Now that the Lakers are out of the playoffs, Coach Mike D’Antoni can turn his attention to moving into the house he and his wife, Laurel, just bought in Manhattan Beach for $6.9 million.
Set on a walk street, the ocean-view home features a three-stop cherry-paneled elevator, which should come in handy for carting beverages from the 2,000-bottle basement wine cellar to the 400-glass wine bar on the top floor. The open-plan house, built in 2003, includes five bedrooms, five bathrooms and 5,000 square feet of living space.
The D’Antonis have listed their Colonial-style home in Rye, N.Y., at $6.95 million. The 7,142-square-foot home features seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
D’Antoni, 61, came to the Lakers this season after a four-year stint with the New York Knicks. He won the NBA coach of the year award in 2005 while with the Phoenix Suns.
