Professional basketball player Carmelo Anthony, who plays for the Denver Nuggets, has listed his Colorado mansion for $9,500,000.  The home is located at 6965 S Polo Ridge Drive in Littleton, CO. Carmelo bought the 25,610 square foot mega-mansion, named The Sognare Estate, back in April of 2007 for $12,000,000. The home was built in 2002 by Stephen Jacobsen, the former Executive Vice President of Qwest. Stephen was given Carmelo’s old home in Lakewood as part of a deal when he bought the home. The estate, which sits on nearly 6 acres of land, boasts a 21,000 square foot main house with 8 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a grand foyer with marble columns, a 5,000 bottle wine cellar, a mahogany paneled library, a recording studio, 8 fireplaces, home theater, and a gym. There is also a swimming pool with large pool house, an 11,000 square foot barn, guest house, and a 7-car garage. Carmelo recently gave MTV Cribs an exclusive tour of the home. I wonder why he’s selling the home?

    I loved this house on MTV Cribs, it was one of the best in the shows history. The question is why is he selling it? I know he’s going to be a free agent after next season, meaning he might already be thinking of leaving the Nuggets, or he’s just downsizing 🙂

      I agree with your entire post Chance, I can only think that he feels he will be with another team. Like you I loved the house as well.

    I think I stayed at this hotel once when I was in Phoenix. Oh, wait…

    First off, I have to say the crack pot listing agent should be ashamed of themselves for that pathetic description on what is one of the most expensive listings in the area.

    Secondly, I think this house is kinda gross. Bad faux Mediterranean architecture… the interior finishes are terrible. Just another mega-surburbia house. Nothing unique about it other than size.

    This is one of my favorite mansions I have ever seen. It has a lot of my tastes, and I think to myself, “Please ‘Melo, say it isn’t so?” I hope he’s not planing on leaving the Nuggets, unless he’d play side-by-side with LeBron James in New York or Chicago, or even in Cleveland.

    The “Bellagio” style fountain and all that is sweet, and this place was well planned.

  • They did an MTV Cribs episode on this home, I am sure you have seen it. It’s an amazing house, inside and out.

    Agreed – awful description… agent is a tool.

    The house is staged… maybe he’s already moved to a larger place? It’s really hard to get by these days with only 25,000 sf.
