Legendary sportscaster Marv Albert has finally dumped his New York penthouse apartment for a measly $15 million, according to the New York Daily News. He had originally sought as much as $16.5 million when it was first listed back in May.
How will Albert get by without the extra $1.5 million? Perhaps he will have to rely on the estimated $2 million a year that he earns as a broadcaster.
The 72 year old member of the Basketball Hall of Fame has owned the Manhattan duplex located at 150 Columbus Ave and West 67th Street, also known as Lincoln Square, since 1996. The apartment has three bedrooms and four bathrooms over 3, 553 square feet of interior space and a 1, 500 square foot terrace with a full irrigation system, speakers and a retractable awning. Its master bathroom mirror actually has a television built in it.
The apartment also boasts an overhead movie projector that drops down from the ceiling, an exercise room and a Crestron home system which lets residents control the lighting, music and the shades from a handheld device.
Adam Modlin of the Modlin Group brokered the sale.
Albert originally bought the apartment for $2.393 million. He will be moving downtown with his wife Heather to a bigger place in Tribeca.
