Ah, the rewards of great coaching.
Steve Kerr, head coach of the Golden State Warriors NBA champions in 2015, 2017 and 2018, just bought a home in San Francisco’s Presidio Heights for a premium of $7.35M. The house was listed at $5.799M.
This three-story home built in the 1920’s has 4,000 square feet and great views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Presidio in San Francisco. There are 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a formal dining room that opens onto a spacious patio and a stunning living room with a fireplace.
It makes sense that Kerr and his wife Margot are moving to the City as the Warriors are moving from Oakland’s Oracle Arena to the Chase Center in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood in 2019. It also makes sense that Kerr is within walking distance to his neighbor Bob Myers, General Manager of the Warriors.
On the other end of the country, David Quinn, new head coach of the New York Rangers hockey team, is moving to the Big Apple. Rather than paying a premium for his one bedroom loft apartment in the 100-year old Chelsea Mercantile building, Quinn paid $2.6M for his 3,000 square foot condominium that was originally listed for $3.595 last year.
Quinn’s contemporary-style condo centers around an expansive living and entertainment space with 11’ ceilings, an open kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, wooden cabinetry and walk-in pantry. A 20-foot master bedroom with a walk-in closet and limestone-clad en suite bath will be the perfect place to relax after games at the Rangers home rink, Madison Square Gardens, just eight blocks away.
Amenities to the Chelsea Mercantile building include a concierge, a 10,000 square foot roof deck, gym, in-house dry cleaning service and a Whole Foods Market at the base of the building.
