Mutombo selling his Main Line house

For $3.5 million, former NBA star Dikembe Mutombo's 7-bedroom, 7-bath spread in Villanova can be yours.

Description reads: "Situated on 4.33 acres, this 8yr young stone colonial Estate offers over 10,000 sq ft of meticulously crafted living space. An ambiance of warmth is created upon entering the Estate with its neutral palette, beautiful archways, custom hardwood and marble flooring, high ceilings, multi-tiered crown molding and impressive custom railings throughout. With first AND second floor Master Suites, Guest House with living quarters and 2nd kitchen, au-pair suite, fully finished walk-out basement, theater, cedar closet, gym, and state of the art communications systems, this Estate leaves little to be desired. An open and light filled floor plan provides wonderful panoramic views of the secluded grounds which include a bridge covered stream, mature trees and professionally designed landscaping. Situated on over 4 pristine acres of land, this homes architectural lines create a tranquil surrounding with European flair."

Mutombo and his wife, Rose, had the house built in 2001 when he was with the Sixers, and they raised six kids there. Mutombo retired last spring from the Houston Rockets after 18 years in the NBA and the family is relocating.

Mutombo recently gave Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a tour of the hospital he funded in his native Congo.
