It’s hard to feel bad for LA Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni, who resigned as the team’s coach Wednesday. Afterall, when he was hired by the team last year, he plunked down $6.9-million for this house in Manhattan Beach, reported Lauren Beale of the Los Angeles Times. The three-story, five bedroom house has ocean views and an elevator with plenty of living and entertaining space, including a 400-glass wine bar and huge wine cellar.
It was a huge difference from the Rye house D’Antoni sold for $6.85 million in July, after accepting the Lakers job. The former Knicks’ head coach lived in Rye while he coached the team and put the home at 9 Hunter Lane up for sale. D’Antoni purchased the home in 2008 for $5.75 million.
The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom waterfront home sits on 1 acre on Rye’s Apawamis Club, which dates to 1890. The home has a gunite pool and a combo three-car garage and gym. There’s also an eat-in kitchen, balcony and walk-out basement. While I am a sucker for a fabulous beach house, D’Antoni’s Rye property is really special. Take a look:
