Insiders' Tour of Carmelo Anthony's House
The Denver Nuggets forward is living large and playing hard in his over-the-top house
Though it's fully loaded for play inside, Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony's Mile-High house is all business on the outside.
Big kitchen, huh? Enough room here for that enormous fridge and the carved-wood island with the stovetop and sink. Lots of light too for breakfast with a view at the table by the windows.
Floor-to-ceiling windows shed light on the crazy angles and multiple arches of Carmelo's main floor.
The spiral staircase ascends to Carmelo's theater, arcade and bedrooms. The recessed bulb beneath it is a nice touch, and the narrow, white balusters lighten the stairs' look, so they appear as if they're floating (and, indeed, they are).
Crazy '70s touch, this bean-bag chair in Carmelo's bedroom.
Carmelo sinks a shot from his bedroom balcony overlooking his full indoor court.
Recruited for both collegiate sports, Carmelo chose hoops over the diamond, but he still likes to send a few out of the ballpark—or, at least, into the net—in his indoor batting cage.
Check out the cool leather cover for the bench overlooking Carmelo's batting cage.
A bank of huge recliners face the 100-inch digital projector screen in Carmelo's home theater. This guy's a serious video gamer, so when he's not watching DVDs, he's hammering away at the latest iteration of Ghost Recon in his adjacent arcade room.
The All-NBA ball player is all style, so he needed plenty of space for his jerseys and kicks. Carmelo converted an entire room into a closet.
Carmelo's bathroom is loaded with up-to-the-minute design details.
Carmelo's two-story living room: built-ins, glass-fronted fireplace, crazy throw pillows, portrait of his girl La La Vasquez, from MTV's TRL Live. It's the center of Carmelo's 12,700-square-foot, um, cottage.
