NBA star Carmelo Anthony and his fiance, TV personality Lala Vasquez, are selling their massive suburban Denver mansion for a starting price of $9.5 million. The house, which Anthony bought in 2007 for $12 million, features a 21,000-plus- square-foot main house, a 5,500-square-foot barn and paddock, and a 1,600-square- foot guest house. The main house includes seven fireplaces, a wine cellar, 15 bathrooms, a theater, a gym, a 3,000-square- foot recording studio, a seven-car garage and a 54-foot-long pool.
The house was listed well before rumors began to circulate that Anthony, whose contract expires after the end of next season, would be traded.
Anthony's listing agent told the Denver Post he wasn't sure why Anthony was selling the estate, but speculated that he and Vasquez may want to "get a little closer to town. I think it's because his family situation has changed since he bought it. He has a 3-year-old now."
Anthony and Vasquez will star in a reality show on VH1 based on their engagement and wedding.
