Pat Croce — former president of the 76ers; author of inspirational New York Times bestsellers; self-described pirate; museum founder; and Key West habitué and bar owner — has put his extravagant Lower Merion estate on the market for $7.95 million. The home has six bedrooms and 8 full bathrooms and three half-bathrooms, for a total of more than 10,500 square feet. The house sits on three and a half acres, and was built in 1923. Croce and wife Diane paid 2.35 million for it in 1993.
As befits a man of Croce’s status, the home has a game room, a media room, plenty of garage parking, a pool, tennis courts, a bar, and other perks. It also has a very distinct sense of style, as exuberant as the man himself. Note the pirate-themed chairs.
