Want to prep for Thursday’s Night Market food truck scene and scope out a Main Line estate with a fascinating backstory? There’s an open house for that.

Here’s the deal, the Juliann Lange Team and the Michael Sivel Team are co-hosting a “festival style” open house at the former estate of one Pat Croce, according to an e-mail sent out this affternoon. Yes, Pat Croce, everyone’s favorite pirate enthusiast, explorer, and former president of the future Camden Philadelphia 76ers.

The open house will feature three of Philly’s top food trucks, including SpOt Burgers, Little Babies Ice Cream and Sweetbox Cupcakes. SpOt Burgers won’t be at Night Market, so that’s like an added bonus to going to the open house.

It’s been a long and winding journey for the home on Mount Moro Road in Villanova. The home was originally listed for $7.95 million in late 2013 before being sold at an auction last October for $2.2 million. Now fully renovated, the sprawling 3.5-acre property is back again, this time at $3.969 million.

A few of the highlights include a climate controlled 10-car garage, marble inlay floors, in-ground pool with stone pool house, huge kitchen with 5 (!) Sub-Zero refrigerators and Thermador range, a master suite with fireplace and multiple closets and separate 1,300-square-foot great room above the garage. Oh, and there’s a finished lower level with an exercise area, sauna and entertainment area with a bar.
