staircase. The “restaurant-grade” stainless-steel kitchen comes with a commercial range and dishwasher plus two industrial refrigerators, and there’s also an “oversized climate-controlled wine room.” And if Williams feels like driving back and forth from Barclays Center, the residence comes with two garage spaces.

Williams, who already lived in Manhattan, is one of four Nets players that live in the borough, including Jerry Stackhouse, Kris Humphries, and Joe Johnson. No Nets players live in Brooklyn.
