It’s only Tuesday and the Sixers have been all over the news this week. Not only did KJ McDaniels throw down a serious dunk-of-the-year candidate the other night, the 1-2-3-4-5-6ers also announced they’re finally getting a new mascot (Sorry, fans of Phil E. Moose).

Now comes word that Larry Brown’s pad in Bryn Mawr has finally been sold. Re-listed back in April for $5.09 million, it looks to have been sold for $4.02 million–what a steal!

Dubbed Linden Hall, the estate featured 7-bedrooms, 9-bathrooms, a soda fountain/game room, home theater and a pool with stone terraces and pool house. Because you simply can’t mention one without talking about the other, especially in this town, Allen Iverson’s former Villanova mansion recently sold for $2.19 million back in mid-December.

Here’s the gallery from April. Please note the Space Jam pinball machine in the soda fountain/game room area.

Unique Bella Vista House With Open Staircase Sells Quickly

This four-bedroom, 18-foot-wide beauty has many pleasing qualities, chief among them the floors, which are random-width hardwood in most of the home, red tile in the kitchen and bathroom, and simply beautiful throughout. There are three outdoor spaces: one is a roof deck; one is a deck off of a bedroom; the last is a back patio area with red brick and much privacy. The staircase inside is unburdened by claustrophobic walls, so the entire thing is in a sort of atrium with light and space seeming to pour through the banisters.

The location can’t be beat when it comes to food: It’s right near the Italian Market; the stores and restaurants on Washington Avenue; and two supermarkets–one insistently healthy, the other featuring plenty of junk food if that’s desired.
