If you were expecting some of its more elaborately marked furnishings, we’re sorry to say that those are pretty much all gone. (Should have made time to go to that auction, huh?) But even if his pirate memorabilia has been anchored in somebody else’s living room, that doesn’t mean Pat Croce’s former estate is without any other distinctive–and more appealing?–features.

Case in point, the grounds, which contain a a number of stone and slate terraces, a large in-ground pool, stone pool house, and lighted tennis court. Inside, the main house’s two-story center hall comes with a butterfly staircase and inlaid marble floors. Nearby, the living room opens out to a covered patio. A “handsomely-paneled study” offers handcrafted bookcases and a fireplace.

Kitchen-wise, an expansive center island and multiple prep areas are for your cooking disposal, while an adjoining breakfast area with fireplace and French doors has access to a terrace and outdoor grill area. Upstairs, the master suite has his & her baths, while the double-bedroom third floor includes a bathroom with adjoining laundry, kitchenette, and entertainment area. There’s another one of these entertainment areas in the basement, though this one comes with a bar.
