David Wright Makes a Play to Unload NYC Bachelor Pad
The New York Mets
may be hurting, but third baseman David Wright is making some smooth real estate
plays. In March, he moved from Manhattan's ultra-hip Flatiron district to a $12,000-per-month rental
on the Upper East Side. Now he has listed his tricked-out Flatiron bachelor pad
. The asking price? $7.85 million.
Wright purchased the 3-bedroom, 4½-bath, 4,000-square-foot penthouse loft in 2006 for $6.1 million. It includes a salt-water aquarium and gas-fueled stone-and-glass fireplace, as well as a media room with a wall covered with five flat-screen TVs. There also is an upstairs roof deck, complete with a sound system and enclosed hot tub, notoriously delivered by a crane that required shutting down the block of West 21st Street temporarily.
