Nets Star Thaddeus Young Buys Gorgeous $5.4 Million Townhouse Style Condo
Welcome to Brooklyn! Thaddeus Young may be from Memphis, but ritzy Brooklyn Heights is the Nets star’s new home.
Gimme Shelter can now reveal that Young, who signed a four-year, $52 million contract with the Nets in July, has bought a $5.4 million townhouse-style condo at One Brooklyn Bridge Park, located at 360 Furman St.
But don’t expect him to hoof it to Barclays on game days.
“No, I will not walk to work,” Young said on Tuesday, as The Post reported. “I’ll get a Citi Bike. That’s what I’ll do. There’s one of those right outside my condo,” he quipped.
The building is buzzing about their new star resident. Neighbors, we hear, are excited to have him in the building.
Young’s gorgeous three-bedroom, 3½-bathroom unit comes with 13-foot ceilings — not bad for this 6-foot-8 player — and dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows.
The home includes fancy features, like electric shades, a redesigned balcony using reclaimed wood from the Coney Island Boardwalk, a living area with a woodburning fireplace, bar, flat-screen TV and custom wall-to-wall millwork.
The master bedroom comes with a spa-like bath with a separate soaking tub.
There’s also an open chef’s kitchen, media room and a home office, a laundry room and California Closets throughout, along with custom wall treatments featuring hand-painted wall coverings with wood grain and suede and a lacquered steel staircase.
The building, originally a waterfront warehouse built in 1928, comes with killer amenities, from refrigerated storage to a 3,000-square-foot gym, a screening room, music room, two children’s play rooms, a yoga studio, two video game rooms, a pool/billiard room, two business suites, a golf simulator room and an outdoor putting green.
There’s also an indoor parking garage. Listing brokers Karen and Alan Heyman, of Sotheby’s, could not be reached for comment.
