Thomas’s new home has a cool spiral staircase and extra-high ceilings
Nets players may be moving to Brooklyn, but Manhattan is still where it’s at for the New York Knicks—or at the very least, for forward Lance Thomas, who recently picked up a sleek Tribeca home for $3.56 million, according to Luxury Listings.
The basketball player, who recently signed a four-year, $27 million contract with the team, snagged a two-bedroom, 2.5-bath triplex with soaring ceilings (extra important if you happen to be 6’8″), Italian oak floors, and a very cool oak spiral staircase.
Per the brokerbabble, the “focal point” of the place is a double-height great room, which features a marble = fireplace and a “three-story-high curtain of glass,” offering an “abundance of natural sunlight which percolates over the lush wall of greenery that flanks the home’s southern perimeter.” The master bedroom is upstairs, overlooking the majestic great room; take the spiral staircase downstairs, and there’s an open studio space, a laundry room, and access to 86 square feet of outdoor space.
According to Luxury Listings, the place was last listed as a rental unit, going for $13,000/month.
